Yup, sensory overload!!! That is exactly what it was when we spend the morning at Pike's Place Public Market in downtown Seattle. There is just sooooooo much to see and do there!
We even had our very first crumpets, and had coffee at the location of the very first Starbucks. No visit to Seattle is complete without experiencing all that The Market has to offer.
For the page below, I created a photo collage from a few of my fave snapshots and papers from a couple of Cocoa Daisy kits.
Since the colors of the photos in the collage are just so vibrant and visually busy, I knew my background had to be quite simple. I used grey cardstock to ground the whole thing, and a simple white "notebook" patterned paper from Basic Grey for my background. I used a punch along the top edge to play off the "notebook" look.
I just could not do this page without using at least a few colorful patterned papers, so I kept it to a minimuim and only used little bits sticking out from above and below the photo collage. A nice, straight edge on the patterned papers keeps it visually clean.
Polka dot washi tape "grounds" the photo collage, and visually seperates the collage from the patterned paper. The banner is from Basic Grey and is from the Cocoa Daisy September kit. To finish it off, and to pay homage to the birthplace of my beloved Starbucks, I used a "coffee cup stain" stamp. One of my favorites stamps of all time from Cocoa Daisy!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
