Today I am sharing a layout I created for the Get It Scrapped Article on Using Entertaining Ephemera on Scrapbook Layouts. When my daughter was younger her favourite colours were pink and yellow so I created a page that had a pink and yellow watercolour look. I used Dylusion Spray Inks primarily and watered them down so they were less vibrant, although this is still quite a colourful page! I used some balloons cut using my cricut expression on the background before I added the colour to the page. The title was also cut with the cricut.
I included a basic copy of the party invitation and a couple of photographs to create a loose grid on my page. I added a paper frame by Elle’s studio around the photo of my daughter. To emphasise the food in the photo, I desaturated all the colours except for the magenta and reds using the sliders in Lightroom. This meant my photo was basically black and white except for that pop of pink. I used some other grey elements on the page just to balance out some of the colour in the other areas of the page.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to pop over to the Get It Scrapped blog for lots more examples of using memorabilia on your layouts. There are both digi and paper scrapbookers plus some great forums to check out too. I’ll be back soon with another layout to share.
