I wanted to pull out the colors in the October kit, Sapphire, to use on a back-to-school page. I thought the combination of navy, mustardy yellow, and aqua were a great palette, and some of the greys and blacks on the Pinkfresh patterned papers reminded me of a chalkboard look.
I wanted to do something with “ABC’s”, so I used a cut file to cut out my letters, making the rectangles just smaller than my photo to make the photo stand out more. You can see how I manipulated the cut file in my video below. I backed the letters with different colored papers.
My initial plan was to use kraft paper as the background, but I just wasn’t feeling it. I had ONE whole sheet of patterned paper left in the kit, and it was a perfect fit! I added a few more black splatters to match what was already on the paper, and then just layered my cut files and photo on.
To draw more attention to the photo, I want to have some “arrows” pointing towards it, and the triangles from one of the patterned paper were perfect for the job. I tried to create a visual triangle with the colors at the top and bottom with the colors on the abc cards.
