Travel Layout by Zsoka Marko

Wednesday, November 4, 2020

   Hi there friends, Zsoka Marko today to share my newest layout I've created for the Paige Evans Design Team. I've worked with the awesome Go the Scenic Route collection! There were two things I wanted to use on this layout: Paper 6 with all the travel related icons and the Foam Thickers.

I started out by fussy cutting lots of icons from Paper 6 - obviously you could do this with a PixScan mat, but I have no idea where mine is, so I thought instead of spending time on finding it, I'd just watch a movie and fussy cut them :). This was actually the most time-consuming part of the whole layout; the rest is super quick and simple. Well, except the adhering of these pieces, of course, that takes some time too.

What I wanted to do originally is have the icons just like they are now, with a white circle in the middle, in which I was going to add my title. But I couldn't figure out a good place for my photos, so I scratched that. Also, my title didn't fit inside the circle. Oh dear. On to the next idea! This time I put my photos inside the circle and I lined up my title with the circle - but the last word just wouldn't fit. Sheesh. I'm really stubborn though and I was not going to give up on that title! So eventually, instead of using the alphas for the last word, I just typed it up and added it between the first and last words of the title - I was thinking, this way one can actually tell where the title starts! Before I glued down the typed-up word though, I stitched down the letters using my sewing machine.

Then I arranged all my fussy cut icons and adhered them down with foam tape for dimension, texture, and interest. I splattered white acrylic paint on the background. I then added my photos, which has some tissue paper layered behind them, as always. Since my page is already super busy, I didn't add many embellishments, just a few die cuts for a bit of color, a Puffy Phrase Sticker, and a Flag Paperclip. Once everything was in place, I wrote my journaling.

That's it! Very simple, but I love the colorful result! I have a process video for this layout as well if you're interested! Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I could inspire you in one way or another. Have a wonderful day and see you next time!
