Tuesday's Tip: Go Back

I remember when I started designing for Webster's Pages, well before Clean and Simple was a part of their approach.  I used the products differently than most classic WP designers.  Honestly, I love all the fussy layering and artsy stuff.  I just can't make it work.

But my style back then was a little more feminine,  I used more fussy cutting just in a cleaner way.  There were more patterns on a page and more bling.  My style may have changed a bit, but I know my roots.

It was fun to go back to a more classic Webster's approach when I was making some pages for the trade show.  I used one of Brandin's new collections, Party Time.  This page has a familiar feel to me and I like it.

I still have lots of straight lines, but I added lots of pattern, color, shapes and size.  I hand cut the garland from a sheet of the paper and layered it along the bottom of the top portion of the page.  I added in this cool sun, using straws to add dimension.
I also fussy cut that cluster of presents and the stars at the top.  I love Webster's because of this very reason.  You can cut, arrange and use each element in a unique way.  Every page is different.
It was fun going back.
