On The Road layout

Hey crafty friends,

Today I have a layout to share that was inspired by a layout on Pinterest. The original was a digital page, but I thought I could make it work with papers. Here is my layout:

I used my mini alphabet punch board to create the letters from white cardstock. I cut my pre-printed photos down to the same height as the letters. I shuffled the photos around until I had a combination that worked - as the words were going on top of the photos I had to make sure I wasn't covering up important parts of the photos. I covered the seems between the photos with the letters where possible too.

I made little clusters between the rows of photos, and tucked in behind the photos and title.

The embellishment clusters contain elements in the colours matching the photos, as well as shipping tags and cars - things that match the travel theme of the page.

I did a rather large section of journaling on this layout. It was necessary to tell the story. I didn't want it hidden, as then you need to remove the layout from it's pocket to be able to access it. I simply did all the journaling across the bottom, running from one side to the other, as the photos do, for continuity.

This was the layout on Pinterest:

Pinterest is a great place for inspiration. You don't have to do it like it is in the Pinterest image, you change things to suit your page. I did mine traditional rather than digital. My title ended up being about the same height as the Pinterest image by sheer luck. I added embellishments to my page. I did my journaling the width of the photos rather than the width of the last word. It can be a brilliant starting block whether it ends up quite similar or vastly different. It's a great tool when you're stuck in a rut, or just don't know what to do with a particular photo or group of photos.

Until next week,
Jessica T
