My first task as a Scrapbooking Memories Master was to create a layout using a Studio Calico Pack called CarolinaMoon. I love these challenges. The pack contained a range of papers and embellishments but to my surprise there was a lot of black and white. In a way this was good – black and white can be made to work with any colour.
I had a few photos that I wanted to use and my first thought was great I can make them work. Especially as in the photo my daughter is wearing a black and white striped shirt. I was happy with the layout I created until I embellished it and then I felt that it was not “Master Worthy” so I set about creating another layout.
What do you think?
The second attempt… This time I used one of my favourtie photos of my daughter. I recently won a Jot Magazine Heidi Swapp Memorydex competition where this photo was scrapped by the amazing Petra Corcoran. I actually have a few photos from that day printed in both black and white and colour for scrapbooking but I hadn’t found the right inspiration.
I went with a black and white photo and took inspiration from the triangles on one of the patterned papers. I added some paint to some texture paste and put that through a stencil. I wanted to use a colour other than pink as I find myself always reaching for pink when I scrapbook the girls. Plus the teal matched a Charms Creation Heart that I had in my stash.
