Scrapbooking with Red

The Get It Scrapped! assignment: Make a scrapbook page with the color red. Wonderful! Red is one of my favorite colors, both to wear and use on a layout. But working with red can be tricky. Since the Ohio State accent wall in the photo is hard to ignore, I decided to use this color in a rather dramatic fashion on my page.

Design Notes

  • The red in the photo and chevron patterned paper draw the eye to the focal point. 
  • The banners and embellishments highlight the title, then lead the eye down to the journaling strips, creating a diagonal flow.




You can see what the rest of the design team has done in this article. There are seven layouts for more inspiration!



Is red one of your go-to color choices or do you find it a bit intimidating?
