It's Step-by-Step Time

Happy May y’all!  CTM Robin here with another Step-by-Step blog post.  This month I thought I’d show you how I used a template from my favorite series, Artsy Journal Templates.  I chose the single photo template one from set 40:

Don’t you just love the fun shapes and gorgeous brushwork marks on this one?  After making my choice, I put my photo in there and then let the creative process begin!

I knew I loved the colors and mixed media feel in Rachel Jefferie’s and Lynn Grieveson’s Tempus kit, so I pulled some papers from that for my background and those bold shapes.

Next I added some elements and word strips.  I did tweak the shadows under my word strips to give it an illusion of being lifted on one side.

Finally, I added my title and journaling.  I love that Liz’s titles are editable so all I have to do is type my word in, rasterize the type, and then fill it with my paper choice.  It’s super easy to get a pretty title!

Y’all this layout was crazy quick to make thanks to Liz’s template.  It really was a “plug and play” kind of scrapping which gives me time to finish up all these end of the school year obligations.

I hope you enjoyed seeing how my page came together and will come back next month for another Step-by-Step post!
