Saturday Scraplift: Add Some Drama to Your Page
Sometimes a little drama can be a good thing – as in a scrapbook page. Karen (kaclink) infused her design with drama by several means. She drew the striking color scheme from the photo of her granddaughter getting ready to audition for a part in a play. The ripped edge of the frame immediately draws the viewer’s eye to her photo, and her choice of accents and brushes supports both her color choices and the subject matter of her page. The result is both cohesive and dramatic. My fellow Creative Team members Kate and Julie joined me in taking inspiration from Karen’s page.
Kate (OKate) takes the most wonderful photos of flowers and scraps them to perfection. The pinky-purple hues of those mums are pleasingly replicated in her choice of papers, and the brush work and word strip nicely balance the weight of her stacked and ripped frames. I also love the jaunty bow that holds in place the charm and tag to complete her design.

Julie’s (MaggieMae) page showcases a lovely fall photo, and she extends that theme with her selection of muted green papers enhanced with pops of orange. I really like the doily and card peeking out from behind the stack of photos, as well as those three perfectly positioned orange buttons and the cascade of leaves across the page.

The small town in which our church is located has a pretty downtown area, and every spring the wisteria on the pergolas shows off its finery. You know I love purple, and the colors in this photo inspired my page. While I used the purple shades for much of my page, I had fun incorporating bits of spring green and sky blue as well. And IMHO, there’s always room for a ripped edge.

You’ll find so much inspiration in Karen’s page, and I’m looking forward to seeing what you create. Remember to post your page in the Saturday Scraplift Challenge Gallery and in the October Challenge Sign In Thread in the forum. Happy scrapping!
