I love what Scrapbook and cards today does with their column called: Easy, Detailed, Expert and I thought that I would give it a swing wile designing these 2 layouts for the Scrapbox with the Cosmo Cricket paper line "Girl Friday"!
When I create a layout I always try to form a triangle by placing my elements on the page and have either a horizontal or vertical line to keep your eyes aligned with the picture. If you look at the "Easy" layout bellow, I have the little bug tag with the buttons row and title that creates a triangle and here again with the "Expert" one I have the same triangle with the cluster of elements near the top little butterfly, the little marching bug and combines with part of my title.
For my vertical line I have used the placement of the paper and also the patterns of the papers (it's also another good trick to keep in mind)!
To jazz up the "Expert' one I haded additional layers, extra border punch's and a mix of fun brads! Dig in our stash, Mix it up... and have fun! Loving the brads....
The Iris is done and I love it. The piece on the left I've been working, reworking and adding details here and there for a few weeks now -- I'm finally gonna give up on it and say it's not so great but it's as finished as I'm going to get it. You win some you lose some -- but in the end I tried and that's really almost care about. #catherinescanlon #catherinescanlondesigns #flowers #waterbrush #watercolor #watercolorink #watercolorflower #flowersofinstagram
