This is a layout on some photographs that I've taken during the Parent's Day occasion at Ryan's pre-school.
I've captured the faces of some kids with Ryan during that day and these photographs had actually inspired me on the title for this layout and design of it. As the old saying goes, kids are the future. And with that, I've titled the layout "Future".
The sweet faces on the photographs had actually brought my thoughts back to some childhood art such as spirographs which I've also came across some recent magazine layouts using it. Therefore, I've decided to give it a try in this layout.
First of all, I've altered my pattern papers using two different techniques. (You can refer to "Design using Stamp Pad" and "Alter your Pattern Papers with Spirographs" in my tips and tricks section)
Secondly, I've used spirographs too, to add some characters to the flowers that I've used here. (Refer to "Add On to your Flowers with Spirographs" in my tips and tricks section)
I've used a hidden tag to do my journaling in this layout which is hidden within the pile of photographs. I've hand sewn all the stitches in this layout using some emboidery thread. I've pull some colours from the left side of the layout to the pile of photographs by using some matching colours stitches.
I've used some hand held hole punchers to punch out some small yellow and white circles of crafting foams to embellished the big circle and the swirls. This will add some dimensions to the layout.
This is the first multi-photographs layout that I've done in months and with seven photographs, it can be quite challenging. Hope you all liked what I've come up with.
