Freestyle Freedom
by Amy Duquette, Creative Team Member

Freestyle is just a fancy way of saying you can be free in your creation. You do not have to be linear, balance anything, use colours that match...basically anything goes.

For my layout:
  • I enlarged my photo
  • and used the Blend Mode set to "Hard Light" and dropped the opacity of that layer down to 50% to get a dramatic effect.
  • I used a variety of embellishments that had different textures...glitter, glass button, cardboard, lace, ribbon, sticker and a stamp
  • and arranged them so that they complimented my photo in the frame without overpowering it.
  • After adding some journalling and a title, the layout is finished...very easy and very fun!
