Hey CP Addicts! Sophie here with you today to share my love of trends!
I'm sure you are all just like me on the hunt for new trends, whether for clothes or home..and maybe for your scrapbook layouts, too!
I love new trends, but what I love even more is to watch how they evolve over time! Recently, I noticed that designers and artists alike are taking heart of the "tilt" look via layouts, adverts and posters: titled designs create eye catching pieces art and they flourish on Pinterest. They also exhibit motion and energy, which is attractive in it's own right.
So, using some of my favorite Crate Paper items from the Spring release, I created for you a simple card and layout using the infamous "tilted" design.
For the layout, I used a center line as my starting point: photos, title and embellishments are all gathered around this line and are created solely from three pieces of The Pier patterned papers.
**Tip: I used a visual triangle on this layout for photos and colors, as well as embellishment placement. When coordinated with the titled design, it creates a simple, yet graphic look.
I chose to add small bits of angled papers in the corners of my page to frame the overall design and a darker color background to help my photos stand-out (another fab trend - dark backgrounds!)
**Tip: Make sure you use a ruler to align the paper and photos.
This layout is the perfect example of how Crate Paper collections work seamlessly together: I used embellishments from Party Day, Maggie Holmes and The Pier and layered them to create accents on my page related to my "nature" theme.
Even my journaling is tilted. The journaling and the "bird" tag are both cut on the sides so it looks as if the layout is "to be continued" outside the frame of the 12 x 12 sheet. I love that feeling of space it provides the design.
Don't you think the tilt creates a dynamic and interesting look?
I used the same idea for the card using Party Day tags and chipboard accents, as well as a piece of patterned paper from The Pier.
Well, I hope you are now inspired to give these angled designs a try! We will be on the lookout for you tilted layouts!
Thank-you for visiting and reading! See you soon!
