Hey everyone, Raquel here today sharing with you a new layout using the bright and fun Birthday Bash collection. This week on the blog you will be seeing lots of layouts, projects, and cards following the theme ‘at an angle’.
For today’s post I decided to create a layout ‘at an angle’. In July it was my little man’s second birthday, the birthday bash release was perfect timing for me to document this event. The collection itself is quite gender neutral, it contains a multitude of bright colours that will work for either boys or girls.
To work this page ‘at an angle’ I have created two main elements to my page, the photo mat in 4×6″ size and the large title is also broken into 4×6″ size. I have added them to the page both on the same angle.
I also added my journaling on an angle below the title!
I wanted the photo to be a focus of the page. I printed it in black & white as it was busy in terms of the original colour. As always, I love a white border. This neutral border allows me to mat my photo in any kind of patterned paper I choose, busy or plain, as the white border acts as a breaker between the photo and the patterns on the paper.
As a fun interactive element I placed one of the party hats on his head.
The large chipboard letter stickers are huge in size in comparison to a regular packet of Thickers. I really wanted to be able to add a fun title to the page using them. I broke the title into three lines as there are 9 letters in the word ‘celebrate’. To secure the alphas to the page I added some machine stitching.
To embellish the page I added a cluster to the bottom left of the photo. This is made up of fussy cut present and balloons, die cuts, and the number “2” from the chipboard pack.
I also cut a few little party whistles out to add as a small embellishment which added a fun touch to the page.
To continue with the angle theme and add some subtle texture to the page, I machine stitched some straight lines along the top and bottom of the photo area. I love the texture it adds. To finish off the layout I added a few sprinkles to the page by cutting out the small rectangular pieces from one of the patterned papers. It really helps the layout to pop!
I hope this page has inspired you today. Make sure you check back in tomorrow for an ‘at an angle’ tutorial!
