Designing with Circles for Get It Scrapped

Hi everyone,

I am squeezing in a couple of posts sharing some scrapbook layouts created for Get It Scrapped in the next couple of days.  This first double page layout was created for the topic – Ideas for Designing with Circles.  You can see the pages of the rest of the creative team over on the Get It Scrapped Blog here.

For my page I took inspiration from one of Debbie Hodge’s pinterest pages here  and created this layout with colourful circle frames around my photographs.  I chose to highlight some of the things that we do together as a family and converted the photographs to black and white.  I cut the circles out using my cricut expression and gypsy to create the design.  I then used gelatos around the edges (but you could use watercolour crayons for this technique also)  I used additional die cut circles that I loosely outlined with a black pen and arranged them to create a flow around my page.  I kept the embellishments pretty simple on this page and draw a frame around the layout using a craft nib and black paint.  If you have any questions just leave me a comment and I will be sure to reply.

I’ll be back tomorrow with  Pastel Christmas Layout.

Hope you are enjoying your December and thanks for stopping by.
