How was your weekend? I hope you had a good one! I had a creative one working with the June Cocoa Daisy kits. I can't wait to share these layouts with you! So until I can, I have a Just Nick and Fancy Pants layout to share with you instead! You find this up on the Just Nick blog today too!
This whole week a few of the other designers from Just Nick and I are sharing with you projects that we created using creative cut files from the Just Nick store and this collection from Fancy Pants, Attwell. It is such a fun, bright collection that is right up my alley with primary colors.
By now you know how I choose the colors in my layouts; they compliment the colors found within the photo with, typically, a bright pop of contrast color for a lift. That's just what I did here. While the collection has a lot more color to it, I stuck with the blues and blacks found in the swim suits these 13-14 year olds are wearing and then went with the pops of yellow for the contrast. Sure is some bright contrast, don't you think?
I love this background file from Just Nick called, Fancy Filigree. I love how backgrounds can enable to you to create your own personal touch. Like here where I cut a few of the "O"s in the background from the yellow patterned paper and rotated it then layered the white "X" from the background lace on top. Creates a kind of a flower or fancier filigree. There are a few of these scattered through out the layout creating a bit of movement that your eye follows.
Thanks for stopping in today. Be sure to check out the Just Nick blog all of this week for some more Fancy Pants inspiration using digital cut files!
