Photo Op {Elle's Studio Layout}

Hello everyone! I have a layout to share using the NEW Documented exclusive products from Elle's Studio!

To create this layout, I started with the Documented journaling cards. I particularly loved the 4"x6" chevron pattern, so I used two of them across the page to create a patterned paper. I  added other strips of patterned paper to the top of the page, and then sewed them all down. I stamped across the rest of the page with the Documented stamp to create a textured looking background.

Next, I added my photo and used it to anchor a cluster of phrases that applied to the layout! I especially love the acrylic world and the "Good Times" which was cut from a Documented journaling card.

To title my page, I used the Marie Alphabet Stamp. I am actually quite terrible at stamping, To remedy this, I often use black ink so that I can color in any inperfections with a pen. It's a great tip to make your stamping look perfect! I place my layout onto a piece of craft foam (like the green one in the picture) before I stamp it. If I'm coloring in the image, I leave the foam under the layout. It makes the coloring easier and smoother!

There you have it! Thanks for joining us today, and don't forget to stop by the shop to check out the new Documented products!
