Tuesday Tip: Loud and Clear

Ever go in a slightly different direction when you create?  Maybe you work with more patterns or use more/less layers?

Take this newest layout...I realized that it is just a little bolder than usual.  I wondered about it for a few minutes.  Then I realized that I am okay with it loudness.

Loud and clear has its place and time.  It works on this layout because I wanted a bold message, vibrant colors and pure happiness.  It fits the paper and it fits the topic.

I just adore this new collection from Webster's Pages & Allison Kreft.  It is called Sweet Notes and it is full of happy bright colors.  I see spring and summer.  You can win this collection and some embellies if you head over to the Webster's Pages blog now!

I saw the row of books that show up in several places within the collection and was inspired.  My kids love books and they love stories.  It lead me to these photos of them with Nana...being silly, sharing tall tales and using their imagination. 

I decided to use the yellow as a base, adding the pinks along the top.  I jazzed it up with the sparkly blue trim...bold.

Look at these fuchsia birds on the wire...swoon.  I cut this paper along a bit of a curve and it is super cute!
Since I had such bright colors and fun patterns, I wanted my title to stand out.  I used a consistent, short title right in the middle of my cluster.  That is where the clear comes in.  In the midst of color comes structure.  See the "documented" underneath...it is one of the new overlays...journaling cards...these things are awesome!

I incorporated the bright green and fuchsia in other places to carry the eye. 

There are many times in life you should strive to be loud and clear!  Creating is one of them!
