Happy Layout by Zsoka Marko

Friday, August 9, 2019

Hey there crafty friends, Zsoka Marko stopping by today with a new layout I've made for the Paige Evans Design Team. Still on my quest of finding new color combos in the awesome Horizon collection, I've come up with this yellow-blue-green combo!
I really wanted to use the frames from Paper 18 because they are absolutely gorgeous - I love the colors, the watercolor effect, the super fun definitions! Plus the colors I chose had the perfect theme for my photo! So I definitely wanted those to be visible. Keeping that in mind I started playing with arrangements - I'm not a fan of lineal things so a plain old grid just didn't cut it. I prefer a scattered, random but still organized look - if that makes ANY sense at all lol!

Once I kind of knew what I wanted, I started working on my background. Lately I've been making lots of cards using paper strips and I absolutely love them. I used to draw inspiration from my layouts to create cards, now it's the other way around! I love the color of the dark green paper but I found it too dark for a full background, so I just used it for the middle section of my page and I cut strips from other papers for both sides.

Then I glued down the frames and my photo in the middle and started embellishing. I pulled everything travel-related I could find (Chipboard StickersStickersTagsShaped Paper ClipsEphemera Die CutsCharms) but it wasn't enough, so I just went with colors. As in, I totally used embellies that make no sense (flowers and leaves?!) thematically, but I am not bothered by it. As long as the colors match, I'm OK. I also added some buttons from my stash. To finish off my page, I added a chipboard title and my journaling. That's it!

I hope you are inspired to try different color combos - big collections like Paige's are perfect for coming up with various, maybe a bit unusual combos. Don't be afraid to give it a try, what's the worst that can happen?! Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely day!
