So what can I make with this collection? Well, I love the succulents, and I love the gorgeous flowers, and I could see myself using them with boys – with some color tweaking – but I also LOVE the papers. The patterns are mostly unisex and the colors lend themselves especially well to unisex layouts.
With this in mind, I started thinking of ways in which I could incorporate multiple papers and still have a simple page. Angie has PNGs for the various layers of her clusters included in her coordinating Wonderful You Cluster Embellishment Mini, and I decided the triangle templates would be ideal for what I had in mind.
I placed the triangle PNGs onto my page, flipping them to my liking. Next, I merged the layers so all triangles were on a single layer.
A simple pin through the top to hold it together, some shadows, and my page was done! It was really easy and quick, and I think the simple lines and visual interest created by the triangles is just enough for this page.
Sometimes when you are doing a boy page, a heritage page, or even a travel page, and embellishments are hard to select, consider a “clean lines” page. After all, the page is designed to complement your photo, not compete with it.
