'Dream' Layout

Lately I am loving black and white photos. No matter what paper choice or colors you use, a black and white photo always works on the page. For this simple layout I used one sheet of background and texture paper, then cut a scallop at the bottom of a mesh piece and added it on top.

Flower: I created the flower in the upper right corner by punching 2 circles of various sizes. Take a spray bottle and get each side slightly wet. Fold in all edges and allow to dry. Once dry, add a brad and glue to your page. This is an easy (and inexpensive) way to add a three dimensional element to any page.

Ribbon: I took ordinary black ribbon and using glue dots I turned it into a more interesting embellishment. I simply kept folding the ribbon back on itself and adhered each piece with a mini glue dot.

Even though the page is virtually colorless I find it very appealing and want to work more with gray-scale papers.

  1. Lisa, thank you for sharing your passion. You are truly an inspiration. Scrapbooking is something I wish I had time for...perhaps one day...trusting all is well!
