This is a layout featuring my grandson at various ages. The bottom two photographs were altered using a programme called 'Photofunia' which is a Android app but is also available on the web.
The photo on the left was converted to black and white then I used the app to make it look like it was on canvas. The photo on the right was converted to look like it has been done as a sketch. There are many different options to choose from and would recommend you try it out.
My main jumping off point for this layout was Scrap it with a Song with current challenge of using the song 'Take my breath away' by the Berlin. I used the words - MY LOVE as the title of my layout.
I also used a colour prompt from Colours Stories Inspiration - Case File No.7. It's great for getting you to use colour combos you might not ordinarily think of.
Choose two (or more)of the following elements to include on your layout:
- wood or wodgrain (could be paper or embellishments)
- an element to hold things, like an envelope or pocket
- stripes (as inspired by the watermelon)
- cluster similar items together
- combine straight lines with organic shapes (i.e., shapes with curves)
Choose one (or more) of the following to inspire your journaling:
- 3-2-1: 3 most important things, 2 questions you have, 1 word to sum up the story.
- Use all your senses in your journaling.
- Grocery list: Journal in the form of a list.
- The roots: What is the origin of the picture or what's underneath the story?
- Inspiration Words: natural, vital, root.
