The stitched frames in this month's kit coordinate with the 'Flea Market' collection and are actually fabric rather than paper or chipboard. They are therefore quite pliable and can lose their shape easily. I found that by sticking my photo down first it was then a lot easier to adhere the frame directly on top, rather than try to attach the frame to the photo before adding it to the layout. The detail on the stitched frames is really delicate, pretty and lovely.
For this page design I've used one regular 6x4 portrait photo together with a little square photo (I think it's around 3x3). I don't always mix photo sizes, mainly because I have all my photos printed in a job lot each month in 6x4 format, so naturally I have a lot of those lying around, but I think the mix of one large and one small works well here. Ive embellished the layout using little pieces cut from one of the papers and this month's flag shaped Thickers are really cool.
I've used just the one photo this time and it didn't fit inside any of my frames particularly well so I've added a frame here for use in a different way...to hold my title. I had originally intended to write my journaling in the frame but somehow that didn't happen and the title ended up there instea.
