If you want to add instant energy and movement to your scrapbook page, try experimenting with angles as Lindsay (bessysue581) did in the cool page we’re lifting this week. I love the vibrant colors Lindsay pulled from the cute photo of her son; and the bands of angles provide homes for her title, journaling, and all sorts of fun brushwork and word art. Liz, Wendy, and I had a blast taking inspiration from Lindsay’s page.
Liz (lizziet5) put a beautiful black and white picture of her daughter front and center and backed it up with angled bands of soft-colored paper in diamond shapes. I love the way she divided her title on either side of her design, and she chose her accents perfectly.

Wendy (wendymck) also used a photo of her daughter who recently attended AIM Week at the United States Coast Guard Academy. Wendy’s blue, orange, and gray color scheme is spot on and does a great job complementing her photo. I particularly like that band of blue stars.

I was inspired by Lindsay’s design to tell the story of my out-of-control mug collection, and I had fun running with the red, white, and blue color scheme to add those energizing angles. I thought the central stripe was the perfect spot to add my journaling.
