Scrapbook Layout - #ScreenCrushing -
|The layout was created for the upcoming Scrapbook Nerd on-line crop|
I have been asked to lend a hand in an on-line crop for Scrapbook Nerd. The theme is Back to Basics, so I decided to use leading lines as my subject for my layout and challenge.
First i picked three pictures of my teen son "taking care" of his cousin, these are a few of a series i took of them and it depicts how my son went from iPad surfing to watching the Minions movie within minutes, hence the title #Screen crushing.
The papers used come from Dear Lizzy's Serendipity collection. Since i wanted to use leading lines to highlight the pictures, i went ahead and cut around one of the papers that had this intersecting lines. I placed them pointing towards the center of the page, and attached them on the layout paper using some back hand-stitching.
|I tried to use matching embroidery floss to attach the chevron/arrow pieces to the layout|
Next I matted and layer the pictures using papers from the same collection, and in the same color combination of the leading lines. Before gluing down the pictures, I went ahead and added rub-on stickers (Heidi Swapp collection) between the two vertices of the chevron lines.
|I tried to keep all the colors within a determined palette.|
Since i did not want to take away from the leading lines and the pictures, a small cluster of ephemera was added to the last picture.
|I used the stitched hearts to continue with the stitched look of the leading lines.|
The title was formed using Heidi Swapp thickers and a large phrase sticker from one of her collections. In order to balance the piece i added the title on the opposite side of the ephemera cluster.
|By splitting the title into two words I can balance the layout.|
Finally i added the journal lines between the space created by the chevron lines.
I hope you are inspired to use leading lines in your next project.
See you soon.
