Adventurous






This is a layout about Ryan being so adventurous while we take him feeding some tortoise. He is so determined to do the procedure right.
In this layout I've used two photographs of Ryan and I want to make it looked link together. I try avoiding the technique of attaching two photographs onto the same matting. Therefore, I've thought of the lacing technique to link them up. It gives so much depths to the overall look.
I've also used the multi-layers masking technique here to create a more interesting background to work with.
In this layout, I've created some unique embellishments using the "Stitch Up your Buttons" technique. Refer to my tips and tricks section.
I've also used some transparencies to create sort of small quotes overlays to dress up the corners of the photographs.
The title is hand-written and I've also created the chipboard circles from scratch. I've used some foam tapes to attached it to give some dimensions to the layout.

these are so fantastic, where do you buy your stash from or is it mostly hand made by you.
