Happy Tuesday! Today's tutorial is all about giving your layouts a little boost -- literally -- and then making the most of the extra space.
I began by using my circle cutter to trim a series of circles on a sheet of Boarding Pass Tokyo paper.
I trimmed an extra circle in the middle of a sheet of scrap paper, so that I could place it over the circles on my layout and stamp images easily.
After adding stamped images from the Boarding Pass and Road Map lines to the layout, I created homes for accents within the negative spaces, using Boarding Pass Word Stickers, Label Stickers, Rubber Charms, Tin Pins, Rub-Ons, Chip Shapes, and more.
Then I added a heckuva lot of adhesive dots to the back of the patterned paper. The most important places are those where sagging might occur, so I added extra dots near the edges of the circles.
This photo was taken early in the process. A few minutes later, there were adhesive dots all over the back of the paper. I then flipped over the paper and placed it carefully over the cardstock beneath.
Once the whole page had been given a boost, there was now room for an extra layer of accents, so I added a few more:
I love adding a bit of dimension to my layouts, and this is an approach I will most definitely be trying again! If you happen to be working on any projects that give a little "boost" to your October Afternoon products, be sure to share them in the OA Flickr gallery. We'd love to see them!
