Contemplating the Beach {Drill #13: Trendy Triangles}

While on vacation this year, my sweet husband took several photos of the kids as they roamed the beach.  It was a tad chilly when we started our adventure, but then the sun came out and we were amazed at all we could see in Monterey, CA.

I adore photos of the kids when they don’t even know we’re taking photos - my son looks like he’s really contemplating the ocean and its hidden treasures possibly even mapping out his day of discovery.

Using triangles on layouts helps to highlight or point the way to a focal point on your layout and I’ve added a bit of machine stitching to the triangles - I think it gives them an “arrow” look.

Be sure to upload your layouts, cards or other projects to S.W.A.T’s Drill #13 - Trendy Triangles.

Materials:  Simple Stories 24/Seven and Mr. Huey's Mists
