    July Colourful Slow Scrap

    Hmmm... I am torn between the green door and the brown door. Mikelle - for clarification do you mean that one paper needs to be a single background with no blending of other papers? I was a little confused.

    Help Me With A Layout - I'm Stuck

    Everyone was so helpful with my "stuck" dilemma for the peonies layout! I hope others take advantage of this thread for LOs that are giving them fits for one reason or another. This will be a wonderful resource for individuals and their scrapbook projects.....😊

    I think I just gasped out loud! What a stunning page. Love the blending and the embellishments in the corner. I also like how you placed the title work right in the middle. I almost never do that....now I'm thinking.... Great inspiration page. I see some ideas very worth lifting....

    Beautiful, Jane! Love the colors and the fonts. As an aside, my son recently traveled to Ecuador and I offered to make him some scrapbook pages because you have so inspired me with your travel pages. I got a VERY lukewarm response. LOL.😂

    This is beautiful. I like the way your line-drawn embellishments match the photo treatment.

    Thanks docsheila - no photoshopping there - that is the actual color of the plants! Matched perfectly with the turquoise embellishments.

    Help Me With A Layout - I'm Stuck

    Thanks for all the input, everyone. I used several suggestions, including placing the text on a diagonal, not fighting the background by using a brush in a similar color (I always go light and it never looked right, so thanks for that tip Anne-Marie). I played with colored text, but ultimately decided not to fight the white. Adding the black and white corner flowers plays off the 3D white and black text in a more subtle way than the frame with the colored embellishments. I also played with different text box shapes (i.e. long and narrow, tall and narrow, square), but finally settled on this one due to the fact that the center part of the background didn't really have peonies peeking through the overlay in that section. I've spent entirely too much time on this single LO, but this is an important story for the wedding album, and I wanted to get it looking right. Thanks so much everyone - I do think it looks better!

    Here are the photo and word art added. The quote is adapted from a love letter between the couple. Awwww.

    Help Me With A Layout - I'm Stuck

    Everyone has been so helpful. I definitely need to move in the direction of deleting the frame, angling the text and making it brushing behind it in some way. Let me work on these suggestions a little today or tomorrow and I will post the results here in this thread. Thanks for the great suggestions! Interesting that everyone began to have a little "group think" - so helpful!!!

    Down to the Waterline

    Pretty textures everywhere! Love the linen/burlap texture on the paper, the crackle and the brushes. Great colors, too.

    Neat photo and blending. That text is amazing! How did you do that?

    Help Me With A Layout - I'm Stuck

    Hi! I recently finished this Wedding Peonies layout (go to text link for bigger version in the gallery), but couldn't figure out a way to include the extensive journaling without disrupting the colorful background or the angled photos and title work. I think the frame with the journaling is clunky and I am not pleased with where it is located. I am looking for some suggestions on how to deal with the large amount of journaling against a dark and busy background. This will eventually go in my daughter's wedding photobook. Any suggestions are appreciated!

    What an incredible fairy garden! I love how you have the shadowed paper blended into the bottom and use some more in a mask behind the image. Really nice blending work.

    I am using the neutral shades from the yellow beach photo, drawing from Spring Sherbet and Chasing Dragonflies Collections, and then blending with a shabby paper template.

    7 Months Old Hi Res

    Thanks MariJ. I really needed to change up these monthly photos taken and sent by my niece, which are all very similar with the blackboard showing the accomplishments. I think this worked pretty well!
