Hey there, friends! Today I’m sharing a scrapbook layout inspired by a photo of flowers I took while on a drive one day last month. Purple is my favorite color, but one I don’t use often in my scrapbook pages. With this project, I was excited to draw inspiration from the purple flowers, and bring the color into my layout!
I started out by adding a base color that was the same shade of purple as the flowers in the photo, using craft paint. I was so happy that the floral patterned paper I chose to use to back my photos had the tiniest bit of purple in it, and the shades of pink were more on the purple side.
After backing my photos, I added them on top of the craft paint, both at an angle to add visual interest.
Using a mixture of chipboard alphas, puffy stickers, and die cut pieces, I created my long title across the top and bottom of the photos. I like that the title tells a piece of the story that the photos don’t - then I was able to elaborate on the meaning of the title in the journaling.
Once the title was in place, I did a bit of journaling and added the date using my roller date stamp.
To finish off the layout, I created embellishment clusters around the photos and journaling, along with added splatters of gold craft mist and a doodled border to tie everything together.
This layout didn’t take too long to create, and I love the way it turned out. Not only do I love the colors, but the mixture of pieces used to create the title and clusters makes each piece of the project really pop!
I hope this gave you inspiration for your next layout, and how you can tie in colors from your photos!
