It’s been a whole week since The Studio Challenges cybercrop, and I’ve only managed to complete one layout, though I have a few others I’d like to get done. I used the 11am ‘In the Frame’ challenge for this layout (you can see details here). I’m always a fan of Lisa’s pages so it was fun to try and emulate her style, in my own way (click on photo to see it larger):

I love this photo, but hadn’t got round to scrapping it because the colours in our coats and scaves all clashed a bit. Painting a frame was a good solution, as I could mix a colour to match my scarf and it draws attention to the pic without being too bold or taking over the page:

I hadn’t planned to put anything directly under the photo, but I managed to get a smear of white acrylic paint there and wanted to cover it up. I love it when mistakes end up being inspiring – I like how it ended up with a bit of scalloped card and a cream heart sticker in the bottom left corner of the photo.
We’ve been to the beach again this morning, and little one is just having a nap. Hopefully I’ll squeeze in some more scrapping time this evening! xx

  • I’m a big fan of paint on pages and I love how using it helped you to colour coordinate your layout. It’s a lovely photo and well worth the effort of making it look good 🙂
