Saturday Scraplift: A soft transition

This week we are lifting a very pretty page by Jaycee from Australia:


As well as the delicate, pretty colors what caught my eye with this page was the way the brushwork is used to “extend” the photo to create a soft transition between photo and page. Or maybe you’ll be inspired by the design, using opposite corners of the page.

Melanie ‘flipped’ it and went with a black and white photo on a patterned background, with this adorable result:


Credits: Booked Blue Botanical Kit, Corby Artsy Painted Accents, Gesso No.02, The Story Title Brushes, Like This element pack, Vintage Photo Frames No.23

Esther used it for an eye-catching titlepage, combining bold color with a black and white photo:

coverBk2v3Credits: Blendables Layered Template No.50Frosted Fun Solids, Going Away element pack, Spackle No.01, Thin Classic photo frames No.2, Watery Spots No.15, Layered Memories 163.

Which, in turn, shamelessly inspired me to scrap a titlepage for the travel album I am working on – of our winter trip to London.

New iTunes Inspiration Challenge

Can the images from iTunes inspire you to scrap? You bet they can! Every month we choose a music cd cover/film poster/tv series poster from iTunes and use it as a great starting point to create new scrapbook pages, Taking it as a absolute guide or using one part of it ‘somehow’ on our page, its become a fun way to jump outside our box of usual style.  This month I found this CD cover image –


and knew it was a scrapbook page in the making!

Katie has made a great freebie you could use too – check it out here.
The Creative Team rustled up brilliant pages, as always showcasing just how different you can make it;

Earlofoxford has come up with such a beautiful wedding page, looks like it should be the cover of their wedding album doesn’t it?
mrandmrs3Liz finished a strikingly bright pumpkin page, and cleverly combined two photos so it looks like just one;

I had an awful lot of very similar photos from our recent school break to scrap. Its been such special fun week of riding that I wanted to save the memory without 20 similar pages! So this way I used a bundle of photos on one page and managed to add enough journaling to say what happened without overpowering the pictures;
ituneshalftermwebHope you have an idea brewing by now! Be sure to stop by and leave some love on the creative teams brilliant examples and make sure you place your own page in the special iTunes gallery, Look forward to seeing them!

Saturday Scraplift: Pieced together

Hiya, are we all ready for another Saturday Scraplift? This week I’ve chosen this page by Kelly (wsprite_ad). I liked the use of the hanging frame, with so many well-chosen elements. The brushwork helps to balance the page nicely.
