Happy Thursday! For my page today, I decided to use a tool that rarely gets used from my stash: punches, along with my February Kit. I used some small circle punches to add some bright spots of color to my layout below:
For the rest of my page, I kept to a palette of cool colors with the purples, teals, and mint in a simple layout design with a black of patterned paper on the left and another on the right and a strip of gingham down the middle. Centering a photo on this strip helps guide your eye to the photo.
For embellishing, I fussy cut some of the black and white flowers and added some white tags for journaling.
I felt like I needed something to “pop” on the page, and was playing around with other papers, but I tried a tiny bit of this corrugated cardboard from Fancy Pants and it really helped add some amazing contrast.
I actually tried to cut to corrugated cardboard using a cut file and my Silhouette, but it was an epic fail! The cardboard ripped and the design did not cut. Perhaps a deep blade would work? Anyways, I decided just to stick with some simple circles that I punched with some circle punches.
Thanks for stopping by today!
