This layout just grew on me, in an unexpected way. The evolution of the page:
  • I started with an idea to curl the paper around the photos.
  • How about misting 1/3 of the white cardstock for a coordinated background?
  • Couldn't get a pleasing placement, so I trimmed the cardstock and tucked it behind the curls.
  • Now I needed a new background paper. The stripes worked well to repeat the horizontal lines from the curls.
  • More texture needed to balance the curls. Pom-poms!
  • How to transition from the curls to the misted cardstock? Trusty SSFL edges on each side of the photos.
  • And between the cardstock and the stripes - distressing followed by soaking the edge in Cherry Metallic Mist.
  • Now the curls look "raw". Gathered all the red brads and lined them in a row to anchor those curls.
  • A couple of button flowers, title on top of scalloped journalling strips, tucked the name card of the bakery behind the strips, and ...
I think I'll consider the page DONE!
