It is difficult to believe that it is already June! Time flies when you're having fun scrapbooking, right? Today, I'm sharing a layout for the CSI Design Team.
Last month, my daughter and my mother went on a wonderful cruise together. They started their Cruise in Barcelona, Spain and ended in Rome. I will eventually be doing layouts about their various destinations, but this one focuses on Monte Carlo, in the principality of Monaco.
One of my favorite techniques used in my layouts is heat embossing. Here, I embossed this lovely architectural element with embossing powders. Both are by Blue Fern Studios.
Stamping, to draw interest to an area, is one of my signature techniques.
Here, you can see a 3-D element and paint splatters. I use both of these as go-to techniques frequently.
Using a diamond pattern in this layout seemed perfect as you see this same design element in Monaco's coat of arms. The photo below shows how I incorporated the same element in the background of this layout.
