I have even included a few little tips that I use to create my pages.
My first page I want to share is a page I did using Romance novel with a teeny bit of Firefly. What I love about Romance Novel is the neutral colours. You can dress this range up with gorgeous bright flowers and embellishments or even add other paper ranges into it, as I did!
You can always be safe with adding lots of colour with Neutrals, right?
As you can see I add a lot of texture with different fibres and paints!
My next creation is using the Rondelle range. Now don't be fooled by the pinks and peach colours, it can be used for boys. I did however sneak in my favourite scrappy colour, teal!
As you would have noticed I use a lot of white cardstock. I have tried endless to use other papers as my background, but me and white cardstock just go hand in hand!
I add texture straight to the cardstock with some texture paste, shimmerz and the poppies and Peonies mask.
some close ups showing my texture and layers!
Now my last creation I want share with you is a page using Firefly! I love how whimsical this range is!
With this page I thought I share with you a little of my thinking process for when I create.
I generally ask myself 3 questions before I started creating.
First one being: Where am I drawing my inspiration from?
Now with this page, I have drawn my inspiration from the firefly range. I have created a background with the colours and a kind of whimsical feel to carry it through. Of course when I think whimsical I think fairies and butterflies. The Shabby chic resin Fairies where perfect!
My second question I ask is:
What message do I want to put across with my creation?
For me, this helps me decide on my colours, my mood I want to create and the embellishments I want to use. Now because I had decided on a whimsical page, I knew I want to create a page that incorporated fun and beauty. So I went with lots of Shimmerz dots and the hexagons representing the fun me and my sweet boys have! I also added pink to show the love and the beauty that my boys show to me.
My last question I ask is:
Is there texture and visual interest?
I am a huge texture paste and fibre kind a girl! My page is not complete with some gauze, bandage, twine, paint, and oodles of foam mounting tape. I also like to think about if I want my background, embellishment cluster or photo to be my visual point, that then helps me put emphasis on that error of the page. So this time round I want my photo to be the visual point. I then used a photo with eye contact and didnt surround it by to elements in order to keep it my vocal point.
So there you have a little insight into my creativity thinking.
I hope I have inspired you in some way and dare you get colour, texture, and layer mad!!
Happy days :)))
