Bushel and a Peck...

CHA 2016 Project 8 of 10

This is one of my favorite layouts that I created for CHA. I'm so excited to share it with you today!

What's black and white with pops of color all over?  This layout, that's what!  While I love the shapes of the Invisibles and how they can really dress up a project with the fun scallops, I focused more showing you how I've used it for the sole purpose as a fun see though pattern on your layout.

To create this layout, I thought about my title and photo first and determined how much space I would need to a long title with some larger alphas wrapped around each of the circles. I also had to take into account that I would need to trim the white background around the edges so it would fit inside the black and white pattern paper border. Once I had those measurements, I cut three different sized circles using my die cut machine and then stitched the Invisibles to the back of the cuts. The title is a combo of Tiny Text alphas, letters from the chipboard icons and sticker alphas.  By mixing my alphas, I was able to fit a rather long quote on the page without overwhelming the layout and it really added some nice variety to make it more pleasing to the eye.  One thing I love so much about the Tiny Text Alphas is that you can add a longer title, you can add a sub-title or you can even use it in your journaling.

Absolutely awesome layout! I have some of the Invisibles and drew a blank on how to use them. Now I need some Tiny Text alphas!
