Hello and Welcome to my entry for the Double Page Spread Challenge with Scrapbooking Global this month.
This was the page map we used for the challenge - I had to tweak it a little to accommodate my photos, but hopefully you can see the inspiration for my page.
I love joining in challenges for my scrapbooking because it really helps get me started on creating!! This group is great because we use all Stampin' Up! products!!
Usually I use the photos as my starting point for the colours and images I choose for my pages, however, for this page I wanted to use the Snowflake Splendor Paper and show how it can be used for things other than Christmas!!
The colours in the paper then lead me to the colours I've used for my page which are: Purple Posy for the page base, and then Mint Macaron, Pool Party and Highland Heather.
I wouldn't normally add flowers to a page about walking beside the river, but I really was using the page map as my inspiration, so I've used the lovely Bloom and Grow stamp set for the embellishment clusters,
and then the gorgeous tree from Life is Beautiful as my feature element on the right hand side. Underneath all the floral elements are some of the gorgeous Gold Foil laser cut specialty paper which I've flipped over to the white side.
I actually surprised myself and really love how soft and sweet this page is, and I think the softness actually makes the photos stand out!!
You might be able to see that under all the embellishment clusters, I've stamped the dotty images from the top of the tree - just to make it look a bit more artistic!!!
My final touch was some sweet sequins and ribbon details here and there.
