Maggie Holmes Design Team : You + Me

Hello once again! I'm back with another layout that I absolutely love. One of my favorite thing to do is to fussy cut. When I saw this patterned paper 'parasol', I instantly knew that I had cut them out to create my own background. Fussy cutting is very therapeutic for me. If you haven't try it, you should! 

First, I cut the parasols out and kept them aside. I wanted to create lines & texture on the white cardstock,  so I decided to machine stitched the diagonal lines. I really loved the effect. White thread on white cardstock, subtle but looking amazing at the same time. I layered Next, I positioned the photos somewhat in the middle and added all the fussy cuttings onto the white cardstock. A title and some minimal embellishments completed the layout. I wanted to keep this whole layout clean and simple because of the colorful parasol are placed around the layout. 

To make it more interesting, I snipped part of the lines and created 3D effect to them by adhering foam dots to raise. 

The positioning of the photos and embellishments need to be placed on the layout in a way that they compliment and enhance the photo(s). It is fairly important to take some time to think thru and have a little plan on how you want to build those layers are you create!


The black & white dotted paper sure gave a good contrast with all colors in the layout. 

Thanks for coming by!
