I have another Echo Park mini-theme layout to share with you today; this one is all about the Great Outdoors! I personally don't do much camping; my husband says that my idea of roughing it is a hotel without room service. He is just joking (I think!), but he has a bit of a point... so if you're like me you may wonder what use you may have for a "camping" kit. Well, nicely enough, there are only a couple of elements that are specific to camping, and the pattern paper that has tents on it has plenty of other things on it as well to make it perfectly suitable for general outdoor pictures like hiking, picnics, and more. Here's the first thing I've done with it:
These pictures are from a field trip to a local nature center. The papers in this kit fit perfectly! I cut one of the blocks from the Journaling paper to use as a title, and added a sticker element as a subtitle. I used some more sticker elements and added them to some journaling circles - you can use punches or a cutting machine for the journaling shapes.
|I used one circle to note the event and year.|
|I used another to point out how excited my daughter was to be there.|
|And I used a third, completing a visual triangle, to add a fun little image.|
One little tip to note: one of the ricrac strips I added was a little bulky (the one at the top), so I popped up my smaller photos over it with foam adhesive so they didn't look lumpy. To balance things out, I also popped up the small photo at the bottom right.
You can make a similar layout with just a few items:
