The new stuff is in the shop and wow, I love it. The Escape pieces have a travel theme to them that is so perfect now that I have summer break on the brain. (One more week!!!) Anyway, we have not had any trips lately but I really wanted to use these new fun items, so I just needed to make them work.
I searched through my photos and found two that I already had printed but had done nothing with. Yippee! These are pictures of my daughter on an old bus at the train graveyard outside Atlanta. It was a cool day we spent exploring a piece of history with our cameras. The lighting in the bus was incredible. And it was really interesting to see my girls walking into a different time period. But anyway...
The pictures of her on this bus and the Escape tags and badges just fit together good enough. It was time to create.
I started by laying out tags through the center of my background. They looked cool, but I wanted to make sure to tone them down a little to the photos were the boldest thing on the page. I added this pretty star vellum over the tags. You can still see them, but the boldness of them is muted.
I really liked the way it turned out. There but not overwhelming. I of course had to add some badge buttons as well. Love those. I thought the geo tag one helped with the whole destination feel. I know she is not really driving the bus and we were not traveling, but the pictures tell a story themselves and the tag just worked!
Definitely check out the new awesome shop items!! You will love them!
