Tuesday Tip: Frame It

Sometimes a design starts with one simple idea...a cute photo with random, non-grounded chipboard pieces along the side.  Because I love random, chipboard pieces.

The problem is that you are left with an empty design that is not quite grounded.  I continued to layer this page...puttting the title and the banner.  I placed the journaling and the opposite side strip...but the eye didn't find the focal point.

So I framed it with these cute metal trinkets from Teresa Collins.  It really closes in the photo and brings the eye right where it should be.

I put that metal crown on her head to add the third metal piece...love repeating elements.  Why not make it a banner day...again.

I used the new Sweet Afternnon collection from Teresa Collins to make this layout...fun news...Keisha Campbell and Suzanne Sergi have joined our team...hello....talent!!  The whole team is really loving this line!  Be sure to check out daily inspiration over the at DT blog.

Hope you have a great Tuesday!!
