Start the Art Layout

I created this artsy layout to showcase some photos I took when we visited the San Jose Museum of Art. I didn't take many photos - mostly because I was so engrossed at the art and just didn't think to take out my camera. I do love the photo of my daughter and son looking at the wall art. I had to mat that one so it would stand out a little more than the other photos.

I decided to use some artsy paper for the layout. One was a piece that my daughter had created years ago at a workshop and another was an older gel print that I had done. I stamped the title with a stamp set from Jane Davenport and matted it with black cardstock.

I decided to stamp that quote on the top left and add a sliver of black cardstock just to balance the black in the layout. I probably could have pulled that sliver out a little more, but boy it was stuck!

Some black licorice splatter on the diagonal corners to finish it up.  Honestly, I wasn't sure how to embellish this one. I have some art/creative type stamps but those were mostly painting type icons and I didn't think it really fit.

I created a process video of how it came together:

I chose the red cardstock base because of the museum sign. This really could have been any color but I like the pop of red!

Is it just me or does everyone have trouble keeping things straight on the layout? Even with the various rulers, nothing ever seems straight!
