Keeping it simple

Often, my layouts end up with multiple layers and piled-on embellishments; paint, glittered elements and more. Other times, I like to keep the layout itself simple so the photos can shine. That was the case with the layout I made using the July 1 sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.

This is the sketch:

I had taken some photos of a glorious sunset earlier in the week. This photostrip motif was perfect for the photos; but after I added a couple of simple embellishments, I decided that in this case, less is more. Here's my finished layout, using the June kit and add ons from Citrus Twist Kits:

Thanks for looking -- have a great day!
