Glo Kluuvi

This week’s throwback layout is a simple one. One photo, one solid background paper, one patterned paper, minimal layering and embellishments, and a simple block font title. I took inspiration from the building in the photo – very minimal, and very rectilinear.

Both of those choices give this page a slightly more masculine look, which works well with both the architecture and the two business men in the foreground. I added a few layers to anchor the photo and add a touch of black to the upper part of the page. I added ink splatters with Heidi Swapp’s Color Shine mist in gold. I like how the the shimmer of the mist relates to the shine of the glass on the building. And after all, a little bit of bling never hurts a layout.
