Vroom Vroom by Sandy

Sandy sharing a layout that relies mainly on the use of shapes and colour control. Starting from a photo of my friend's sky blue Vespa, I chose a handful of teal-coloured items from the kits. For contrast I picked out some brown supplies and added some yellow ones as accents.

The design is created by simply dividing the page into four rectangle blocks. To create flow I placed a series of downward arrows behind the photo. They lead to a series of bicycles stamped wavily across the bottom to connect to the journal block.

The sunburst wood shape framing the third side of my photo is about 2.5cm thick. This lead to the raised photo and journalling block which gives a nice dimensionality to the layout.

My favourite thing has to be this journal block. It's adapted from an art exhibition poster and mimics those plastic geometric shape stencils I used in school. I scattered my journalling amongs those cut-out shapes and used a variety of fonts to create interest.
