Truth is, if I had waited even longer...til I was stressed and worried I wouldn't make it in time, then I would probably like my layout even more. Then's when I do my best work. It's weird.
So I have my last layout to share with you. It uses the fun Trendsetter collection from Fancy Pants.
Things to note about my layout:
* This layout has a lot of layering on it. When I do this, I like to lay it all out before adhering things down. Makes it easier.
* I am still in love with the stencil cards from Fancy Pants Designs. I have used them in many different ways. For this layout I took out some of the pieces of the design, but not all of them. I think it creates a fun, unique touch to your layout.
* Design experts will tell you that elements in three are best (or at least in odd numbers). I am a rule-thrower-outer, but in most cases I do like my elements in three. For example, I used both the negative and positive parts to a heart stencil card on my layout, so to create a third heart I stitched around the "ME" in my title. Now there are three hearts in a row in my design.
* Like the "messy" look of ink splatters on your projects? Well, why not try a twist and add some glitter spots. I just added a touch of liquid glue to my layout then sprinkled on glitter for a fun splattered look. :) Don't be afraid of it getting messy...if you look at my dots, they are far from perfect!
Here are some close up's of my layout:
Give me a shout out if you too are a last minute gal! :)
Have a fantastic day!
