This week the CT at Scrapbook Nerd has been challenged to create projects inspired by a color moodboard. The colors are vibrant and very summery, so i decided to apply them to a new layout all about one of our Summer Trips a couple years ago.
I started by adding a mixture of Blue Hawaiian, Saltwater Taffy and white paint to the background to bring color to the page. Once it dried, i used papers from the It's All Good -Dear Lizzy-, Saturday Afternoon -1Canoe2-, Flower Market -Carta Bella- collections to back and layer behind the picture, and attached it to the background with foam adhesive.
Cut outs from Handipaper were layered along the pictures, and then clusters of ephemera from the same collections were added to the picture. The title was created using chipboard stickers from 1CAnoe2 collection.
The page was trimmed on its right edge, and then the background was backed with a patterned paper from the Saturday Afternoon collection. A small cluster of ephemera was then added along this edge to complete the diagonal design of the page. A few enamel dots from various collections were added along the page. Here is the final layout
I love the simplicity and graphic design of the page. My choice to focus on the background so that it creates that soft shadowing effect on the page was key for this layout. The following video will show you how it all came together:
