Saturday Scraplift Challenge: Split Image

Happy Saturday everyone! Ready for some weekend scrapping?

I have always loved the split image technique – the one where a single photo is split over more than one frame. So when I saw Rachel’s (Rache77) Hong Kong layout in the gallery I was drawn to it immediately. It is the perfect treatment for her photo of Hong Kong skyscrapers across the harbour. The subtle blending and brushwork set off the string of tiny framed images beautifully.

I love the way Rache has reduced the size of Katie’s Thin Classic Frames until they are so tiny that the frames have almost disappeared, but Katie’s brilliant curled shadows still lift them above the “surface” of the page making them visible. A trick you might want to try? It certainly gives a gorgeous fragility to the look of Rache’s page.

I’ve used Katie’s Classic Curled Frames which are thicker and give my page about Bush School a more robust look – more appropriate for a page about 6 year old’s playing in nature I think!

I also used a combination of Watery Photo Masks No. 13 and the ARTpack Arboretum Brushes, Stamps & Layers No. 02

I played a bit with using a 3D looking branch as Rachel did but decided in the end that my page was already busy enough. I have to admit I was dying to use something from one of Katie’s new Curated Branches Packs.

Of course repeated Photo Frames are just one way to achieve this split image effect.

You may like to try some Filmstrip Frames:

Or some Coin Holders:

Or some Hinged Frames

Or if you really love those Thin Classic Frames, Set No. 03 has one with multple openings that might work for you.

I hope Rachel’s lovely page inspires you to some creative scrapping this weekend.

Happy Scrapping everyone!
