Hi friends! Heather Leopard guesting here and I am back today to share a layout with you that's all about LAYERING!
First, I have a question for you...do you suffer from bed head or know someone who does? My littlest suffers from it in the worst way. She goes to bed a beauty queen and when she wakes up it's as if her hair got in a terrible fight. I snapped this photo of her the other morning, with her hair in a more mild state but still a mess.
With her hair a tangled mess, I thought it only fitting to include lots of layers on this layout. How about we walk through the process and do a little "how-to" for creating this layout?
Step 1: Choose two busy patterns, one tone on tone pattern paper and white cardstock.
Step 2: Choose 2 - 3 Memory Mix Cards or additional pattern papers, cut down to 2x2 and 3x3.
Step 3: Cut one sheet of pattern paper to 4"x12". Adhere to the left side of your white cardstock.
Step 4: Cut 2 strips of your tone on tone paper (mine is the woodgrain pictured above). One strip is 1"x12" and the 2nd is 1.25"x12". Adhere over the edge of the pattern paper and white cardstock. I love that you can see the layers ever so subtly here.
Step 5: Add a 1/4" strip of white cardstock to the left of the woodgrain. Adhere a sticker strip on top of the white cardstock. I did this to help make the sticker "pop" on the pattern paper.
Step 6: Stitch the edges of the sticker and woodgrain to the paper.
Step 7: Cut a 6"x6" square from your 2nd pattern paper. Distress the edges of the paper. Layer it over the Memory Cards. I left a pocket for two of my cards at the top so I could add additional journaling.
Step 8: Print a 4"x4" photo and add a frame around it. Adhere to the page and embellish. The "drama" card was only fitting for the drama that pursues during the detangling process. I have learned that braiding the hair at night lessens the amount but does not eliminate bed head and makes the hair nice and wavy in the morning.
Step 9: Add a vertical title along the border. I chose a silly song my mom introduced me to as the title for my page
Step 10: Add journaling, stamping and additional embellishments.
So that's my process for creating this page documenting a small part of our morning routine. I hope it inspires you to add different types of layers to your next layout. I'll be back next week with a fun way to create a unique background by mixing and matching various patterns so STAY TUNED!
