Thinking of You Layout

"I like to keep things very clean, simple, and minimal. This technique is especially effective when all you want to do is highlight a small detail or item in a photo. Here, I really wanted to highlight the stuffed animal, but still keep the surrounding elements in the photo to evoke calmness. The trick I usually use is to use pattern papers in the same color family but different tones to help highlight without overpowering the layout."

"I used the floral pattern paper and 'thinking of you' sticker from the Vanilla Sunshine collection which has some light blue tones to it. I also used the bright blue from Cheery Brights to create a banner which also had several tones of the turquoise in it. Lastly, to add to the calmness and highlight the bright colors from the photo further, I used a black cardstock for its background."
