Step 1: Gathering supplies - photos, journaling, white card stock and a mix of stamps and stickers. I also plan to use my trusty typewriter.
Step 2: I created my main title by stamping and heat embossing, then outlining the letters with a Sharpie pen.
Step 3: I like this as the basis for the layout. Still lots more to do...
Step 4: I decided to work out from my photos, choosing smaller letter stickers for key locations on our drive and filling in the rest of the journaling with typewritten journaling strips.
Step 5: Placing some of the journaling above the photos and some below creates a flow that takes your eye right through the pictures.
Step 7: As a final tweak, the title needed some attention, so I matted it on gray card stock and pop dotted it.
You can see more ideas in the article here. It takes some thought, but merging the title and journaling is an effective design technique. Have you ever done this on a layout?
