Back to scrapping...

My focus has been well and truely on cards for a while so I thought it time to get back to some scrapping. I have been inspired by some lovely layouts on my friend Cal's blog

It's been a couple of years (yes really that long!) since I last did a layout so looking at the 12 x12 page this morning gave me quite a fright I can tell you.

I have had some old photo booth photos of my Dad and I on my desk for quite a while so decided to give them a proper home today.

 This is the finished page. I found a basic page layout and added my own twist. The colours are Basic Black and Naturals Ivory for the main panels with Bravo Burgundy, Baja Breeze and River Rock as the accents. The Colour Coach came in handy when looking for colours to go with Bravo Burgundy.
 A close up of the circles. Punched from 3 different sized circle punches in the accent colours and placed randomly in the top right corner.
 I'm not a lover of 'white' space so the Spritzer Tool came in handy to add a bit of interest to the page. Do this before you stick the circles down so they stay clean of 'splodges which helps them to stand out even more.
 I used the larger of the tags to tuck behind the page for some hidden journalling. To stop the tag getting lost I tucked the page into the tag. I also created a little pocket using double sided tape to stop it slipping down completely which you can see below.
  I hope you enjoyed peeking at my foray back into scrapping and hopefully I will have lots more to show you soon.
