This week, I got to work on a layout for Made With Love. We just received prints from our wedding photographer and looking at the photographs really brings back memories of our actual wedding day. With these prints, it was time to start scrapping about them. So glad to be working with the latest Crate Paper's Good Vibes collection and the Vicky Boutin Embellishments from Amercan Crafts this time around.
To begin, I wanted to start working on layers in my layout. I chose a rather neutral background, a corkboard print and cut patterned papers from the collection, mixing up the colours and the patterns. Layering is key , so it is important to position your layers , stacking them one above and another while adding dimensions to the page.
With the embellishments, the principle remains the same ; layer embellishments above and under one another. A good trick would be to hide some of the elements partially under the papers, letting a portion of them to be seen. Some elements could be 'popped' up to create more dimension.
To make sure that the overall layout is cohesive, ensure that you choose embellishments that match the colour scheme , so that it doesnt deviate too much. In my case, I chose to stick to yellows, pinks and greens. Adding touches of golds, whites and blacks are good neutral alternatives to complete the look.
That is it for this week. Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed completing this layout. It was certainly good to be back scrapping and cant wait for the next break to do so.
Till then, have a good week ahead.
