Today's post is an Easter themed layout made with the 'Abundant' collection. The photo is of my son & the Easter bunny taken on Easter back in 2017. It's one of the cutest photos I have of my son & had been wanting to scrap it for some time. The 'Abundant' collection provided that opportunity--plus it took me back to where I started with scrapbooking--which are good ol' fashioned layouts.
I hadn't done a layout in a long time. It felt refreshing to create one again. I added many bits & bobs, embellishments & Easter themed tid-bits to decorate my page. In my stash I had this mini nest complete with little eggs inside. I also used several fabric & mulberry flowers in colors that added a bit of 'pop' to my page.
The base of the page was made by tearing the designer paper diagonally. I ripped the paper with my hands in order to make the tear look as 'natural' as possible. I then distressed & inked the edges. The ink was a pearlescent dark brown ink that added a bit of shimmer to the edges. Peeking out from underneath is an 8" inch white doily.
The designer paper was then rolled up & is held in place with a dab of hot glue.
There's a bit of tulle tucked underneath the mini nest & as part of my journaling tag that 'softens' the look & feel of the layout.
Something else that I like to do is create these rolled up embellishments to further decorate my page. It's a way to add something different to a layout & also to use up any leftover scraps.
All of my layouts have some sort of journaling within them. I tend to figure out unique or different ways of storing the journaling. For this layout I opted to store my journaling in a small kraft envelope that is also part of the layouts' base.
The banner seen here was fussy cut from one of the 'Abundant' papers & adhered with pop dots in order to give it some dimension.
The splatters were made with black liquid ink from my stash & some jute string was added to add a bit of visual flow to the page.
Thanks for stopping by & I hope this layout inspires some of you to document those precious memories!
