Sisters Layout

Can this layout get any “happier?”  I just LOVE how all the pretty papers go together and set the mood for this amazing photo!

Sisters Layout by Susan Mast

I created two large vertical flags for this page by determining their width, finding the bottom center, adding a node and moving it upward.  Then I outlined my flag shapes to further define them on my page.  I added scallops to the left side of the red patterned paper to add interest.  The unexpected pop of blue on the upper left of my photo started as a bracket, that I re-created by deleting the bottom nodes and adding a straight bottom edge.  More scallops created a border to anchor my horizontal photograph.  Four circles folded over bakers twine form a simple banner in the upper right corner.  I mimicked the apple shape in the pink patterned paper, layered the apples and stitched them together for fun accents on my page.  Lastly, I cut my title “Sisters,” three times and stacked one on top of the next for additional dimension in my page title.  Buttons, a flower, a sticker and lace embellish my happy page.
