Hi everyone, Marinette here today with you to share how I create a layout from beginning to end. I chose to work with the gorgeous Soleil collection. I’m so in love with the papers and the embellishments.
So first of all gather your supplies:
What I usually do first when I create a layout is to add black ink splashes on my background:
Paired with the warm colors of the Rhubarb paper it adds a sophisticated touch on it.The B&W photo I chose fit perfectly with this line because it contrasts a lot with the other soft colors.I started by adding some stamping on my background and a piece of torn page from an old book as well as a strip of paper on the bottom of my page.
Now let’s go for the fun part of my layout:
You know how much I love to add a lot of layers on my pages so I started by pulling out bits of patterned paper, stickers all around my photo.
I never work directly on my background paper when I add all my layers, this way I can easily change the position of my papers until I’m satisfied with the result.
I like some layers behind, some vertical and some horizontal:
I chose a mix of colors which pops. I think the mix of yellow and red is perfect with this B&W photo.
Now the next step is to glue it down on my background paper.
But before this step I chose to add a little touch of red spray ink
Now that I totally satisfied with my elements I can glue all my papers together.
Finally after glue all my papers, I added some stickers on my layout for my title and some doodlings:
The final touch for my layout is this parasol from the element stickers. It fits perfectly with my photo
Tada – my layout is finished:
