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. :)
