Wildthing... Layout Tutorial!

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

The collage is fast becoming a popular way of sharing a series of photos on social media which got me thinking about incorporating this trend into my scrapbooking. Today I'm going to share a layout I created using a collage of fun photos taken during my little man's morning tea time.

DESIGNED FOR | Jillibean Soup
PROJECT | Wildthing Layout Tutorial

I love how the story is conveyed in just pictures alone so journaling was able to be kept to a minimum.

TECHNIQUE | Another technique that is popular at the moment is the transparent embellishment filled with confetti... I couldn't resist at giving this a go and just love the effect it created.

TUTORIAL | For the full tutorial on this layout please visit the Jillibean Soup blog HERE.

Grandma's Lima Bean Soup - Vegetable Bouillon
Soup Staples II - Turquoise Salt
Alphabeans - Muchroom Gray/Gumbo Green/Tart Teal
