Remember - One Word Titles

Inspiration can strike at any time.  When I saw this lone piece of Prima patterned paper on a shelf in a scrapbook store, I knew right away it was destined for this photo of my daughter and her friend.



Supplies: Patterned Paper, Doilies, Flowers, Leaves, Rub-Ons: Prima; Felt Flowers: Dollarama; Paint-a-Shade Paint and Marker: Close To My Heart; Pen: Sharpie
Appeared in the June 2012 edition of SNR Mag's One Word Title article.
 
 
The colours would compliment the photo and the one word title was a perfect fit to document their special summer sister relationship.

I used some rub-ons from my stash to create a matte and journaling area. Instead of using rub-ons, you could achieve the same effect with stamping instead.





Then I added in cluster mixes of Prima fabric, paper and crochetted flowers, doilies, and leaves. I recoloured the leaves to a shade more suited to the title and background lines using a marker and damp paper towel. I also used the CTMH Create-A-Shade Pearlized paint to paint over the crystal jewel in the felt flowers to coordinate with the centres of the Prima flowers.




I fussy cut around the beginning of the title in order to tuck in a cluster to complete the visual triangle.







It started as only one piece of patterned paper. It goes to show that you do not need multiple pieces of patterned paper or cardstock to create a memorable layout.

 
TTFN,
