Retirement at Last! — By: LeNae Gerig
 

Supplies:


Designer Tip: Elegant swirls traced with a black pen add movement and bold contrast to this layout. LeNae selected a black photo mat and inked the edges of her papers with black ink to carry the contrast throughout the page.

Instructions

  1. Use the light blue textured paper as the background. Mat two horizontal photos (one above the other) on black glimmer paper with 1/4" of space between, then trim the mat to 1/4" around the edges. Glue the photos 2 1/4" from the left side of the page, centered between the top and bottom.
  2. Ink the edges of a 1 1/8"x10 1/2" strip of blue and white floral paper and glue it overlapping the right edge of the photos. Ink the edges of a 1 1/4"x8 1/2" strip of dark green fern paper and glue it overlapping the right edge of the floral strip. Ink the edges of a 7/8"x10 3/4" strip of light green floral paper and glue it overlapping the right edge of the fern strip.
  3. Use a black pen to trace swirl D from the template in each corner of the layout. Trace swirls C and G over the top of the paper strips, as shown.
  4. Layer a small blue silk flower on top of a large blue flower and attach the layered flowers at the top of the fern strip with a green brad in the center. Computer journal on blue and white floral paper and crop to three small strips. Ink the edges of each strip and glue over the paper strips on the right side of the page, under the silk flowers.
