Project - DESIGN SCHOOL: How And When Did My Baby Grow Up

I was so excited to be asked to be a guest designer for the 2Peas Design School event this week! I was given the theme of “Proportion/Scale” for the focus of my project.
When I think of proportion/scale, I think of the size of my elements on my layouts, and how they go together. Kind of like if I had a small tree element on my layout, I wouldn't want to put a gigantic flower next to it. One of the things that I tend to always keep larger in size on my layouts, are my titles. And I normally work with standard sized photos. So I thought it would be fun to use a HUGE photo on my page, along with a small title.
For this layout, I started with an 8x12 photo of my daughter, Sarah. Every now and then, it's fun to enlarge a favorite photo, and use it on a scrapbook page, really letting the photo shine! I used some smaller letter stickers from Sassafrass, to create my longer-than-usual journaling. I think my title ended up acting as my title AND my journaling. To create the banner pieces up top, I traced the shape of some Studio Calico die cuts, onto pattern paper that matched my layout.
Thanks so much for looking, and joining me here at 2Peas for DESIGN SCHOOL!
