Featuring Tara Orr and Graphic 45

Hi everyone.
Tara Orr and myself have some of our work being featured on the Graphic 45 Blog and I thought I would share Tara's with you here at Imaginarium Designs.

This is what she had to say about her layout.
"A picture is worth a thousand words! Just love this photo of my daughter and husband on a recent trip to our local nature park. She was pretty much on cloud 9 in her daddy's arms. I chose to accent with warm tones of brown and touches of green, balanced by an otherwise neutral palette. There are heaps of layers in this project although it doesn't look crowded thanks to an enlarged photo which remains the focal point of the project. When papers have strong, bold patterns and colours, only little bits are needed to create stunning effects." -Tara Orr

I love Tara's clever use of our chipboard embelishements. She created a "fence look" by placing them side by and putting a clock image from Graphic 45. I love the whole look of the page. Tara is an expert at layering, and each time you look at her work you always find something you missed the time.
