Teresa Collins-Something Wonderful Layout

I am playing with my new papers from the Something Wonderful Teresa Collins line. I love the crisp feel to this line. Sometimes I can't get enough of the vintage mood of papers and then other times, I want sharpness. Funny how that goes.

I wanted to do a layout with the photo smack dab in the center with very few embellishment. I wanted to use  the color black as a high contrast element. The photo is pop dotted over the vellum. The vellum is embossed with the Teresa Collins triangle embossing folder. The title of the layout is "love & life" and is low key in comparison to some of my typical layouts. I contemplated adding some black ink sprinkles or outlining some more triangles on the background paper, but decided against it. I wanted to keep the layout crisp.

I am not happy with my black journal label. If I was a perfectionist, I would pull the main center up and re-stick to another background sheet. Well, I lie. I did not do this because I did not have another sheet of the triangle paper. I originally had written my sentiments directly on the paper and just did not like my writing. So I covered it up with a chalk label and washi tape. I don't like how heavy that part of the layout became. But it will live this way as I am moving on. :) 

Supplies Used
Teresa Collins Something Wonderful Papers and Memorabilia chipboard and stickers
Maggie Holmes fabric frame
Fancy Pants Chalk label
Generic plain vellum embossed with triangles from Teresa Collins embossing folder

Happy Monday! ~Tisha


  1. What a great layout!

  2. Darling layout, Tisha and love the doodles you added!

  3. Such a fun, playful photo! Love the sweet layout!

  4. I think your layout is perfect.
    I like different styles as well.
    I have to applaud you for moving on ;)

  5. Sometimes I like vintage, sometimes I like modern... just depends on my mood! I don't think the black journaling spot is too dark... you have some dark elements on the left that help balance it out. :)

  6. This turned out fabulous!
    You would never know you struggled with it!

  7. You have enough things on the opposite side of the layout that it doesn't look heavy at all. I think it looks great and balanced. I would have had no idea that you struggled. It looks great!

  8. LOVE that photo!! I think this layout is so fun and energetic! :)

  9. Tisha your layout is just darling. What a fun picture.
