For my final project with the amazing Ocean Blue collection by Graphic 45, I decided on a two-page layout.
I have some great photos from some amazing whale watching trips that I wanted to showcase. This collection is just amazing for this!
Graphic 45 Layout Details
First, I started with two sheets of navy blue cardstock. Next, I cut strips from 2 of the sheets from the Graphic 45 12x12 Collection Pack to make "border" strips along two sides on each page. Actually, I decided to keep the accents and embellishments simple because I really wanted to focus on the photos.
The first page chronicles the beginning of the "tail." I cut the "You, Me, and the Sea" from the border strip on the 12x12 paper. Then, I added a piece from the Graphic 45 Ocean Blue die cut assortment in the upper corner that really describes how I felt that day.
After that, I cut a ships wheel from the patterned paper and one from dark brown cardstock using my Cricut Joy. Then, I layered them together to create a shadowed effect.
Next, I attached the photos using pop dots to add some dimension to the page. I wanted the pages to really tie together so I added the border strips to the opposite side of the second page.
Final Touches of my G45 Layout
Then, I added another ships wheel in the upper left corner. I tied two pieces from the die cut assortment pack together and popped them onto the lower right corner.
I left the top hanging free just to give it some character. Finally, I used another piece from the Graphic 45 die cut assortment pack to create a title for the layout.
If you follow the order of the pictures, you can see the whale's tale flip from start to finish. This blue whale put on a fantastic show for us that day!
The Graphic 45 Ocean Blue collection is the perfect accent for my photos!
