|Start:||Let’s start with this TIC TAC TOE board and see what we can create:|
|Style:||I chose the top row – wood, washi tape and flair. The map paper gave me the idea of doing a layout of a few photos of my family on their Pokémon hunts this summer. Sometimes we went out primarily in search of Pokémon, and other times we just remembered to check for them while on other trips. If I look, I can probably find a few more snapshots to fill a companion pocket page.|
I wanted to the page to feel full and busy, so I used two collages of photos. I decided to have fun with the title, changing its direction and slanting the Pokémon part as if you have to follow it along to find it all. It is kind of playful that way. I decided to add the strip of black along the edge so that the title can’t “fall off the page.” I also used several circular elements that echo the poke ball shapes in the photos.
|Stash:||I believe most of this is from American Crafts, in one way or another – many of the bits and bobs are Studio Calico kit leftovers of years past. I created this layout at my weekend crop, so I wasn’t really concerned about keeping track.|
Why not pop over the The Studio Challenges and see how the other gals have tic-tac-toed their way to a finished layout.
