Saturday Scraplift: A Bit of Blending
Happy Saturday! I hope this post finds you doing well. As I’m surrounded by over a foot of snow here in the Midwest, I was immediately drawn to this bright happy floral page. And after Katie’s awesome tutorial on “painting” brushes last week, I thought a bit of blending would be a fun SSL. If you missed her tutorial, you can find it on the KPD YouTube channel by clicking HERE. And now, without further adieu, I give you Kathy’s (Blackkathy) beautifully blended page! I’m a sucker for newsprint blended backgrounds and the vintage floral papers combined to really sell it for me. Then add in the stunning floral photo that is blended out of the frame and I was in love!
Lots of Creative Team members had a go at this one. Up first is Anke. I knew this would be right up her alley and she did not disappoint with her brilliant lift. Love the photo blend out of the frame and the soft palette is perfect. Such a great photo too!

Kate (Okate) was one of 2 people who went with a hot pink floral theme. I don’t believe you can ever have too many flowers, so I’m featuring both inspiration pieces. 🙂 Kate kept true to Kathy’s page in both subject and design. Love the subtle pink blended background and the sweet butterfly stamp on the photo frame.

Patsy (ptabbert) started this page a couple different times (can anyone else relate?) and ended up a bit farther from the original than she had planned. But that’s the great thing about the scraplift. You never know where it might take you. Personally, I love where she ended up. What a great travel page!
Valerie (Nana_vg) did a bit of photo blending and kept with the color scheme of Kathy’s page for her sweet baby announcement page.
Finally here’s Audrey’s (adrianita) lovely hot pink floral page. Love her pencil drawn floral brushes in the background as well as the stickered title. And of course the orchid is stunning.

Whew! That’s a lot of inspiration! Wonder where else this page will take people. I’m looking forward to seeing your pages in the gallery. Remember to post your lift in the Saturday Scraplift Challenge gallery as well as in the February Participation thread in the forum to count toward your rewards. Have a wonderful weekend!
