I was very productive this past weekend. In between some Christmas cards and other Christmas projects, I finished another layout for my Europe album. For this one, I used October Afternoon’s Woodland Park collection. I don’t often use pink in in my layouts, so I was excited that this collection complemented my photos enough to use it.
No sketch for this one. I wanted the photos front and center, so I aligned them side by side so they would run the length of the page. I added in some older flowers from my stash. In general, I find bigger flowers are hard to actually use on a page. Knowing that I wanted to include this larger flower, I situated the journaling and the title cluster to accommodate it.
After everything was down, I added some paint splatters. As much as I love all the mists that are out there on the market, I find myself diluting acrylic craft paints more often now. (And it’s budget friendly option!) I have a good selection of paint colors and haven’t had any trouble finding a perfect match to whatever layout I’m working on.
This is the second layout about my gondola ride (here’s the first from awhile back), but I still have a number of photos I want to include in this album. I thought about creating one more 2-pager with the remaining photos, but I just do not need another layout on this topic. Instead, I’m going to include a 6×12 photo insert with the remaining photos. I like the variety the insert will add to the album.
Other: Petaloo and Prima flowers, OA 12×12 background paper and journaling card, pink acrylic paint, MLS Alphabet stickers.
What do you do with the extra photos that you don’t end up scrapbooking?
Thanks for stopping by today!
