Design Thursday – Featured Design: Art of Expression

These girls know how to be beautiful and fierce. In the streets of New York you can see it all, live it all, do it all. They are determined to be a part of the action. This design is one of my favorites to date. I used the Treble Cleft because they love to sing, the stars because they are personal super stars, the vibrant colors because they live out loud and the circles because they always stand united as sisters.

To recreate: Layer two papers for the background, add rounded tag behind rounded pattern paper, apply to the background, layer two papers to create a photo mat, add plain paper square behind the photo mat, add photo, apply on top of the rounded pattern paper, layer circle die cuts, add musical notes, stars, brads and circle die cuts, add smaller stars and additional musical notes around the photo, add journaling tag, journaling, and title.
