Enjoy the Ride

Hello hello, Happy Monday!

I had a very busy weekend and did not have much time to scrapbook, but I did manage to get a layout done. This layout is for Let's Get Sketchy Week 3 Sketch Challenge (Week 4 Challenge is up too!), which is another fun sketch to work with, and I had fun picking the patterned papers for this layout. I posted my initial picks on my Instagram, drop by to see what I picked!

I used a lot of stars and hearts and cameras accent on this page, I hope it's not too overwhelming. I love love love the background paper! Happy that I could use it for one of my favorite photos.

Excuse the blurry pic, didn't realize until I uploaded onto the blog *cry*

For this layout, I used a sticker accent instead of letter stickers for the title. I went through my stash and couldn't find any letter stickers that 'fits' this layout. Luckily I took out all travel-themed elements and found this sticker accent by Echo Park.

Love the arrow and the loops!

I knew I wanted to use blue and orange for this layout, so I got a chance to use this lovely camera accent patterned paper by Becky Higgins. I received my first OHDEERME kit, and I love love love everything in it, so I included some of the embellishments on this page.

Resin Heart + Wood Ticket = Love

A big camera die cut on top of the camera accent patterned paper

I punched three heart-shaped from my favorite Tiny Love patterned paper and stacked them up to make the heart accent beside the title. Then, instead of tossing that piece of punched paper away, I decided to use it as the second cluster for this layout. I repeated the elements I used on the main cluster, which are camera, stars and Hello in blue background (which is quite hidden behind the photo).

Stars and hearts and cameras, oh my!

p/s: I am still experimenting on how to capture the photograph of my layouts like a pro. I shot these in my room under fluorescent light, so I set the Exposure Compensation to 2.0, using Aperture Priority Mode with low Aperture value at 2.5. I think this set of photos is a bit too bright? Any advice are welcomed!
