How-to | create a layout step by step

Today's how-to comes from Ebony...

Follow along step by step to create a gorgeous layout featuring your favourite portrait pic.

Step 1: Cut between 10 and 12 strips of various patterned papers found in the Giselle kit. Cut them to varied lengths and widths and adhere to a piece of cardstock as shown.

Step 2: Add in some of the journalling tags and bingo card.
Step 3 : Add in a 4x6 inch photo and then a title and journalling.

Step 4: Take an inside piece from one of your pink paislee artisian frames and cut in half. Paint them two different colors. Add some more strips of papers to the top of your layout and the bottom right hand side. I have also used some torn up journalling cards also found in the kit. Once the painted frames are dry adhere them also as shown.

Step 5: Add in some flowers and some buttons, add in some doodling around the edges of your papers and photo and you are done!
...and here's the end result! Gorgeous layout Ebony. Thank you for sharing how to create a layout in your style.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a sketch contest and giveaway!

Cheers, Lis.
