Hello!!! It's Meridy, I'm back again today with another 2 page layout using the "Trailblazer" Classic Kit.
I really enjoyed using all of the embellishments on this layout, label stickers, starburst punches from the cardstock, wood veneers, and a few phrases that I fussy cut from the paper in this month's kit all layered together was a change of pace for me.
I made the mini paper hat and boat embellishments from newspaper just like the paper hat and boat my son is playing with in the photos.
Here is a detail shot from the layering down the side of my photo. I started by placing the October afternoon label stickers, then the fussy cut phrases, next I added a couple of the wood veneers, and finally I tucked in the starburst punches and banners here and there. I basically kept building up the embellishments until I felt that it looked full enough.
On the opposite side of the layout I used an 8x10 collage so I could include plenty of photos. I also brought in a few starburst punched circles and some fussy cut phrases to visually connect both sides of the layout.
I love the burlap tag that came in the kit, it adds extra texture to the layout and I again tried to use the same types of embellishments as I did on the opposite side of the layout to bring everything together. There are so many colors, textures, and embellishments on this layout that I decided to use a red pen to outline quite a few pieces of paper and some of the label stickers in order to make them stand out a bit.
Thank you for joining me today! I would love to see what you made with your kit this month. Please share some of your work on the Noel Mignon Members Facebook Page.
Have a great week!!!
