Using Diagonal Lines with Shimelle Products!

Yesterday, I had a new layout featured on the blog, and it's a favorite one of mine! 

I typically tend to shy away from bold paper, like this Ranger pattern in the Starshine collection, but when I realized I could use it to create emphasis on my photos, I was excited to take advantage of those bold diagonal lines.

All of my embellishments were placed along the diagonal, so that I didn't break up those lines. I also tried to color block the red embellishments to the red lines, and the blue embellishments to the blue lines, so that there was a sense of continuity.

My favorite part of the layout is the placement of this acetate arrow, which really draws attention to the vertical row of photos and houses my title. It was definitely one of those "happy accidents" that it fit perfectly on top of the photo of the Beefeater, the pointed to my journaling.

I was so excited about creating this layout that I created a process video: 

Be sure to check out all of the Shimelle products used in this layout. I love how the different collections work perfectly together! 

Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!
