From Paper to Page
Browsing my stash for a little something different to work with, I found this decorative paper as part of a paper pack I bought probably 2 years ago. I trimmed out the top of the scalloped paisely intending to cut it up and and use it on cards. Then I thought this would make a really neat scrapbook page if I used some of the circles to hold photos. It turned into a fairly quick page.
Typically I pick papers to fit my photos but this time I went in search of photos to work with a paper. The most important design decision for me is getting papers, embellishments and ink colors that communicate the feelings from the photos. I love how the vibrant colors reflect how much fun it was to have Dillon and Nai Nai visit us last summer. So much of my scrapbooking is about our travels, hiking and such, that it is a refreshing change to get to use a bold paper for a scapbook page.
