Scrapbook Design Idea: Framing the Photos
A little over a month ago we wrapped up the Sketches w/ 4x6" Photos class/group. As always it was a such a pleasure to connect with scrapbookers and see all of the amazing creations during the 10 week class. I'll never grow tired of seeing how many unique layouts can come out of one sketch and there were so many awesome layouts in this group!
The layout below was from the first sketch of the class and my favorite to create.
Supplies used - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: Simple Stories; Heart cut files: Sweet Afton from the Silhouette Design Store #310559; Stickers: Simple Stories; Embroidery floss: DMC; Com- puter font: Golden Sketch
The sketch features a block of photos in the middle and there are three strips that lead to a cluster of embellishments.
Those strips and clusters work as a frame for the photos and create that visual triangle helping to bring attention to the important elements - title, photos, and journaling.
For my clusters I used a combination of hearts, flowers, words/phrases, and butterflies along with some hand-stitching on some of the hearts.
I also used foam adhesive throughout the clusters for some dimension.
This is one of those layout design concepts that I could see myself using over and over again!
