Step-by-Step Post

Happy 2023!!  Can y’all believe it’s the start to a new year?  Have y’all been playing along with Month of Challenges at The Lilypad?  I’m trying to complete as many layouts as I can, so I thought I’d show you one of my pages in this Step-by-Step blog post.  When I saw Day 9’s challenge TravelRelated, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  We just took a trip to Port Aransas, and I wanted to start my album with the car ride down.  First, because the requirement was one large photo, I searched for all the large photo templates in Liz’s store.  I found one in the GrandMotif set which was perfect, so I clipped my photo to the photo spot:

Next, I knew that I needed to make the photo black and white since all the different colors in the photo were giving me a headache.  I selected the photo and then clicked on gradient map>basic>black / white to get this look:

I realized I had to remove the bottom left cluster which hid my face, so I did that AND I added a cluster from Liz’s Edge Templates 3 set.  I can’t tell you how much I love her edge clusters since they take away all the hard work and make it simple for me to create a great edge piece!  This is what I ended up with after placing my cluster on my layout:

Finally, I got to play!  I started by clipping some papers from Just Jaimee's Road Trip - Storyteller July 2018 add on kit to the banner like this:

Then I added my final papers, elements, and journaling.  Because the challenge needed a journal card to meet the requirements, I tucked a small one as well into my top right cluster:

That’s it!  One layout done and one MOC challenge completed in less than 30 minutes thanks to Liz’s GrandMotif & Edge Templates 3 sets. I hope you enjoyed this post and can’t wait to see you next month!
