crate paper: captured

Today, I wanted share a fun layout I put together using the Crate Paper Styleboard collection! 
This collection had so many awesome elements and  papers and I wanted to highlight some of my faves using various punched circles, circular photos, flair and embellishments! 

I love these photos of my children. And I love how masking the photos into a circular shapes draws your eye into the photos.  I used Photoshop Elements to create these photos.  For a quick tutorial...check out this post. Instead of drawing hexagons, you will want to draw circles. Otherwise, it's the same!

To continue the shape around my page, I punched circles from a few papers and added in additional circular elements! I added several clusters around my page, but kept them roughly in a group of three keeping the composition within a visual triangle.

I typed my journaling onto vellum and layered it over a  patterned paper to add a little color while still maintaining the transparency of the vellum.

I'm really digging masking my photos into shapes recently!! What about you?? Have you tried  this technique yet!?
