Telling My Scrapbook Page Story with a Venn Diagram

I love the visual storytelling that occurs on a scrapbook layout, so for this page I turned to a popular info graphic design, the Venn diagram, to tell my tale. This page is about the birth of our granddaughter. The interlocking hearts contain the names of our daughter in-law, son and granddaughter in a color scheme that echoes their union with a union of color. When red and yellow combine they make orange, thus our granddaughter's name is in orange.

I used my Silhouette to cut out three sets of hearts and layered them on the page for a tone-on-tone effect with dimension. The title and date are cut out of the white cardstock and backed with black cardstock. The names are letter stickers from Jillibean Soup. I thought I would embellish the page, but just fell in love with the simplicity and left it alone.

You can see what the rest of the Get It Scrapped! Creative Team did in the full article.
