This page, I love. I used my exacto knife to cut out random pieces from the chevron woodgrain paper. Since the chevron pattern is so small, I didn't want to take the time to try and line the back of each cut out so I just ran strips of paper down each row - plus I think it makes more of an impact on the cut outs vs. if they were all different and mixed up. Having rows of the same color/pattern makes the design cut out more visible and s"stronger" I think.
Here's a look at what the page looked like before the top layer went on. The only tricky part of this is getting the sticky behind the strips and getting the strips placed just so while holding the top layer in place so that you get these base strips placed just so.
So then I had this fab idea to run the ticket strips down some of the rows and tuck them behind some of the cut outs. Man, I felt smart, lol. It's like giving it another layer of interest and I love how it made the ends of the ticket strips into angled ends. I typed a small bit of journaling on my photos in Photoshop before I printed them so all I had left was a title - that part is pretty self explanatory :)
