Hey Everyone! I hope you had a great Monday. I decided to make a quick scrap layout. So, that meant a 8.5" x 11" design. When scrapping, I'm usually inspired by the photo and select that first. I usually edit it to my liking, this time a black and white, then I come up with a sketch. After that, I am inspired by product to incorporate into the sketched design. This is my usual process probably for cards too (just realizing that as I type it out)! It's a pretty clean and simple layout. I like to keep the photos the focal point of my layouts because in my opinion that is the true reason for scrapping them. I really do not like to journal...yet. I like quick and simple titles, so this is how I did it...
- Adhere doily to cardstock.
- Add stitching.
- Die cut circle frame, then adhere to cardstock.
- Print photo, then adhere to cardstock.
- Add vintage trims.
- Add flowers.
- Adhere letters stickers for title and embellish with rhinestones.
