Oh my goodness, half of the year is gone and summer is upon us. I hope that you have documented the first half of your year. If not, let’s get started and make a page today using one of the latest trends – flag embellishments! Whether you buy your pack of flag embellishments, or just make it yourself with a tooth pick and some pattern paper, they look great on a page!
When I create a page, I try and decide ahead of time what the “feel” of the page will represent. I do this by first choosing my color palette, from then I move on to my photos and lastly I decide on my embellishments. The best thing about using a flag embellishment is that it does not over power your page. The flags are just an added touch to your page in order to enhance what you are saying and what you want to have your viewers feel when they see your layout.
There are three layouts below and they all make me feel happy because the colors are primary and bright. Notice the flags are small and you don’t see them right away but when you do, it’s a nice surprise.
