Have you ever tried layering and focusing on one corner at the same time? That's my challenge today!
Layering has always been one of my favorite "techniques" for years - when I was doing Mixed Media, layering was the key.
Whether you want to layer paper, fabric, vellum, stickers, photo frames, photos, the key is to be able to mix and match the patterns - try to mix stripes with dots and flowers, while the colors suit each other well (if you don't want to make "mistakes", feel free to use the papers from the same paper line).
Swagger Dependable paper / Swagger Powerful paper / Swagger Strips paper / Park Bench Paddle Boat paper / Trendsetter Strips paper / Park Bench Banner die-cuts / Swagger Ephemera Pack / Trendsetter Clips / Down by The Shore rubons / Etcetera Decorative Tags / Trendsetter Label Stickers / Artist's Edition 3x3 Shape Stencils / Park Bench Stickers Fundamentals
I decided to gather all my left over papers and embellishments on the left top corner of my background, my title is placed at its opposite.
I first glued my photo on a turquoise paper so that it can pop off my background.
Then I glued them two on another piece of paper, slightly bigger.
I added a few tags and die-cuts here and there.
Be sure to also layer colors to get more contrast!
My title here was made by cutting kraft cardstock wiht my Silhouette, plus some yellow stickers to contrast on the background.
Never glue the bottom of your picture - this will allow you to place whatever item/embellishments beneath your photo!
To finish and add a last layering technique finition here, grab your sewing machine and sew through all of your layers to attach them together!
