If you follow the progress on my album, then you know I like to play with different looks every week; I can't help it. This week: Bright and bold! This was a fun one. Keep an eye out for a free download and video tutorial at the bottom of this post. Here we go...(Click on images to enlarge.)
I played around with black and white patterns with pops of neon pink and yellow. I added swashes of color in Photoshop using the paintbrush tool with the opacity knocked down a tad to see through it.
All of the type is Bebas Neue, a sans serif classic. You can download it for free here.
This was my fortune from Friday night's dinner. I'll take it! Chevron paper from Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook colection.
I liked the image of the water noodles as a vertical so I printed it out at 6x8 and divided it up to fit the pockets. I grabbed the photo of my nieces from my sister's Facebook page. (With her permission!) I want to try to include more photos from other people from time to time like this. All part of our story!
I made these silhouette cards to add a pop of color. Totally in love with them! I thought including the Queen's Diamond Jubilee would be a nice world event marker for future generations that may look at this album.
This picture of Maggie. I mean really. I took a bunch of shots of the girls playing with water guns at Walmart and it wasn't until I got home when I saw this face. The personality on this one, look out! I had to showcase it. This is an 8x8 page protector.
On the backside of the 8x8 protector I used some notes from Jim. Almost since they were born, he writes a paragraph for the girls every day. Notes on what we're doing, what they're saying, etc. Pretty awesome.
