|Place your ledger paper at the top of the pattern paper centered from left to right. |
As I started to work, I felt I needed some more color, so I added a piece of card stock to back the pattern paper.
|Next, add your photos. I placed a 4"x6" photo in the bottom right corner of the ledger paper, a 3"x4" photo at the top left corner and a small photo at the top right corner.|
Place the title at the bottom left corner of the ledger paper.
To add color to the bottom, I made two strands of banners. This is easily done by using a circle punch and folding the paper circles over a strand of embroidery floss and staple them. You can see how to do this on this post.
|Place your embellishments- I put a playing card (the 2 of hearts) peeking out behind the larger photo and overlapped it with a clock embellishment. I also placed a ticket on the upper left photo.|
|Finally, you'll want to add your journaling. The ledger paper provides a perfect journaling spot. I used handwriting and replaced a few words with letter stickers. This completes the simple version of the layout.|
|To take it up a notch, you can add a little color around the photos. I used these cards from 7 Gypsies, but you can get the same look by applying rub ons to card stock.|
|Here is a second example using ledger paper as the background.|
This post shows a layout using scrapbook paper that looks like ledger paper.
Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.
