"Sweet Baby You” digital layout, by Krista Lund.
One of the things I love most about Bella Blvd Collections is that they offer up perfectly coordinated patterned paper. I have the hardest time choosing which papers to use because they are all adorable! For this layout I choose 3 main papers to create my background. I used a few borders for accents and to add additional color and patterns. I converted my photo to black and white to make it feel timeless as well as have it blend nicely with all the patterns.
I like to create clusters throughout my page. I try to arrange them in a way that leads your eye all around my layout. This one is placed in the lower left hand corner. I layered a bunch of elements and a chipboard script.
Here is a second smaller cluster placed on top of my photo. I love that I can easily duplicate any digital element and use it over and over if I need to. I made a copy of the cloud and placed one at opposite ends of the title piece. There are several ways to do this in Photoshop. The easiest is probably to drag the element onto your layout twice. You can also right click on the layer and choose duplicate layer.
I used a journal card and a couple of square cards to create a grid. I stacked my photo on top and this is the main focal part of my page. To get all my edges lined up, I clicked on the two smaller squares and chose to align those to the right. I then placed them next to the journal card and aligned them properly.
