Sandy - Basic Grey What's Up Layout

This month our challenge theme is Travel and Sandy has a layout created with Basic Grey's latest travel collection : What's Up.

The colour combination of red, teal and salmon is one that spoke to me. I knew exactly what photo I wanted to scrap with it. My photo has nothing to do with vacations but it does have a story about embarking on a journey.

The basic design is a horizontal division in a ratio of 2.5 :7: 2.5. Colourful patterns are confined to the two borders with a (relatively) white space in the middle for the 5"x7" photo of my friend.

To create flow on my layout, I used two chipboard arrows to draw the eye from the large floral border on top, through the two-part title, down to the journalling. Embellishment clusters anchor the start and the end of this visual trail with a smaller one at the beginning and a larger one at the end.

If you have a favourite travel, do email it to us at for the chance to win a a Teresa Collins Spring Fling Collection Pack. More details on our May challenge can be found here.
