Use Your Words | Nancy Damiano

Let's talk titles, beautiful staggered ones that add a pop to your designs. Anytime I find myself searching for an original layout idea, I start with the words. The words + photos are always my main focus. The rest of it is the icing! 

Loved by @nancydamiano | @felicityjaneOne of the first items that jumped out at me from the Jane kit was this intricate die cut. I love how it drapes all the way across the page underlining the photo. It's the perfect title with a wow factor. I grabbed this first and built the rest of the design around it.

To make this photo of my niece pop, I added a bed of layers in the pretty patterns from this month's kit. Initially all of the layers were squares and rectangles. I cut one of those squares diagonally and used this triangle to break up all of the straight square lines. The one shape adds impact to the top of the design. I tucked a handout flower just under the photo, added a die cut flag and anchored it all with a bold black and white stripe flair button. Hello beautiful layers!

At this point, I had a large, blank space just under the title. What to do, what to do? I looked over at the stamp set and thought - maybe some words. More words are a good thing. I lined up the stamped sentiments right in the center just under the word "loved". Using different colors of ink adds a pop to otherwise very white space. 

Loved by @nancydamiano | @felicityjaneWords + design are where it's at. Use them up, center them, stamp them. The next time you break open a kit, go for the words first and make the centerpiece of your design.
