Same Idea, Different Layout

Hi everyone!  So...I have a couple layouts to share with you today, both using a same design concept...we'll you'll see.  They both use the Plumeria collection from BasicGrey.

I started with a sheet of paper and using a craft knife I cut out a large burst template.  Very imperfect.  I sponged ink over the template to create a design on a different sheet of paper.  Here's my first layout, using the sponged design:


It's part elegance and part funky.  :)

Here are the close up's:

I'm digging the purple and orange.  :)

And then instead of throwing that paper template away, with ink and all, I added it to form my next layout:


Lot's of journaling on this one...and it's the real kind.

Here are the close up's:


One thing I am really appreciating as I go through some of these old photos...the dates on the back!  I need to make sure I do more of that on my own photos or layouts.

Well thanks for stopping in!!

Have a wonderful day!

I am super amazed at your creativity!! I would never have thought to do that, either make a template and then use the template on another project!!! I love these layouts!!! AND you can count on me giving this technique a try!!!

I have to agree the stitching is amazing and the design is wonderful. The 2 maybe similar but they each are unique in their own way. Love it!
