I hope you are all well! Here today to share a fun birthday inspired page for D-lish scraps.
This one features Miss Caitlin on her 10th birthday which was in January of this year and I have yet to scrap a single photo!! We had a whole day of celebrations starting with some school friends at a local “Bounce Inc” trampoline play centre. This is a quick snap I took before we all got jumping, such fun!
I began this page by selecting out some key elements I know I wanted to use, such as the chipboard balloons and the cute yellow deer from the Resin Embellishments. I then decided to take the bright colours from these to make up the colour combo of my page. I wanted everything to be bright and happy for this one.
I started with a plain pale pink background so that the bright elements I added would really pop! First I began creating my photo mat, which consists of lots of layers of paper and a teal striped paper baggie. This one was a 5 x 7 bag, which I have simply trimmed to fit my photo mat.
Next, it was time to lock in the design of the layout, I started with my title as I knew it was going to be pretty large. That combined with the photo mat I had just made needed to be decided on before I went about adding the smaller details. I just laid everything out and shuffled until I was happy.
Next, it was time to get working on some embellishment clusters. I have positioned two wooden hearts to the left of my photo to start. I have used so many of these Wooden Hearts, they go with everything right?!# These have been painted with some Colour Blast Water Colour Shimmer cubes in “Sunshine”. I then created a larger cluster to the right of my photo and another one towards the top of the page. To decide these, I just tried to balance out the balloons, the title and my photo.
I’ve also used some Jewelled Cabochons – these are super cute and that pink/purple colour is divine! Once I was happy with the clusters, I added a few splattered drops of watered down white paint just to soften the harshness between that super clean pink background and the embellishments. Now was also a good time to add the final touch, some .
I’ll leave you with one more close up of all the paper layers and that cute little deer!
I’m sure you all have photos of birthday celebrations yet to scrap, so I hope this layout inspires you to pull them out.
