Creative Team Spotlight Scraplift: Pam Patterson

Our custom here at Designer Digitals is to use fifth Saturdays to spotlight one of our own Creative Team members, and this time it seemed fitting to honor our friend Pam Patterson whose recent passing saddened all of us. Pam and her husband John owned a family ranch in Montana, and her pages about their ranching life were an education about the sturdy stuff of which ranchers are made. Her love for her two sons and their families also filled her pages, and no one was a prouder grandma than Pam. Our three guest CTs were quick to volunteer to lift Pam, and I know her gallery will be a special treat for each of you. Here’s how Deborrah, Mirjam, and Kelly were inspired. 

Pam’s page:

Deborrah was inspired by Pam’s blended photo and the twist that highlights it. She also incorporated the simple and grungy background to keep the focus on her photo.

Pam’s page:

 I love that both Pam’s and Mirjam’s pages were inspired by photos of the beach. The cool blues are perfect, and I really like that sketchy brush on Mirjam’s page with the sea in the background.

Pam’s page:

The page of Pam’s that Kelly chose featured a sunrise – Pam photographed some awesome landscapes! Kelly’s page features the sun at the end of the day, and she used warm yellows and oranges to highlight it.
