Hi there and HAPPY weekend!
Here I am today with a brand new layout that screams SUMMER! I would like to challenge you to use colors that don't represent SUMMER at all : no red, no blue, no yellow! On my layout, I used most Fall colors : brown, navy blue, cream. These are warm colors, yes, but combine with a bright and colors photograph, everything gets together and it works!
Swagger Humourous paper / Swagger Sticker Fundamentals / Swagger Label Stickers / Swagger Button Set / Swagger Clips / Swagger Patterned Enveloppes / Trendsetter Haute Paper / Trendsetter Strips paper / Trendsetter Banner Die Cuts / Trendsetter Label Stickers / Trendsetter Button Set / Park Bench Button Set / Adventure Set Stencils / Down by the Shore Tape Stickers / Down by the Shore Label Stickers
This Humourous paper from the Swagger line is probably one of my favorites. Though I'm not really into brown (this is a color I hardly ever use in my scrapbooks, I don't know why...), this warm, textured brown background paper was EXACTLY the same color as the soil on my photo! There I got my main background paper!
I simply mounted that Sienna brown paper on blue, to match the blue sky.
Then I needed a bold paper, to add a tiny bit contrast on my layout.
Once my design was done, I added a tiny bit of mists here and there on my layout and I was ready to add my title!
Don't forget to cluster embellishments together to help the eye focus on the photo right away!
Are you ready to use Fall colors to scrapbook a SUMMER photo? I can't wait to see! :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
