Geometric fonts and Playing with Scale

Hi everyone,

Here is my post about the scrapbook pages that I created for Get It Scrapped. The first one is about using geometric fonts on your scrapbook pages.  The page I created was documenting my son learning to ride a bike without training wheels.  I used quite a simple composition with an interesting background page and used the colours in photograph for inspiration.  I used the geometric font because it reminded me of the spokes of the wheels and so supported my story.  Geometric fonts can provide a lot of interest to your page and suit some topics of scrapbooking.  I like to mix fonts in my titles so they are great for that technique. You can see lots of other ideas over on the Get It Scrapped blog here.


I, like many other scrapbookers love to take photographs.  Sometimes I like to play with scale in my photographs and this is one of my favourite photographs showing my two boys in amongst some tall trees.  I know that they won’t always be this little and so for me this is one way of capturing them the way they are right now.  For my page I took design inspiration from online photography galleries, and used a large photograph, neutral coloured patterned paper with neutral embellishments to make my photograph the dominant element on the layout.

The rest of the team had fun playing with scale, creating fun photographs with people in the foreground and then using those photographs on their pages.  Head on over to check them out.
