Studio J online Boot Camp Day 3

Beautiful You Layout:

Pattern: Imagine: Up the Tempo
Kit Mix #3

·      Quick 30 minute layout
·      Border using My Stickease Frame
·      Changing paper intensity

Putting the layout together
1.     Drop photos in wells.
2.     Change the color of polka dot B&T to Black, adjusting intensity to 30%.
3.     Change color of Baby Pink cardstock to Grey Wool.
4.     Change Cotton Candy cardstock to Tulip.
5.     Change journaling well on right page to White Daisy background. Note: even though the words “add journaling” appear onscreen, they will not print or be visible in the final JPG file.  However, to make the message disappear permanently, simply type a single space.
6.     Add 1/16” mat in White Daisy to all photos.
7.     Delete three title wells on left page.

Finishing touches:
1.     Turn off toggle accents.
2.     Add My Stickease swirl frame (Frames) at 100% behind photo mat and across page, cropping as desired to create a border.
3.     Add the following My Stickease images to right page, rotating, cropping, and resizing as desired.

5.     Create title as follows:

b.     “beautiful” in 75 pt. Handmade font, no background, White Daisy font
6.     Create word accents using multiple text areas in 40 pt., Handmade font, no background, Cotton Candy text, aligned to right.
7.     Create journaling using 22 pt. Handmade font, no background, Black text.
8.     Use glue dots to attach mesh flowers, sparkles, and ribbon as desired.  (the layout for this day with the most “likes” will win the embellishment pack needed to complete this layout.)

Michelle's finished layout:

I had a lot of fun with the pictures on this layout.  Before the Boot Camp, we were told color schemes of the layouts so I knew that we would probably be using the Sweetheart kit. I found these pics of Madison that I loved, but unfortunately, they were in fall colors.  I first tried making them black and white, but it seemed to lose some of the personality.  So instead, I went to my iphoto (Mac) editing tools and under effects, I found a really handy-dandy fade color tool that gave my pictures the perfect look. Here is my finished layout with the classic embellishments added.
