For my layout, I started with this piece of paper. (Note: the gingham is the print on the reverse side).
I rotated the paper 90 degrees so that the banners were at the top, but I wasn't sure what to do about the image of the big blue chair. It was too ornate for the casual look of the photos I wanted to use.
I loved the pretty patterns and colors of this chevron paper and thought it could work with my photos, but the paper was rather dark.
To lighten the look of the chevron paper, I cut it apart.
I arranged the chevrons to cover the chair, allowing some of the lighter background paper to peek through each row.
I added a bit of stitching with white thread for a bit of texture and contrast.
A few white journaling strips at the bottom bring more light to the page and help break up the strong chevron pattern.
I added three photos, with bingo cards tucked under each to help draw the eyes around the page. At the top, I added a title and a few embellishments. A nice transformation, I think!
Thanks for much for stopping by. I hope you have a great week!
