Black stitching just helped to give more emphasis on the title and added a bit of texture to the layout. I love the whimsical look that the zig zag stitching gives to the title. It also helped to anchor the title and gave me a great spot to start my journaling.
The camera was the perfect accent for this cluster. Cameras are always perfect to add to a scrapbooking layout, so if you ever get stuck on embellishment ideas, choose cameras. The kit came with the Simple Stories clear stickers. This is my first time using them and I really enjoyed using them.
I'm going to show you now how I fixed my boo-boo. I usually journal on my page after I take pictures for my DT work, and for reasons just like the one that I am getting ready to show you. I made a mistake and I wrote a word twice. Oops! I looked through the kit and found some black arrow stickers, but they did not cover up the mistake in its entirety. So I went to my wood veneer stash and found the perfect size arrow. Fortunately where I made the mistake was on the edge and the bottom row, so the arrow just put a bit of emphasis on the journaling. I also chose two small wood veneer shapes to put in the other clusters. I left the wood veneer plain because the wood theme was already on the page, and the color was good as well.
I have a process video if you'd like to take a peek.
