Locker Room: Layout with Triangles

Blog Image_Locker Room

Hello there!!! Caroli here and today again I’m playing at the Locker Room ūüôā This time I want to share with you a step by step tutorial for making a simple layout using our January kit, Tailor Made.

So, let’s start! First thing I made was placing my pic in the rigth side of the paper, as base I used this grid patterned paper from Amy Tangerine’s Stitched.

As I said, the main element in this layout will be triangles, so I’ll use chipboard ones from Creative Embellishments included on the kit as pattern for cutting some paper triangles, and also I will adhere paper to them to make them more versatile.

After cutting triangles of several sizes and patterns this is how I placed them on my layout:

In order to give volumen and make the layout more interesting, I used foam dots behind some triangles, placed some a bit behind the pic and some other over the pic.¬† I do love how chipboard ones look in combination with paper ūüôā

Now it’s time to place my title, and of course I’ll use the gorgeous Thickers included on the kit, I simply adore them ‚̧¬† I also used grey alpha from my stash to complete the phrase.

At this point this is how my layout looks like, it’s almost finished:

I just need to add some more embellishments, journaling and some splatters of mist and it will be done.

And this is the final result, such a simple yet interesting layout with lots of tiny details that make it special ūüôā

Happy Craft & Hobby Mega Show weekend everyone! ¬†Jody is here on the blog today while Gia, Lacey and Erica and super busy ‘working’ at CHA!! I have to say it sure doesn’t feel like ‘work’ when we totally love what we are doing!! ¬†This has been an amazing year for us for sure!

I am¬†completely in love with our January Kit Tailor Made. ¬†What’s not to love, right?! ¬†Amy Tangerine, Chic Tags, May Arts Ribbon, plus our January Challenge Sponsor Creative Embellishments!! ¬†Here’s my latest layout created with Tailor Made.

Here are some close ups for you! ¬†As you can see, the triangles are white in my layout. ¬†They came a plain brown color but I really wanted them to have a softer look. ¬†I decided to heat emboss them with Ranger White Embossing Power to achieve¬†this look. ¬†It’s very easy to do! All you need to do is to press the chipboard pieces into your Versamark ink pad to get them nice and sticky. ¬†Then, just shake some embossing power of your choice over the pieces and heat set them!

In the photo below you get a much closer look at the little finishing touches I added along the right side of my photo.  I fussy cut a bunch of the little hearts from the super sweet Amy Tangerine paper with all the little watercolor hearts inside the Polaroids.  I also added some teal ink to a few fabulous little Heidi Swapp resist die cuts.  I still wanted to add a little soft sparkle on this layout so I added some 10 mm Moonshine sequins and silver triangle sequins which are not in the kit.  The little photo negative acetate piece is from Tim Holtz (from my stash.)
