Poster Profile: Tan Yin Wen
Scrapbooking extends around the entire world and today we have a project that comes to us all the way from Singapore. Tan Yin Wen created this beautiful poster profile using products from the Making Memories Just Chillin’ line.
Here are Tan Yin Wen’s instructions:
1) Using the sewing machine, I first created an irregular square stitched frame in the middle of the page where I wanted my photo and embellishments to be. I did the sewing twice to show the irregularity and to have the lines overlapping. This also thickened the frame slightly. I added zig zag stitches to one small portion of the square frame and a tiny bowed ribbon to add dimension.
2) I matted the photo with Making Memories Just Chillin’ Girl paper, which I gave a torn look on one side, and layered above it a page from one of the Making Memories Just Chillin’ spiral journaling books.
3) As the photo had a wide empty side to its right, it was a great place to place the title of the layout. The Just Chillin Canvas Alphas were just right for the page with the matching color tones.
Even though it’s a guy layout, I wanted to have the mix of the vibrant colors from Just Chillin’ Girl paper and products. I love how versatile both the girl & boy series are.
Thanks for sharing your ideas with us, Tan Yin Wen!
