HERE & NOW - Scrapbook Nerd
This week the DT at Scrapbook Nerd is working projects that document Travels and Summer. I pulled the beautiful Sunny Days collection and a cut file from Handipaper to create a page all about my daughter's first trip to LA a few years back.
Lately, i have been loving non white backgrounds, this time I pulled a light blue cardstock for the background and added and extra splash of color (a bit too much, i think) using some white paint and Jane Davenport's Mermaid Markers.
While the background dried, i used a cut file from Handipaper to create the seashell wreath cut out for the page. I backed each image with papers from the Maggie Holmes' Sunny Days collection, and even added a bit of extra color to some of the images using the markers.
Once the background was completely dried, i used a bit of foam adhesive to attach the cut out to the layout. The pictures were then backed with pieces from the large alpha cards from the collection; these too were attached to the page followed with a series of fussy cut shells and embellishments.
I clustered most of the embellishments at the lower part of the page surrounding the pictures. Then added the title of the page at the top of the wreath. I wanted to mark the location of the pictures in the page, so i used mini alphas at at the end of the seashell cluster. I made sure to leave plenty of empty space under the title for my daughter's lines of journal. Here is the final layout:
Love how this page came together, and all the colors in the page. I am sure my daughter will cherish this page, and will be able to add her memories on the page.
