E-scape Artist Team Reveal: The Power of Little Elements August 31, 2010

Filed under: E-scape Artists Team Reveals — Julie Mead @ 4:37 pm

by E-scape Artist Tania Ruiz

This week’s reveal spotlights some of the shop’s smallest products.  Our layouts were inspired by 3 different element packs: “Gizmos Inchies – Angels” by Kay Eflin, “Gizmos Inchies – Vintage” by Kay Eflin, and “Teeny Two Inch Frames” by Julie Mead.  Take a look at all the different ways these petite elements can be used – both as the main focus of a layout and as lovely accents to the page.  The neutral color scheme of the frames is a nice complement to the colorful stamp-type images included in the Inchies element packs.

Bianca August 2010 by Tania Ruiz
For this layout the angel squares were the perfect match for the poem used as journaling.  There are a number of different frames included in the Teeny Two Inch Frames pack, here Tania chose to use the one that allowed for 2 photos side by side.

A Good Daughter by Tania Ruiz
On this layout Tania cut out large sections of the Gizmos Inchies – Vintage element sheets.  These elements come all on one page so that you can use them as a background, a photo mat, or use them individually as elements around the page.  The versatile frames allowed 3 photos on this layout.

Kohles Family by Tania Ruiz
The Vintage Inchies and the natural look of the frames come together perfectly for a heritage layout such as this one.  Here the inchies were used in place of pictures in the frame, the images were chosen to enhance the larger pictures of Tania’s family above.  More of the Inchies were used as corners behind some of the heritage pictures.

Iman by AnikA
The frames come in different sizes all the way up to 5 in a row.  Here AnikA uses the largest of the frames to showcase a series of pictures, using ribbons and stitches to alter their look.

You by AnikA
The frames are front and center in this layout and go beautiful with the Summer So Fine Collab kit also available in the store.  The frames enlarge nicely and can be resized to meet your design needs.

Batter Up by Sandra
Here Sandra flips the frames on end and uses them to border her page with her pictures, complementing this are the other vertical elements and angles she includes on this layout.

Love Like An Ocean by Laura Madden
Laura uses these frames in parallel with her beaded element to draw the eye across the page and this lovely series of pictures.  They are complemented by other naturally colored elements included on the page.

Shirley by Laura Madden
The original Inchies images are in color but they are just as stunning when converted to sepia, as Laura did for this heritage layout.  Her stunning design is enhanced by these vintage images and the squares are perfect for forming a frame.

Brothers by Heidi Blankenship
On this layout Heidi uses the two-frame configuration from the set to compare/contrast siblings.  The different angles of the frame openings enhances this theme.
