Fergus Fair

The Fergus Fall Fair is a great one to visit. I didn’t get the chance to go this year, but I have a bunch of photos from our visit last year that I hadn’t done anything with. When looking at September’s Mood Board, I knew I had the perfect excuse to go through those photos and make a layout.

Since I had so many photos to choose from, I actually started this layout without choosing the photos first. I wanted to put together a composition and use products that would capture the feel of the mood board, and then pick photos that would work. As soon as I came across the frames from Crate Paper, I knew exactly how I could do that. I ended up choosing photos that could hold their own against all the embellishments on the page – ones that were close ups of a single subject, and that had a very narrow colourway. The almost monotone colours in the photos (creams, tans, browns, greys), helps set those frames apart and draw your eye to the photos, even though there are lots of possible distractions on this layout.

I wanted to mention that the foil letter stickers are great quality. The wrinkles and creases that are in mine are because of a curious cat that nibbled on them while there were stuck to the ruler I was using to lay them out :) You do see texture through the stickers, but they come off the sheets without any problem, and without any creasing.
