Layouts, layouts, layouts…you can’t really get enough layout ideas for the basic 12×12 layout! Here’s another fabulous layout from Francine using the Little Black Dress October Romance at Dusk kit:
This is Francine’s 12×12 Challenge Layout.
Francine’s “big picture” is always pleasurable. The overall look of the page always seems to be pleasing to the eye. She may just have a knack for placement, but if you’d like to get a little of that in your own layouts…try laying things out prior to adhering them. Or you can get adventurous…you can buy one of the “undo” products that allow you to adhere to the page and then change your mind and “undo” what you’ve already glued!
I love how Francine placed the Glitz Design Vintage Wings butterfly rubon right on top of her fantastic layering of the black/white tissue and the yellow/lace trim. The messy pleats in the tissue paper give it an extra bit of dimension, too.
In this close up you can see some of Francine’s journaling right on one of the stickers from the Glitz Design vintage journaling sticker pack. I love handwritten journaling. I think it makes it that much more personal!
Notice how Francine added Jenni Bowlin chalkboard tile alphas in the “midst” of the American Craft Thickers (black and glittery). It’s such a fun and clean look at the same time. And that’s kind of a difficult combo to achieve! My 2010 Challenge…by Francine!
