Journaling reads: "Friday 3 May 2013 was a *no school* day. There seems to be far too many of those in my humble opinion. I didn’t want E and L sitting around the house consumed by technology, and so when the opportunity arose to do a little volunteer work at a local farm, we jumped at it. Well, if the truth be known the girls did. The boys not so much. Eric took the day off to join us. We had anticipated working with the animals but planted some trees and built some fences instead. Sometimes things don’t quite work out as you expect but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them and find the good in helping others."
I used a Artsy Layered Template No. 98 for this layout (coming to the store on Friday) with the addition of the MultiCircle Frames. I seem to be gravitating a LOT toward those lately.
I also used the new 12 X 12 Flower Overlays No. 1 but not in the manner you might expect. Instead of placing one overlay on my page as designed, I used two different overlays partially visible while overlapping the edges of layout. The red lines below indicate the placement of both overlays.
The top right overlay was recolored to dark grey with Normal blending mode applied while the bottom left overlay was recolored to purple with a Vivid Light blend mode. The visible harsh edge of the latter was muted by the careful placement of a line of stitching while the solid edge of the other overlay layer was erased with brushes from ArtPlay Palette Inflorescence.
Another technique you might consider when using Edge Overlays.
