Saturday Scraplift Scrapbook Challenge: Reduce to Increase!

Sometimes, we can reduce to increase; our own Sam Ellis has made a page that demonstrates that principle.

By reducing the opacity of a portion of her stunning photo, she actually increases the effect of the lovely silhouette image of her daughter (and unborn granddaughter!) while also featuring the loving relationship between her daughter and grandson. A stroke of genius by our dear friend, I’d say!

I had fun using Sam’s technique to create this page featuring my DD’s choice of dessert to celebrate her recent 8th birthday.

Liz  was inspired by the beautiful silhouette effect of Sam’s photo. She also masked her photo with one of Katie’s new Toned Paint Masks, then used framing to emphasize the focal area of the image.

It’s a holiday weekend here in America. Wherever you are, I hope this weekend brings you special memories with family and friends AND the opportunity to scrap them! Consider taking inspiration from our Saturday Scraplift and creating a page to share in our Saturday Scraplift Gallery. Don’t forget that when you create your page using 100% DD supplies, it makes you eligible for credit in our rewards program! You can sign in on the July Participation Thread to earn your discount.
