Inspired by Paper – video included

Welcome Daisy family!  Wendy here today to share a page and YouTube I was inspired to create from the lovely 12×12 exclusive papers.  Do you ever get stumped with the 12×12 papers that already have a scene created on them?  How do you go about telling your story when the page already tells a story?  Well, join me as I share some tips on making your paper work for you!

On this paper, the wave design filled the paper and it was gorgeous, but I wanted to tell my story…  So I like to make my paper work for me, to do that I chose some pictures that fit the theme of the paper and then I built my pictures into the paper.  I didn’t fight the waves, instead I joined in!  I chose my color palette from what was already established and I chose to nestle my photo block into the less decorated area of the page.  This allowed the waves to wash over my pictures and give a pleasing flow to the page.

To further the seamless transition from what I had built to the page, I used the exclusive ink pad and stencil to add in the seaweed on and around my photo block.

Some splatters with the spray ink and the addition of the sequins and enamel dots gave the tangible feel of the spray on your face from the waves.

I chose to really make my title pop out of the page by totally ignoring the color/feel of the paper and I brought in a leftover title from May’s kit.

You can watch my process as I begin the page with my “photo block” and build up the elements until I have completed my page!

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you are inspired to make your paper work for you!
