Page Makeover: old summer layout made new

Good morning . . . it is Mollie aka readstoomuch  introducing a new challenge for today.  For this week’s Page Makeover challenge, we are taking an older summertime layout that you would love to update and giving it a bit of a facelift. Using at least two products from the store . . .and,  if it works, use one older product and one newer product.   (I am checking out the wonderful products put into the store during the month of July and found a couple of item, which I could use.)  I had lots of help from the Creative Team with makeovers of their pages.

Brenda aka bbe went back to 2012 to find “Celebrating Green” which needed only minor changes. I love that Brenda used the yellow elements to breath new life into this layout! The bright vribrance of Brenda’s update really looks wonderful.   Brenda’s older layout is on the left.

Supplies used: Collageable Layered Templates No. 04, Clean Clusters and Parts No. 02 Brushes and Stamps, Vintage Charm Clusters, Botanical Artistry Clusters No. 02, From My Bookshelf No. 02 Element Pack . . .Makeover additions: Autumnal Artistry Element PackVintage Edge Overlays No. 02, Blendable Layers No. 36 (recolored, used as shading and blending 2015)



Liz aka lizziet5 said: “I’d changed my mind about all the colour on my original page (I’m brights-challenged!) so I was delighted to be challenged into giving it a makeover! I’m so much happier with it now!”  I must say that I love both versions, Liz!  The older layout is on the left side and the makeover is on the right side.

My own layout really goes way back . . . to June of 2007!  Mine was a makeover, which I really needed to do. This one was 8” x 10” and my books now are square. Also some of the layers were merged and I couldn’t find the original photo to use in the makeover!   My older layout is on the left.

Supplies: Neutrality Paper Pack, Revival Paper Pack Additions for new layout: DoodleDo Flourishes No. 02 Rub Ons, More Love Brushes and Stamps and Painted Photo Masks No. 10 (coming soon).
