Inspired by Quilts
This is my second layout using the Citrus Twist April Add-On kit. Inspired by the mixing and matching of fabric patterns in a quilting book I'm reading, I start by filling half the page diagonally with a cascade of overlapping triangles.
My title, journalling and photo are grouped together on the other half of the page. I wove a circle garland around a softly fluttering banner and anchored the end with a flair button. This forms the base of a visual triangle with it's apex being the pink and red brads. It brings the two halves of the page together and introduces a softening element against the straight lines and hard angles.
Despite sharing the same Glitz Design Uncharted Waters supplies the mood of this page is very different that of my Feeling Playful layout. Although there is an emphasis here on the different shades of blues, I've been much more adventurous in my colour palette and in the scattering of colour across the page.
I have just tiny bits of the Glitz Design Damask paper left over after my two layouts and decide to try making something unexpected with them. Hope you'll come back on Monday when I'll share the tutorial for a fun fashion accessory.
Linking up to these parties.
