Just Add Ink #209

We challenge you to 'Just Add LAYERS'. I'm looking forward to seeing the variety in all the entries this week over at Just Add Ink. Go on, it really couldn't get any simpler.

Layering is one of the most basic ways to make anything look good and stand out. On this page I've used several panels of designer paper layered with their co-odinating card stock and then stacked them on top of each other. So many patterns! But it seems to work...

The little girl is my lovely daughter on one of our family photo shoots. My how she has grown! When I asked her opinion on this page she said 'Good. Great! I mean... it's not normal. Put something else on it.' Funnily enough she voiced my thoughts, hence the addition of the butterflies which she found very satisfying. 


Scrapping Tip: When thinking 'layout' lead your viewer's eye on and off the page with intention. Here I've done it the way we'd naturally read something: ON - top left corner, THROUGH - the photos themselves, OFF - bottom right corner.

  3. A beautiful page Susan! I love the DSP you used as the base and how you've pulled the colours for the DSP panels. Your daughter obviously has a designers eye - the butterflies are great! x
