Hillsborough State Park Layout for THE CUTTING CAFE
Oh double pager! How I have missed you! Love matching between the two pages so they "jive" yet look different.
Of course the key to this is similar elements. I cut quite a few of these Layered Flowers from THE CUTTING CAFE to help with the look. Bright and sunny to contrast against my photos! I actually cut them out of cream colored paper so I could ink them up any which way I wanted. These got a yellow and pink swipe from a stamp pad and a quick spritz of some clear spray.
Really really really enjoyed this park in Florida! I saw a few things there that I have never experienced in real life!
You might be able to see the roots growing up on the bank of the river from the trees in the big photo I used on this layout. I think they are cypress trees and those are called their knees! I think they pop up like that to get a little breath of air! ;-)
Here is a side view so you can see that these flowers are pretty flat and nice to use for layouts. Sometimes I get a wee bit crazy and I can't actually fit my pages into a scrapbook due to their depth!
And one more close up so you can see how I slide in some of the tickets and whatnot we had from the day into the side. For one thing, it uses up a ticket that normally would get tossed AND, I don't have to write down a date!
I don't have any journalling on this page, but there is another one I intend to do that will follow in my book that will cover that.
