3 Layouts Inspired by the Multi-Photo Solutions Workshop
In this first layout, I enjoyed creating the snowy scene at the bottom of the page. I cut the mountains and larger trees from a pre-printed paper, then added the light green dimensional tree stickers and cut the red trees from another patterned paper.
As soon as I saw the example for this next layout, I knew I had to pull out that pack of mini-clothespin from my stash and give it a try.
Several of my photos were slightly blurry and the lighting in the auditorium was not good, so I knew cropping them down & using them with the twine would be perfect.
The grid design with photos, patterned papers, title, embellishments, and journaling of this next layout was so much fun to put together!
I even covered this chipboard sewing mannequin with purple glitter . . . and made a little bit of a mess, too!
Which one of these ideas most inspires you - creating a scene, adding a clothesline, or using a grid design?
