Scraplift - Sept 2012
« on: August 31, 2012, 11:17:09 pm »
Ok folks. I have a double whammy for you this month, a layout and a technique in one. I found this layout on Two Peas created by Fevvers.  Here is her own  explanation:

Every so often we are faced with challenging photos to scrap, and that is exactly what I encountered when putting together this page.

Last week my daughter snapped these blurry photos of my husband and me sharing a sundae and goofing around – just being us. Rather than let the fact that they are blurry photos (or that I'm wearing purple and he's wearing green) deter me from scrapping these, I let the “blur” become the inspiration for the journaling and the colors become the foundation of the layout.

To create the background, I misted a sheet of subtly patterned paper (from My Mind's Eye) with colors that are similar to what we are wearing in the photo. I then cut the 12 x 12 sheet into sections and reassembled it, not really worrying about being exact. I sewed around it, and then added a large square of vellum over it, to create a kind of “blur”, softening the impact of the color in the process. I built the rest of the layout upon the vellum, adding accents and using pink and aqua to bridge the gap between purple and green.

The journaling, which was inspired by the “blur” in the photos, reflects on how life can move by quickly, in a blur, but love can bring it into focus. I tucked additional journaling (a letter to my husband) behind the layout in a vellum envelope.




Your challenge this month is to scraplift this layout with or without the "blur" effect.
Have fun!!

See Below for sample.
