For The Love of Layers *GCD Studios Technique*


Since it is now Autumn time it is time to start bundling up in layers. Don't you love layering on nice warm and cozy layers of clothing?!! I also love adding layers to my scrapbooking layouts. Just as layering clothing as more texture, warmth, and depth to your wardrobe, adding layers to your layouts will do the same. On this layout of my daughter's first day of high school I layered butterfly on top of butterfly with an additional layer of stitching just for good measure.

I also layered on the glorious borders. So much fun!

So if you would like to add just a little something extra to your layout next time...just think about a little layering! Wishing you all a warm and cozy day!!
Hugs, Cheryl

  2. I loved those photos when you posted them right after school started, and I love them now. You did a beautiful job on this layout and I love how you used very little of the actual color she is wearing. It makes it stand out against those calypso blues and limey greens all the more.
