Hey everyone, I'm here with another layout to share in the Atlas Summer Series where for 20 days on the Pink Paislee blog you can find Summer inspired layouts with free project sheets! How awesome is that!
The colours in this layout were certainly inspired by the Batman singlet my son is wearing. I chose the Altitude and Postcard paper to compliment this, as well as some Black and White American Crafts card stock. Every time I create with the Atlas collection I am more amazed at its versatility. This photo was initially not the one I had chosen to document and didn't think it would 'work' with this collection due to the bold colours, but upon sifting through the papers I could see that I would be able to achieve the colour combination I desired with this collection.
I love using a background cut file to create an interesting feature on a page. I used the cut file here in my store A Piece of Cake Designs and cut it on plain white card stock with the intention of backing it with the patterned papers I had chosen. I love the way these papers and the plain card stock help to make this layout really pop.
Here is a close up look of the cut file backed with the patterned paper:
I used a few layers to mat the photo. One of those being the Captain vellum in the collection.
The cluster which contains part of the title: I love the layer a variety of materials, here I have layered paper, die cuts, chipboard and vellum.
