While on vacation we went walking on the trails at the Nature Conservancy of South Meadows in Cape May. It is near Sunset Beach. They have beautiful trails that you can walk on that go out through the marshes on the coast.
My background is a dark olive green textured piece of cardstock measuring 12" by 12". My accent background paper is a piece of printed palm tree scrapbooking paper which I cut down to measure 11" by 11" in size. I used a glue stick and placed it over the top of the dark olive green cardstock. To frame it up, I used chocolate brown satin ribbon measure 1/8" wide by 11" long. I used a liquid glue pen and glued the ribbon around all 4 edges.
I cropped down each of the two photos a little bit but kept them in a rectangular shape. I matted them onto dark olive green cardstock, leaving a 1/4" border around each photo. You can look at the photo for placement. I accented the left side of this photo strip with a sand dollar cardstock 3-dimensional sticker. I used a foam dot to add dimension.
I am pretty pleased with the layout for the simple fact that I used items & embellishments that I already have on hand. I am on a mission to use up the scrapbooking supplies that I have (which are massive) before I go out and buy anything new. I am hoping I can stick to the plan!
