New Scrapbook Layout w/ Color Splash the SG Paper Collection

Today I've got my second layout to share using the Debbie Sanders / SG paper collection, Color Splash.


You can find the whole Color Splash collection here.



If you've seen the full collection you know that it's a bright rainbow of colors, but I decided with this layout to only pull a few of those colors together - blue, yellow, and green.


I thought the blue background paper was perfect for a boy layout and when I decided to use these photos of Drew rockin' out on a guitar an idea popped in my head. I wanted to try to create a background that looked like the reactive lights you see in recording studios or sound equipment. I'm sure there is an official word for those, but I have no clue what it is!


To create those, I cut out 1" strips and then cut those into small 1/4" pieces.



Then I arranged them in columns at varying heights on my layout. A little "cheat" was to adhere my photos first, and then add the 1/4" pieces so I wasn't wasting time with areas that are going to be behind a photo.


It looks like a lot of work, but it actually came together much faster than I was expecting. There is only one full strip, to the left of the photos, so the rest were just a few of the 1/4" pieces.



To finish the design I added some stitching, a few music notes, word/phrase cut outs and stickers, and the star cut outs.
