I have another layout here with my favorite subject and my favorite stamps sets. I am trying to lessen my obsession with coffee but so far it isn't really working. My 3 cups a day habit is still going strong. haha
This page was actually inspired by a page I saw at Studio Calico by Mana1 (here). I love the simple design and the circles mimicking the coffee cup. I made the large circle by placing a bowl over the area I planned to have the doily and the photo. When tracing the bowl I kept in mind the spots I wanted to put the stamp and the word stickers. I left those blank and hand drew the arrows and dots to fill in the extra space.
For the "coffee" stamp in the upper right corner I used my yellow colored pencil to create an ombre effect. I like the little pop of color there. Of course since I had yellow there and in the middle I decided to add it to the lower left stamp as well. It created a nice flow around the page.
Aren't these pink paislee stars delicious? I love the little gold veins in the cork.
This little coffee cup was just right for this spot. I love that it also continues the subtle circle theme I had going.
Sometimes simple pages are just what I need to convey the thought I have in my head when creating a layout. The focus is on the photo but little bits of things help make it interesting. It certainly seems to work here.
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a lovely, creative day.
