Hi everyone! It’s Sue Plumb here to share my latest design team project with you featuring the awesome new ‘Legendary’ collection. For this layout I decided to document a photo of my three kids doing what they do best – being weirdos! (I wouldn’t have them any other way.) I also decided to work with a very limited colour palette – focusing on the black / blue / grey tones from the collection, as I thought it would work well with my black and white photo.
I began by creating a mixed media background on a sheet of white cardstock, using two blue inks to add some subtle colour to my page. I also added some stamping using black ink and a stamp with tiny stars. Once the background was completely dry I then moved on to adding some papery layers.
I first cut a piece of the star print pattern from the Offbeat paper into a vertical banner shape to act as the anchor point for my layers. Next, I created a mat for my photo using a piece of the Explorer paper and placed it on top of the banner with my photo stuck on top. I then added a couple of horizontal strips that I cut from the Explorer and Total Legend papers and tucked them in behind.
Above my photo I added some extra pieces of paper tucked in behind the top of the banner which were also cut from the Total Legend paper. I also added the circular piece that I fussy cut from the centre of the mandala in the middle of the Explorer paper.
I also added two words from the Die Cut Titles pack to form my title Hey Legends (I actually cut the “s” from another word to make the word Legends) and popped them up using some foam tape.
To the right of my photo I created a small cluster using the geo deer from the Die Cut Ephemera pack, with a small star on top (again using foam tape for dimension). Along the bottom edge of my photo I added the stay weird stay wonderful quote from the Epic Tales paper, with the go your own way quote from the Accessory Sticker sheet below it.
To finish off, I added some small black chevrons to the left of my photo from the Clear Sticker sheet; then a good scattering of stars from the Die Cut Ephemera pack. I am so happy with how this one came together and I absolutely love the colour combo of all those cool tones.
That’s all from me today – until next time, happy scrapping!
