Layout tutorial: Little Yellow Bicycle
I'm back today with another layout using the July kit at My Creative Scrapbook. This kit featured the Poppy collection from Little Yellow Bicycle and I loved how sunny and happy it is.
I wanted to spotlight the pretty papers so I cut a few of my favorites in wide strips. I adhered them to white cardstock, leaving some room at the bottom for my title. I cut the white cardstock approximately 11 x 11 inches, then placed it on another patterned paper for a framed look.
To break up the strong horizontal lines, I added a curved banner and rounded some of the paper edges. A trio of butterflies helps give the page a sense of movement.
I tucked a tag under the photo, after first running it through my printer.
To print directly on the ledger paper from the kit, I cut out a small piece (a bit bigger then I would need for my tag) and adhered it to standard copy paper with washi tape. Then I ran the taped-on ledger paper through my printer. I removed the washi tape and cut the tag to size, adding a flower at the top.
Here's another look at the layout. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great week.
