Good Stuff - CSI Guest Detective - Case File #140
this month. I used the Storyteller Collection by Kaisercraft because the colors
coordinated perfectly with this weeks color palette.
Here is how I solved Case File #140!
Evidence: Stripes/polka dots, Ruffles, Curves
Testimony: Journal about an adventure (journaling is hidden on the back)
Often, when I'm layering multiple sheets of pattern paper, especially if they are bold or bright, I try to add contrasting 'pops' of white to break up the colors and/or patterns.
I have found that if you add layer upon layer of pattern paper, some of your layers will blend in or get 'lost' amongst all of the colors and/or patterns. Adding white elements such as doilies, ribbon/trim, etc. provides a contrast, and allows each layer to stand out.
On this layout I used several transparent clocks and overlays with white text to provide a contrast.
Maya Road – time flies clocks
Simple Stories – DIY photo overlays
Celebrate It – ribbon
Misc. – lace, pearls
Martha Stewart – daisy fan
Thanks for looking!
