This way or Thataway? The Thataway collection by Studio Calico is a travel collection that is not overly themed. The colours are muted and compliment each other really well but there is the odd bright colour sneaking in there too...
Ive used two 4x4 square photos for this layout and arranged them together in the centre. The background reminded me of bricks and even though the words contained in them are strictly-speaking travel themed, I though they still worked well for these pictures of my little girl on a digger - things like: explore, let's go, adventure, flat tire, etc. I used narrow strips at just the bottom of the layout instead of top and bottom like I often do, and made a journaling card to hold my journaling out of patterned paper. I love the little flair badges - so cute!
I started off with three 6x4 landscape photos and was going to put all three on the vertical down the layout but while one photo was really good, the other two could have been cropped in a bit so I ended up with the arrangement below: one 6x4 and two 3x4" portraits. I love the soft clouds in the background.
Kirei has also made a layout using these supplies and there are more details on her blog about how she made it.
