Hello everyone, Danielle here with you from the Locker Room. Today I would like to share with you my process of creating a layout. Of course every layout is different, but usually some basics of building up the design is the same for most of my layouts.
I start with picking some papers and embellishments I want to work with. In this case I chose the Heidi Swapp September Skies from the December Enchanted Meadow kit and I picked a photo that works with the colors of the collection and with the sentiments on the papers and embellishments.
Then I move the papers around to decide which one will be my background and which one is the best fit to be placed directly behind my photo.
After that I pick the other papers that work best and what design I want on my page. When I figured out the basics, I glue it down with only one drop of Zip Dry in the middle of each paper. I use this glue because it is very forgiving in case you make a mistake.
Because I only use a tiny bit of glue on the middle of the papers, it gives me the option to tuck in embellishments here and there and to move them around until I’m happy with the result.
Then it was time to give the Heidi Swapp ephemera some color with Color Shine. What I love about her collections is that any color of her Color Shines does match to it. For example if you take a look at the striped paper, you can relate each of the colors on it to one of the Color Shines, so you can’t go wrong!
I added some of the sequins stamps that came with the kit and moved some embellishments around after coloring them. And here’s is the finished layout with everything glued down properly.
