Photo overlays are so much fun!! You can place overlays over your pictures, over a card, or just use them as an embellishment for a page. Here are five different takes on using Shimelle’s photo overlays.
For this layout I just used the photo overlay over my picture. Very simple, but helped the photo to stand out.
This layout is a little different, I did not use a photo overlay over my picture but I did use two under my picture. See the tag like overlay and the 4×4 gold one? This is how you can use the overlays as layers for under a picture.
On this layout I did two thing, one I placed the overlay over the picture and second I cut one (Wander) and made it like an embellishment to add to my layout.
Photo overlays can even be used for cards. For this card I just added some patterned paper with a sticker under the overlay and then added some embellishments on top of the overlay.
My last project is a framed art piece. To make this piece you simple get a 4×6 frame, add a piece of patterned paper right over the glass and then add your photo overlay. Embellish the frame as you like, I just layered some of the Shimelle diecut pieces and then added a wood veneer piece.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my projects using the Shimelle collection! I LOVE the beautiful colors in this line and know you will too!
