Our 5th design team assigment for Craft Warehouse was using Echo Parks Note To Self line. Now, this is not a line that I would likely buy, but I loved playing with this paper.
The first layout we were required to use the view finder paper in some way, a vinyl rub on and the wood vaneer shapes. I originally thought to make a flower out of the view finders but ended up in a different direction and just layered them with other papers. I chose the blue card stock for the base because it added some color and made everything else stand out. The key is the vinyl rub on that I placed on a sticker and attached with a pop up adhesive. I also used pop up adhesive on part of the journaling, I actually messed up on one of the words and tada a happy accident.
I had some pictures from a trip to the coast that I would work nicely with this line. So for the second layout I really wanted to create the look of waves and the beach with the paper. One of the patterns was a corkboard so I used that for the sand and layered the blue waves above it. I traced a small plate on a scratch piece of paper to get the pattern for the wave. I created a fringed sun using one of the view finder pieces and spraying with glimmer mist. The flowers are stickers but I adhered with pop up adhesive. For the title area I tried to include a variety of pieces so I took the sticker that said "together time" and cut it in half so I could rearange the words. And I wanted to incorporate the piece that listed the month and date on it so I placed it right below the title.
The center photo is a pocket with a sentiment tucked in it.
