Playing with Studio J, I'm finding more ways to be creative with Text Boxes! Plus the ability to adjust paper colors, crop stickease, rotate patterns, resize pictures and so much more has definitely made it fun to create these layouts below...ALL using the Fanfare Paper Collection.
I love having the flexibility to add any color embellishment to the layouts, allowing this Fanfare layout to include a little pink to match up with the photos.
Here I used the text boxes, stacked and at an angle to create my "cards" as an embellishment for this layout. The "diamonds" were small, red text boxes to make the embellishments a little more realistic.
The ability to change paper colors allowed this Fanfare Layout to sport a "pink" theme to make my daughters layout more her own. I also added a pink text box behind my title to give it some extra pop and to cover the pattern piece of paper that kind of hung out behind it.
Notice the cool swirls above this snow cone? These swirls were used in the pink layout above and the "Movin On Up" layout below as embellishments on the layouts (minus the cone) by cropping, then copying and rotating to give a nice embellishment to the pages.
The yellow photo mats on this layout were created using Text Boxes that were filled in with Sunny Yellow paper, allowing me to mat groups of photos together, vs matting individually.
