A fashionable layout

7 Sep

I get a lot of inspiration from the rich world of design that saturates our everyday life in fashion, home decor, book covers, and graphic ad design. For my assignment to do a fashion-inspired layout (for this article), I took this Lucky Brand Chevron and Flower Maxi Dress:

and came up with this fun digital layout:

Nature-Themed Layouts

6 Sep

Most of my layouts have people, events, or relationships as their focus. Some layouts just have objects with stories I want to share. But I rarely get around to scrapping with just scenic photos, so I was happy to have the assignment from Get It Scrapped to do a nature-themed layout for the Ideas and Angles for Scrapbooking Your Outdoor Travel and Outings article.

In “Roaring Water is Peace” I pieced together multiple photos of a nature scene taken on a hike to create a panorama. It was fun to puzzle out how they would fit together. I arranged them diagonally to reinforce the “flowing water” theme. I misted the scalloped trim and then stitched them down. I also stitched under the word “peace” to emphasize it.

Sometimes you just want to highlight a beautiful picture, perhaps paired with a quote. Throw in some embellishments and you have a quick and easy layout that you will love. Here is a recent one that I did for the Easy Scrapbook Pages site (click on the link for step-by-step instructions):

Misting Fun

5 Sep

I contributed two layouts to Get It Scrapped’s Ideas for Misting article. It was so fun to play with mists as both a page accent and as a way to outline a stencil.

Misting with masks allows you to create cool backgrounds for your layouts. On Surfer Girl I misted over a mask and then removed it. I added rub-on doodled flowers and rhinestones to add a fun, whimsical touch. I wanted to create the look of depth so I pop-dotted the photo and journaling spot to raise them above the base layer.

I made “Our Summer by the Numbers” to group recurring summer activities together to show their repetition in our life–especially activities like swimming, eating, and playing.

Instead of just using mist to doctor a page background, I used mist to create a pie chart accent. I used a white paper filter embellishment as the base and then made simple masks from scrap paper in wedge shapes. Then I sprayed each section a different color, leaving one blank. I also sprayed a smaller coordinating filter as well.
