Wow!  Can you believe we are finishing up the month of July today??  (If you are keeping track that is 146 days until Christmas!)  Speaking of finishing up...how do you "finish" a layout?  Today's inspiration comes from this blog post by Monica:  Adding a Finishing Touch to your Layout  She gives us some great ideas on finishing touches for our layouts.  What is your favorite "finishing touch?"

 

Your challenge today is to create a layout and add a finishing touch. (be sure and tell us what you did!)  There are many ways to achieve this, brushes, templates, frames...the possibilities are endless!!  I can't wait to see what you creative souls come up with!  I always learn something from you all!

 

 

Here are some of my favorite "edger" templates:

 

Syndee's ScrapSimple Paper Templates: On Edge Burlap

Brandy's ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Edgers Biggie

Amanda's ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Essential Grungy Edges

 

 

When you finish your layout, post it to the SG Blog Challenge Layouts Gallery and post a link back in this thread.

Here is my layout:  On the Road Again

 

I tried a few different finishing touches, but really liked the way this one turned out.  There was already an "edge" from the torn paper template, and the faded vignette emphasized it.  I used Amanda's ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Faded Vignettes and soft light blending mode at 75% opacity.

Here's my layout - Ship Ahoy

 

I didn't have any edgers, so for my finishing touch I used AFT_SSStyles_BokehGlitter_6401_White on the swirls on the background paper.

I had already been putting together this layout about the O-Line, but after reading this challenge, I took a look at my layout and then at my brush options. The Path Strokers Dynamic Brush, which I bought last year, had a perfect brush option that looks much like the apes' hands linking and forming swoops, much like the ropes they traverse on this "orangutan expressway." Thanks for the challenge to add a finishing touch to my layout!
