Hi there! We have a super cute scrapbook page to share with you today from design team member, Jessy! She used one of my very favorite papers from the new Carousel collection and I love how she layered so many fun things on there to make it super fun and magical at the same time! Also her sweet daughter is pretty cute and fabulous too!! Read on for all the tips on making such a darling scrapbook page!
Hello crafty friends! Super excited to share with you a layout I created with Maggie’s latest collection, Carousel! I absolutely love all the fun little pieces and patterns you can find in this collection. It is so pretty and whimsical at the same time.
I chose this really beautiful piece of patterned paper called Magical as my background. And as always to tone anything down, I will spread some gesso and splattered gold mists all around. I do this just to keep the background subtle and let other elements shine. Next, I adhered the photo right in the middle and beginning to work my way from the top to the bottom, in a diagonal pattern. Adding the white paper doilies and white thread sure added more textures to the layout! I chose a monochromatic photo so that I could surround it with tons of fun colors. It was intentional. Sometimes with a little planning that will definitely help with the creative process.
I always love including chipboard stickers on my projects. The dimension is just perfect! And that unicorn seriously captured my heart and eye!! Perfect addition! The black & white stripes really gave the contrast that I needed among all the beautiful colors.
