Mixing Patterned Papers

Hi everyone,

I love bright and colourful papers, especially when creating scrapbook layouts about my boys.  This page was created for the Get It Scrapped blog article about mixing patterned papers.

This page celebrates my my son at 5 years of age and the things that little boys often do.

I have used 3 different star papers on my page, plus two additional patterns. The tone on tone papers work well as the background layers.  The multicoloured paper with the larger stars provides additional colour inspiration for the layout and adds a base for embellishments but was only used in a small amount so it is not overwhelming.  The bright yellow and small star patterned paper provides the matting for the photo and was also used in a small amount due to the saturation of the colour yellow.

As usual, if you want to see more ideas for mixing patterned papers then head on over to Get It Scrapped.

Using contrast on your scrapbook page

Hi everyone,

Today I am here sharing a page about my son’s love of minions and using the technique of contrast on your scrapbook page.  You don’t really get a more striking colour combination than black, white plus one other colour (on this page yellow).  On this page I used the yellow and the colour in the photograph, plus the size of the word Stu-art to focus the page on my title and the cute photograph.  The pops of yellow around the page move the eye and draw attention to the main parts of my page.

Over on the Get It Scrapped blog you can see a mix of paper and digital pages that also make use of contrast.  There is a mix of bold and also subtle examples with pretty backgrounds and even a great video too so head on over here.

Stu-art
