Open Sky - 12x12 Multi Photo Layout // Episode O - Summer of Stories

July 23, 2019

Hi friends and welcome back to a new week of Summer of Stories! I think this one is definitely one of my favorite layouts so far! I'm also so excited to be stretching my creative abilities by using Christmas supplies on non-Christmas layouts! Let's dive right in!

As you can tell from the layout, it is very blue-based. I find when I'm working with items that are in a theme, splitting them up from other colors can be helpful. You get to take that color and create your own layout color scheme! I talk about all of this in the video down below!

Although this is a bit of a stretch for Episode O, I went with Open Sky. Thinking outside of the box on this one and you can too! Check out the story list download down below for more inspiration!

As you can see on this page there are a ton of frames! I often don't reach for frames because I think they're always weird sizes I can never seem to fit on a photo! Here I use them to create bounding areas for embellishment clusters, journaling, and titles!

I really like how there are very few paper layers on this page. The colors of the photos are busy, so I wanted to keep things simple. The embellishment clusters, for the most part, are monochromatic with blues. This helps keep the focus on the photos themselves.

I did use several other bits from my stash to help drive home the non-Christmas theme. Don't be afraid to mix and match! Don't forget to check out the other episodes of Summer of Stories here on the blog. Thanks for stopping by!
