I think....I think this is my favorite layout from this month's batch of Little Black Dress Kit layouts. I think. It's hard to tell, I was so inspired by this kit!
When I first got the kit and started to think up page ideas for it, I knew I wanted to use scraps of patterned papers around the edges of a page. Simply because there is so much great color in this month's kit! I wasn't sure what photos to use with this design, but I knew I wanted to make a page like this.
I had it in my head right from the beginning that I would include "journaling" on the photo. So I included the bullet points (so to speak) of what my fashion consists of. I wanted the photo to be big so I printed it at 8x8. It's a littler grainy but I'm not at all bothered. I also printed out a few more tiny instagrams highlighting the other fashion I mentioned.
Instead of adding a paper border, I decided to use gesso to tone down and differentiate my photo from the background paper. I definitely learned some things in Wilna's Art Class if anyone is interested in learning more about different mediums, such as gesso. From there it was just about adding scraps of patterned paper around the edges and adding dimension with a bit of wood veneer.
Non-kit supplies used: Martha Stewart Glitter Paint, cream cardstock, gesso, Silhouette, Font: Arial, Arial Narrow, Arial Black
