I don't often make double page layouts, but a lot of customers have been talking about how that's mostly what they create at home so I thought I'd try my hand at one for an upcoming class using KaiserCraft Art of Life and Graphic 45 chipboard flowers to add spots of color to the otherwise neutral paper. I also decided to toss in some chevron washi from We R Memory Keepers.
So because it is hard to see all those details on the two page photo, here are close ups of each side of the spread: left and then right.
Oh the fussy cutting on this one - it is actually the most time consuming aspect of the entire layout. I'm sure explaining how to sew on the paper and make that crinkle edge will be new for some of my class but it soooo makes the page in my opinion.
The right side came together faster since it's really just a line of photos with a couple of flowers. And I had to include that one photo of my bestie who'd flown in after her own graduation to be with my family at mine before we took a little road trip to the coast.
I hadn't used those Graphic 45 flowers before, when I looked at the packs I'd always assumed they were stickers. Turns out they are double sided cardstock! The pack had two different flower types and I only used one type, the more daisy types. I inked and curled the edges with my fingers to give them a little depth. A few flowers are popped up with foam adhesive to add extra dimension.
