I used brads as pushpins on a map. I was so happy that this paper was geographically accurate for our destination/arrival points too. And airmail twine of course. Can you tell my new obsession is all things airmail? I have decided it is the theme or our Hawaii album and have been pretty happy with it so far, though it is not the first thing you think of when you think of tropical destinations. But it works!
A collage of instagram prints from our night at the rodeo. Lots of new Studio Calico, OA Sasparilla and Crate chipboard too. The background paper didn't need much, but I really like how it turned out. I love using woodgrain to mat my photos now, it is a great neutral background with just enough texture.
The whole approach is pretty basic. A few sheets of patterned paper and a row of multicolored shipping tags. I used a very loose rainbow order to arrange them (see? green, blue, purple, red, orange, yellow). Subtle? Yes, but it takes the guess work out of finding a good color arrangement for me. I then just added little embellishments here and there to each tag. Just enough to make them unique, but not too much to distract from the picture. How cute are those Amy Tangerine fabric yo-yos? I could use some in every color.
