'HA' SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT

THIS LAYOUT IS FUN AND BRIGHT - AND A GOOD WAY TO USE ALPHAS IF YOU'RE INTO THAT SORT OF THING! I'M THE TYPE OF PERSON WHERE I FALL IN LOVE WITH AN ALPHA - GO GUNG-HO AND START USING IT ONLY TO REALIZE THERE AREN'T ENOUGH VOWELS IN THE SET TO SPELL EVERYTHING I WANT ON A SECOND SPREAD, OR THIRD SPREAD AND THEN THE ALPHA SITS THERE, UNUSED FOREVER. WELL, I DEARLY LOVE THIS COLOR CAST DESIGNS ACRYLIC ALPHA AND I DIDN'T WANT IT TO END UP WITH THE SAME FATE SO I DECIDED TO USE MOST OF THE SET IN ONE FELL SWOOP! AND I THINK IT TURNED OUT PRETTY DARN GREAT. THE BRIGHT YELLOW BALANCES THE DOWN TO EARTH BLUES AND REDS AND THEN THERE'S LOTS OF WHITE SPACE TO LET IT BREATHE AND BE THE STAR OF THE SHOW.

TO ADHERE THEM I SIMPLY DRY PLACED THEM ON MY SPREAD UNTIL I WAS HAPPY WITH THE ARRANGEMENT AND THEN ROLLED THE BACKS OF EACH LETTER WITH TOMBOW PERMANENT ADHESIVE AND STUCK THEM IN PLACE ONE BY ONE - A LITTLE BIT TEDIOUS BUT WELL WORTH IT!

FOR THE LAYERED SIDE PANELS I SIMPLY GRABBED SOME PATTERNED PAPER FROM MY SAVANNAH STUDIO CALICO KIT  AND TRIMMED IT INTO STRIPS OF VARIOUS WIDTHS AND LENGTHS. I THEN STAGGERED THEM THROUGHOUT THE LINE. I THINK THIS PART OF THE SPREAD REALLY HELPS TO BALANCE THE PHOTO AND DRAW YOUR EYE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PAGE.

TO FINISH OFF THE SPREAD I GRABBED SOME ENAMEL DOTS AND STARS IN YELLOW AND SCATTERED THEM AROUND THE PAGE AND ADDED THIS 'YES' STICKER TO THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER TO HELP BALANCE THE YELLOW THROUGHOUT.
