I love this layout by Christa because it is exactly what I can never seem to do... it has white space (what's that? I've rarely seen that on my layouts) and ah-maze-ing layering. I love, love, love the look of all of that layering. It gives a layout such depth and interest! Luckily, Christa wrote up a handy dandy tutorial on layering this month... she must have read my mind.
And, since I can't be the only one out there who needs some tips and tricks on how to layer on a layout, here I am to share it with you. C'mon! Let's have fun with layering...
Then I set to work on getting the bits layered how I wanted them. I never adhere anything until I know for sure it's how I want it on the page. Wish I were more of a fly by the seats of my pants kind of gal, but I'm not! I laid the wallet sized photos, overlay and yellow painted paper down in the vicinity of where I wanted it to the edges and border.
