Sketches in Thyme Plus Counterfeit Kit Challenges
And then here’s my layout for the third challenge for the Counterfeit Kit Club, to use lots of layers on a layout. This one has five layers under the photos – and the layers at the top are slightly different than the layers at the bottom. It uses up lots of cut paper pieces from my November kit. I added in both gold alphabets, to give the page a little pizzazz.
There are two tricky things about layers – first, getting the glued down just the way you had the laid out and secondly, making sure you maintain a balance to both side of the pages. For the first problems, many scrappers will staple the layers together, which I think works well in cases of smaller pieces. For the second problem, a photograph will usually show up the problem easily. You can see here that this same layout was heavy to the right before I added that last bit of paper. Much better now.
That’s all for today.
