San Francisco

Today I wanted to give you a peek at a layout I made for Crate Paper using their Little Boy Blue Collection. I love the blues, yellows, and green from this collection, and how easily the papers can be used on travel-themed layout. 

Recently, we visited San Francisco because Eric had a job interview there. We fell in love with the Bay area and the huge city. There was so much character and charm and things to see.

For this layout I wanted to do color blocking and use the bright primary colors from the collection to add interest. Once I got the paper cut to my liking I felt it needed some zig-zag stitching to give it some detail and continuity. The stickers I popped up with adhesive tape to make them stand out from the bright bold background papers.

Some Details:

I hope this layout inspires you to use paper lines in a different way than they were first intended.

Thanks for coming by today!
