MWL July | Summer Adventure

Hey all, I am back for this month's post with Made With Love. I cant believe the school semester is back and it has been crazy thus far. In the midst of the busy schedule, I have been itching to scrap about my recent Europe trip. It was my first time in Europe and it was such a wonderful time spending it with my husband's family and him.

One of the highlights on this trip was to Lake Balaton in Hungary. It was the biggest lake in Central Europe. On our road trip to Lake Balaton, we stopped by the small town of Veszprem. We loved the quaint and queer vibes of this city and there was a great cliff look-out of the city. We had a whale of a time taking photos and I just had to document about it.

I got to work with Echo Park's Summer Fun collection and it was a really suitable travel collection to work it. I wanted the focus on the layout to be on the photos and to have a big title to complement it. To begin, I layered pieces of patterned papers on a neutral white background. Vary the prints of the pattern papers with different colours and prints and this is a useful way of starting the foundation of the layout.

I positioned my photos to one side of the layout, in a linear and chronological order. That way, the sequence of the photos will go easy on the eyes. Thereafter, I found small embellishments and word phrases and placed them around the photos.

I loved the print of the pink flammingo patterned papers in the collection and used it to create and void the empty space in the layout. Sometimes less is more and it doesn't mean that you need to use embellishments to fill in the extra spaces or gaps. Even papers can do that job!

Using some pop dots, I 'popped' up the title and completed the rest of the layout with some embellishments. Centralising the title in the middle of the page also helps to ensure the focus of the page - the photos and the title.

That completes this month's post. I hope you found the tips useful. Till then, I will see you next month with a brand new post.
