Scrapbooking with a Big Circle Pattern

Here's a recent scrapbook layout made by combining trendy big circles with mixed media scrapbooking supplies and my Silhouette. The page is about our vacation this past summer. Right now there's several inches of snow on the ground, so I need a little beach fix.

I die cut the circle frames with my Silhouette and painted them with watercolors. This technique wraps the photos in the warm colors of sunshine and sets a fresh summer mood for the page. Embossing paste and enamel dots create a subtle visual triangle around the circles. The washi tape behind the title helps it stand out on the page.

Glitter, Sparkle and Shine on a Scrapbook Layout

Cold, grey November days are on the way, so why not counteract that with some glittery gold that is such a popular scrapbook trend right now? That's exactly what the team over at Write.Click.Scrapbook.!  did with the November Gallery theme: Glitter, Sparkle, Shine.

This layout takes me back to warmer weather and our summer vacation. Life is so good at the beach, and I wanted to capture that joyfulness with glitter, sparkle and shine! I painted a background band with ocean blue watercolors, then sewed and layered over top. You can find more inspiration from the rest of the team right here.
