Inspiration, Scrap The Girls

“My Sister & My Best Friend” for Scrap the Girls June 2018

Hi Creative Friends,

June has arrived and I’m here to share the latest challenge for Scrap the Girls.  This month we are focussing on friendship and I thought I’d draw inspiration from one main image of the mood board and I’ve chosen the top left-hand one with the quote.

I had a couple of fun shots of my sister and I that I’ve been wanting to scrap for ages so I printed them out in black and white.  I was also inspired by the text “She’s my best friend” and that became the starting point for my title.

Now that the photo and my title ideas were locked in, I went about thinking about the design of the page.  I knew my title was going to be very long and needed to make sure it not only fit nicely on the page but featured in the layout design.  I saw this cute cut file from Paige Evans and thought I’d run the title along the banners.  I simply backed them with some pattern paper and stitched them into position.

Next, I placed my photo in the centre of the page along the edge of the top banner.  I have mounted with the same pattern paper as I’ve used in the banners, there is quite a lot happening already on this page so I thought a simple single photo mat in the same paper would be best.  It was also at this point that I locked in the position of each word in my title.

The layout was looking almost complete at this stage but I did want to add a few more embellishments.  I went with the 2 larger kites on the right-hand side of my photo and a smaller cluster to the left.  One more paper flower on the right-hand side of the lowest banner helped balance the design out.

Below you can see a close up of the cute chipboard kites – they fit into that spot just so perfectly.

And that is the page complete.  Super cute, quite simple and quick to make and I do love the end result.

Be sure to upload to the Facebook group for your chance to win a fab prize from our sponsors – I would love to see what you create!
