Rainbow Pastel Layout for Get It Scrapped

Hi everyone,

Here is a layout created for the Get It Scrapped article about creating a rainbow pastel look on your layouts.  To create my rainbow pastel effect I used a few of the Prima Colour Bloom Sprays over the top of a textured white background that I created by gluing thin strips of white card to the 12×12 case base.

I have had these photos of my daughter for ages and have wanted to scrapbook them.  The colours in my daughters shirt also provided some inspiration for the colours of bloom sprays that I chose.  Since this photograph reminds me of the pictures of celebrities or VIPS getting off the plane I decided to to use film strips and touches of gold to create glamour and to fit with this idea.  I was also able to use some black with the pastels by considering where I placed things and making sure that I maintained a balance so it didn’t become too dominant and framed the main elements on my page.

Thanks for stopping by and remember if you want to see more examples of rainbow pastel effects head on over to the article here.

Curated Natural History for Get It Scrapped

Hi Everyone,

My daughter just loves bugs and has for years so this story was a perfect fit for a layout for the Curated Natural History blog post over at Get It Scrapped.  I used  different frames and items to create the look of a collection.  The embellishments and word in the frames adds to the overall look. I really enjoyed this topic and am pleased with how the layout came together.

It is story that I have been planning to tell for a fair while too but I would never have created it like this if not for the assignment.  So why not step out of your comfort zone and check out the examples from other members of the team here.  If the curated natural history look isn’t your thing there are lots of other articles that can inspire and challenge you.

Thanks for stopping by,
