Every now and then, I like to use strips of paper to make up the bulk of the page. (When I make these pages, I call myself a stripper. Heh.) I did that with the following layout. I had an 8x12 photo, so I only had some narrow space at the top and bottom of the page, so I dug through my strips and picked them in three hues for contrast: blues, neutrals, and brights.
Blues alone were too blah, so I had to pick some colors for contrast.
And here's my final page:
After I selected my strips, I went through my stickers to find colors and shapes that would match and contrast. Some I stitched down for interest and practicality (some of my stickers only stick with hesitance).
Thank you for visiting! I will be sharing a couple pages I made recently with what I call bulletin-board scrapbooking later this week.
