Hello, It's time to catch up with my weekly post at the E-scape and Scrap blog. As I'm still scrapping on a vintage theme it will be no surprise that I used the lovely kit History Starts Now for my weekly page (Edit: which has now been retired). Catch up with the full article here: Scrapbook Diary 2015 Week 4.
Hello :) It's been another week of vintage style scrapping for me. I just love the whole vintage thing! The following layouts use old family photos and I just love them. The lady in my first layouts looks fantastic in her outfit and I just adore the hat. I used the amazing kit, History Starts Now, which is part of the Nifty Designer's series. It's due to retire soon so go grab it now if you like it :)
I was playing with negative space with these pages. I blended three papers together in the first layout and two in the second. Next I created clusters around the photos and then placed these clusters in the corners. I am hoping to experiment more with this style in future pages as I really like the look. Creating the right background is as important as the clusters and it took me a while to get it right, but defiantly worth the time :)
I'd love to see what you've been creating too so please feel free to share a link to your projects or pages in the comments, Natasha :)
Hello, three weeks gone in 2015 already. Before I know it, February will be here! Time is just flying by. I was having fun last week scrapping on a Vintage theme and here are a couple of vintage layouts that I created along with my weekly page. To catch up with my full post head over to E-scape and Scrap blog: Scrapbook Diary 2015 Week 3.
Have a great week scrapping and I'll catch up with you soon with another post, Natasha :)
Hello, I hope that everyone is keeping well and crafting lots :) This week I created a page for Daisytrail's Floral Alpha challenge and this week the letter is H and I choose Honeysuckle as my flower to scrap out of the three options given.
The magnifier made a perfect frame for my photo of honeysuckle that I took in the garden a couple of years ago. I processed the photo with Snapseed to give it a vintage look so that it would fit in with the page style better.
I blended a number of brushes into the background in the spaces just to add a little extra texture to the paper.
Next I wanted to add some journaling to the page and the two pieces of paper torn from a book were perfect for this. For the flower on the page "stuck down" by tape I used the colour burn blend. And the postcard finished off the rest of my journaling nicely. Finally I embellished with flowers, leaves and insects.
Hello :) I've been busy with a new project, a creative ideas post for Lynne Anzelc Designs blog. This post is one in a series that I am writing. Hop on over to Lynne's blog for the full article: Ways with Overlays 1, and here is the finished layout that I show you how I put together.
Created with the following beautiful kits by Lynne Anzelc Designs:
Hello, this week I've been scrapping "The Brambles" which is a favourite topic of mine :) This latest project is a portfolio containing some of the photos I've taken over the last two or three years. All the photos have been processed in Snapseed to give them a slightly vintage or grunge effect. I used the beautiful kit Pot Pourri by DigiFiddle Designs. Also today (Monday 5th January 2015 only) I am Featured Page on Daisytrail with my third layout :) It was a lovely surprise and really made my day!
This kit was just perfect for my portfolio. It's a versatile kit that contains many more embellishments and papers, with a mix of other items such as a teddy bear and a camper van too! And don't forget to check out the DigiFiddle Art Galleryfor more inspiration :)
On the front cover I blended a photo of African daisies into the background paper. I used the darker part of the page like it was the binding for the portfolio and added some embellishments. The camera was a perfect finish as the portfolio displays lots of photos that I'd taken :)
The second page I made use of a number of frames and the flower to embellish. The stamp creates a perfect "journal paper" in order to add notes to the pages. Lastly I created some mini flower clusters to just finish it off.
The third page I again used a number of frames. Two of these are masks and after adding the photo I blended them into the background paper using the overlay blend mode. Finishing off with some journaling.
The back cover, as for the front I used a paper that had a darker area that looked like binding. Layering up with a number of embellishments, photos in frames and a touch of journaling to finish.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating this little project and using this kit :) If you've been busy on a project and would like to share please feel free to add a link into the comments, I'd love to take a look :) Natasha
I love the vintage feel of the kits that I used to create these two layouts with. Perfect for a general all year round page for my wish list and with the addition of embellishments from the Christmas kit perfect for my week 1 page. Christmas is not over until all the cards are taken down on twelfth night! I had great fun creating these pages, layering up all the elements and finding a home for them all on the board!
