Some of the design team members at Graphic 45 decided to use three of the same Communique papers and see how different our layouts would turn out to be for our Same Papers Different Styles feature. The papers we all used were:

And this is my layout using the three Communique papers:

I kept the lines on this layout clean with quite a bit of white space. To balance the layout I added a mini cluster on the top right, which is where I placed the title {Heart}. The title is short for "I {heart} you", a play on popular current jargon. The contemporary title is juxtaposed against the old style forms of communication featured in the patterned papers, such as old world rotary phones, to bring out the contrast between old and new.

The title is stamped using Great Circus alphabet stamps from Purple Onion Designs. The font on this alpha is beautiful and as with all Purple Onion rubber stamps, the image is fantastically crisp.

The flower centre here is made from Prima lace.
