Journey - Quick Quotes
I'm sharing a layout that I created with the gorgeous Stowaway collection for Quick Quotes today. I love the beach! The blues, browns and oranges in this collection really help to highlight the colors in my photo. I used a sheet of the Stowaway 400 for the base of my layout. All the other papers on this page are from the 6x6 Stowaway Paper Pad.
The small "Paradise Found" piece was cut from a piece of 6x6 patterned paper and is the perfect size to tuck into my embellishment cluster. I added some fishing net and cheesecloth to this page to help play up the beach theme. I like to secure items like this to my layouts with some hidden stitching.
I created the flowers for this page with a favorite die, cardstock from the 6x6 Stowaway Paper Pad and several colors of PowderPuff Chalk Ink. The cardstock is sturdy, which makes cutting and shaping flowers like this a breeze!
I added a lot of dimensional layers to this page and I needed a way to add a title to my layout. I chose one of the Stowaway Chipboard Die-Cuts for its strength. I secured the die-cut to my layout with adhesive foam so it would sit above the netting. This title piece is strong enough to hold shape without bending or warping!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
