Do What You Love
I love the digital brush options and knew I wanted to use a large version of the 'do what you love' digital stamp brush. In Photoshop, I played around with the brush so the phrase "do what you love love what you do" (with the word love only being used once) would be prominent. I repeated the design across the page and made the third one a darker grey. I also added a subtle polka dot pattern to my graphic before printing it out on 8.5x11" AC cardstock.
After that, it was just a matter of adding my photos and layering some elements at the bottom of the page. The page didn't seem quite finished to me so after everything was glued on, I decided to handsew the 'love'. So much fun creating this hybrid layout :)
