I used some of the pictures I took at the beach on Saturday to make a two-page layout using BasicGrey’s Ambrosia collection. I don’t typically do multi-photo, two-page layouts so this was a bit of challenge for me. Normally I don’t spend more than 20 minutes per layout. This one took me a little over an hour!
I like that the patterned paper picks up the colors in the lifeguard stand of the photo on the bottom right, but that it provides a lot of contrast for the blues and beiges of all the photos.
I’m not really happy with the placement of that chipboard element at the top of the page. I accidentally touched it to the page after removing the backing, and then I couldn’t get it off without ripping the paper. Those suckers are sticky! I do love that chipboard piece right above the word “beach”; I think it gives that swirly feeling of the waves.
I love the Ambrosia line and I haven’t really used it much since I got it, so I’m glad I got to put it to use. Although this isn’t my usual style, I kind of like it.
