White on White Layout

Hello,

Today I’m bringing you a layout I made for this months challenge over on the UK Scrapaddicts Blog which is a layout with a photo (or I guess photos) of 6×8 or larger.

My photo is our first holiday away with our son who was around 21 months at the time to Iceland. Which I would very much recommend to anyone. It’s a beautiful country and really set up for the under 5’s and he had a blast!

The was taken at the Skagofoss waterfall on our way to the glacial lagoon. We went at the end of October and most of the day it was snowing except for the 30 minutes we were here where the sun was shining and got this beautiful rainbow in front of the waterfall. Of course we had to stick my son in front of it, this was literally the only time he would let us put him down!

I’ve been really enjoying the recent white on white style of layouts – using texture rather than colour. I tend to like a lot of busy patterns and colours so keeping it simple was quite hard for me. The photo was was quite dark and using the plain colours really made my son stand out in the photo.

I cut out a few sizes of flowers from my silhouette onto white card and added some sequins, gems and punched flowers to create 2 clusters of embellishments on the diagonal. I had a very limited amount of white letters so ended up with the title of unique view. I usually include space for journalling but I know the other side of the 12×12 page will be a pocket page for photos and journalling and thought it looked better without,

Hope you like my layout and have fun with this months challenge 🙂

 

Christmas recycling

Happy New year! This layout I did a bit of recycling from making my crackers. The leftover diamond shapes I thought I could use so stuck them down into snowflake type patterns. In the photo they look pretty card but in real life they are a very light pearly white. The snowflakes I made so I didn’t waste the glitter cardstock while making my personalised name tags.

I tried to keep quite a neutral colour scheme here just grey and white and included a see through bag I got from a studio calico kit in the background to hold my journalling.

I stamped a little bit in the background to give a more textured look and added on the sparkly snowflakes into my layered photo.

Hope you like it!
