Special Moments

I asked Bailey if she would mind if I scrapped the photo of Brady proposing.  She said that I could; the result is my layout on my post today.  The Chasing Dreams collection from Maggie Holmes is perfect for this photo and what I had in mind.  I wanted to use soft, pastel colors to match the softness of the colors in the photo.  I think I was able to achieve what I wanted with the color palette.

I printed the photo in 5×7.  I wanted a larger photo to really capture this moment.  I added some pops of black with the pastel colors, including the frame, title and photo mat.  This really draws the eye to key points on the layout.

The Silhouette cut file is the basis of the design and really does the work of the background.  Backing areas with patterned paper takes the colors across the layout.  The sewing just adds a little extra texture.

The Maggie Holmes ephemera is always my favorite…so pretty and just completes the look you are going for in your design.

Here are some photos and the process video.  Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
