Saturday Scraplift: Layers + Brushwork

I love the look of layers and brushwork, but I wouldn’t consider them my strong suits. Maybe that’s why I’m drawn to a page that incorporates both of them well – Anke’s page, for instance. She created strong vertical and horizontal elements with her brushwork and layered papers beneath the photo of her son celebrating his sixteenth birthday for a well-designed page. Elisabeth and I had fun coming with our own versions of Anke’s page.


Elisabeth (lego) did a wonderful job using brushwork to ground her photos, and I really like how she was able to include additional photos to tell the story of guests arriving. The small cluster in the upper right is the perfect balance to the main part of her design in the lower left.

I was able to use one of my favorite colors to scrap some pictures of my granddaughter’s art work. If she’s involved in an art project, there will probably be a cat in it somewhere. The photo of the bowling pin cat worked well in the tall narrow frame, and I used a mask to include a close-up of Katie.

Anke’s page is just full of inspiring elements, so I’m eager to see where it takes you. Post your page in the Saturday Scraplift Challenge Gallery and in the April Challenge Participation Sign-in thread in the forum.

Happy scrapping!
