Today being “Focus on Photos”day was the perfect opportunity to scrap a selection of everyday photos. These eight, were captured from a typical store visit when the children were younger. Mundane was never an issue for us when when needing to buy groceries…these two were always up to some sort of mischief. I am so happy with my choice to freshen up this multi photo page by printing them in 2” square photo strips.
Extra Special . Happy . Family Time by Kim Watson
Using the fun April kits, I selected orange, yellow & pink accents, that when placed on the Elle’s Studio patterned paper, created a soft ombre effect. Notice how I followed the vertical pattern on the paper when laying out the page elements? It gives the page a fabulous graphic feel. By laying vellum strips on the base page along the stripes & attaching them with zigzag stitching and placing embellishments in little clusters, I was able to soften things nicely.
Looking for a great way to add visual interest? Try positioning rubber charms, sticker labels, wood veneer accents and resin badges in horizontal positions off the photo strips, like little flags, breaking the obvious vertical lines.
A mixture of hand written journaling, pre-printed text from the Pinkfresh Studios washi pack & typed text…really mixes things up for even more page interest. Everyday memory keeping doesn’t have to be ordinary. Try my idea of B&W photo strips for a fresh take on multi photo scrapbooking.
