When the fifth Saturday rolls around, you know what that means: we’re spotlighting one of our talented Creative Team members. This month, we’re turning the spotlight on Brenda (bbe). Browsing through Brenda’s gallery reminded me how creative and versatile a scrapper she is. She scraps single photos, multiple photos, and no photos equally well. Her excellent blending and extracting skills are well displayed on many of her pages. Two of my fellow team members and I enjoyed looking through Brenda’s pages to choose one to lift. Here’s how we were inspired.
Merr (digigrandma) chose to lift Brenda’s ode to Erma Bombeck. I love the cascade of letters down the page and the way she incorporated the quotes about food. She anchored her page with careful attention to detail in the cute food accents. She also echoed Brenda’s page in the brushwork on her background. Now I need to go eat some chocolate!

Anke (anke) selected Brenda’s page about a walk by the river as her inspiration. She coordinated the colors of her page as Brenda did with stitching and a strip of patterned paper. There’s room for the title and journaling in the sections of the strong design, and I love how they both chose pictures of the great outdoors to tell their stories.

I can hardly pass up a grid design, and I was immediately attracted to Brenda’s use of the grid to showcase a cute mud-stained face. The cute face I featured is my grandniece Savannah. I also liked the banner in the middle and the slightly messy brushwork that contrasted with the order of the grid. We all need a little chaos, right?
