Collection Disconnection | Little by Little #2 - Magic Adventure

Hey friends! Welcome back for the second installment of my Collection Disconnection series where I take one paper line (Shimelle Little by Little) and create several layouts with different themes and color schemes and techniques.

Today, my intention was to be inspired by the inspiration behind the collection - children's books. And I was inspired to tell a story about reading, but I also decided to show you how I tackle the idea of using a bold and bright patterned paper for the background of your layout.

I find that the best way to make sure your photos stand out while still letting your bold pattern shine is to break it up with a solid color. I tend to gravitate toward white and in this case, I used notebook paper.

I combined a few words from the Thickers set to create my title, "Magic Adventure". I like that the title is white and I think if it were a different color it would compete with the background paper.

I pulled elements from the die cuts and sticker sheets to lend to magical, fairytale, getting-lost-in-a- good-book, feel and finished with a little bit of gold mist because, gold=magic.

You can see how it all came together in the process video!
