January Technique Challenge: Ransom Note

Inspired by the Seven Paper washi tape included in the Fresh Start kit, our technique challenge this month is to create a layout with a title or sub-title in “ransom note” style.

The Seven Paper Clara paper and any of the alpha stickers in the kit and add-ons would be great for this challenge, too. I spread out my kit, chose photos, and went to work on the title first:

Using scissors and sometimes tearing, I spelled out “Mom” and “Addie”. Based on the colors of those letters, I chose papers.

I love the pink, yellow, green and gray combination. It feels fresh after the holiday color palettes I had been working with in December.

I fussy-cut the butterfly and flower from the Basic Grey journaling cards paper in the kit. They coordinate perfectly with the colors I pulled from the washi tape for my title.
