Embellishments Only

Pool Party
Designed by Amy Perkins

While Randi is enjoying the snow... I thought I would warm you up with a summer layout!!

I tried something I've never done before with this layout... I only used embellishments.  There is no pattern paper and only white cardstock!!  This double layout came together very quickly to my surprise.  I arranged the pictures in a "scattered" way and then added embellishments... and a lot of them! 

I often seem to have leftover embellishments from kits, and I'm left wonder how I can use them up.  Keeping a neutral background was the solution!  There are embellishments that I am challenged when using, like die cut frames... but it really seemed to work this time.  I skipped the journaling and added several titles instead.

Try something new and use up those embellishments you have to create a layout that is unique and different.


Techniques used:
  • Photo split between layouts
  • Multiple photos "scattered" on layout
  • Minimum cropping
  • Layering rub-ons
