Today is beach layout part two! For these layouts I used the Echo Park Paper collection called Paradise Beach. I thought the colors were fun, but also cool enough to bring the brightness of the picture's down a notch. I again used ribbon to enter into the 3 Girl Jam Challenge, and even though this is straight across the page, I liked the application much more than the last ribbon I used. I think it's because of all the other patterns I used as well...it just seems to blend more. The surf title was also attached with pop dots to give the page even more dimension.
I took a close up picture of the side detail so you can see the little embellishment. The paper collection had a ton of matching alphabets and I used two of them to make a little tag with the month and year the pictures were taken.
I did the second page with the same collection, but used some of the more toned down colors so that the pages matched, but also contrasted nicely if that makes any sense. I really liked knowing that everything I picked from the collection matched so I just needed to get creative. I think Echo Park in my favorite company right now, and I wish more of their items were sold locally.
What is your favorite paper company right now? Oh, and stay tuned for the bonus item I made with this collection...it came out really cute!
