My creative tips are:
– First I select my colors. I always try to select just a few colors plus black & whithe (for this page I chose reds and greens). I think it is easier to keep an harmony.
– If my photos don’t match my papers, I use a black & white photo.
– I love fussy cutting elements from patterned papers to recreate a different look and to use as embellishments.
– I also love using dies to create extra embellishments. My favorites are all kinds of foliage and leaves.
– If you don’t have the apporpriate letters, alphabets to write text & words, use your typewriter.
I hope you will find these tips helpful. 🙂
