I’m here with another layout from the same event as the last post. This time, its my daughter and her daddy, my hubby.
I printed four pictures on the 4 x 6 photo sheet using my Canon Selphy again. I fiddled around with the layout until I was pretty happy with what I had.
The color schemes weren’t exactly the same as the previous layout, but they were still similar so I wanted to stick with browns. I had some patterned paper from a scrapbook set I received as a Christmas present a few years ago. It was from Costco and wasn’t a particular brand I am familiar with. I looked through the patterned papers and realized that several of them really matched the color scheme I was trying to achieve.
I came up with this basic layout.
The pages were 12 x 12 so I had to cut them down eventually.
Like the last layout, I didn’t have specific memories attached to these pictures other than this was part of her first visit to Old Town San Diego. So, I kept the journaling at a minimum.
I took a bit of that ledger paper from the last layout and cut it down to make it look less “ledger-y.” Then I found some sequins that matched the color scheme and added them to the top margin. I love my straight lines..
The empty space on the top right of the page needed something. I wasn’t sure if I wanted a title, or a few embellishments. I don’t own enough embellishments to make a proper “embellishment cluster.” So, that was out of the question. I tried to play around with a few stamp sets, but i just couldn’t find the right sentiments or configuration to make it look the way I wanted. Plus, I don’t own any other colors that could compliment the layout…
So, I turned to my DCWV Rub Ons from years and years ago. I found one that was a cute little saying AND in the right color scheme! Score!
I cut it down to shape, then I used some distress inks to give it more interest..
I put those black strips of scrap behind the journaling/titling elements because it needed a little extra “umph.” I figured the black would tie into the little bits of black that are in each of the pictures, so it worked out.
Lastly, I’m really glad I was able to squeeze in four pictures into this layout. I was thinking of doing the same thing I did with the previous layout, leaving three pictures small and one picture at the full 4 x 6, but I couldn’t figure out which picture to blow up. Overall, I’m really happy with the way that this layout turned out!
Here’s the full picture.
