Hey everyone! It’s Anna here, sharing this monochromatic layout with you today, featuring the Legendary collection. Two months ago my sister had a baby boy, and we are very happy because is the first boy in the family!! My parents have two girls (me and my little sister) and I also have two daughters. So, at last, we can say “hello boy!”. For this layout, I was inspired by the stars in the picture.
First, I used the distress oxide inks and the plastic technique to make my background in a watercolor 12×12 sheet. I did it with different shades of blue and also add some splatters. I wanted it to look like a sky.
I spread some stars diagonally, from top to bottom of the page. I took them from the Die Cut Ephemera, the Clear Stickers, and also fussy cut some stars from the All Star paper. I put foam dots behind a few stars to add more dimension. In between the stars, I also glued some enamel dots.
On top of the page, I stacked two strips from the Offbeat and Epic Tales papers. I cut the Offbeat paper a little bit crooked, and I used a stamp with white ink to simulate a machine stitching. It’s subtle but I think it gives an extra touch (and I didn’t feel like taking out the sewing machine).
For my title, I used two words from the Die Cut Titles which I raised with foam dots and a phrase from the Clear Stickers. I embellished it with a die cut star and a flair button that matched perfectly with the color and the stars. I don’t usually write journaling on my layouts, but this time I did it. Below it, I placed another die cut that says “legendary”.
With the All Star paper I matted my picture. Behind it, I put some tissue paper too and foam to raise it up. Two more die cuts and another one for layering, and that’s it!!
Once in a while I enjoy making a monochromatic layout, it’s kinda challenging for me. I hope you like it and thank you so much for stopping by today!
