LETS GO FLY A KITE - April 30, 2010 - South Padre Island, Texas

JOURNALING: Ted gets a kite flying lesson from Matt. 

SUPPLIES USED: Font: Lucida Calligraphy, Roam papers by K&Co, K&Company Handmade paper ribbon (buttons), File folder svg shape, Cricut Expression, Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) software

TECHNIQUE TIP:  Probably my most common comment on scrapbook page layout design is that I hate to see white edges on anything.  You will see that about 95% of the edges of my photos, embellishments and papers have been either inked or painted to give them some dimension and to get rid of those white edges.  In this layout I decided that I didn't want to mat my smaller photos, but a liberal coating of dark brown paint gave them a faux matting and also got rid of those dreadful white edges.  In this example I used a large foam paint brush and dabbed paint all around the edges to soften the hard lines of this linear layout and add some interesting texture.
