Saturday Scraplift: Building a Background

Good Saturday morning! Wendy here, hoping you are all enjoying a great weekend! This week’s lift is provided by Irene (Scrappie Irene) who made this precious page that just screams summer to me! Love the colors, love the happy photos and what really caught my eye was the great use of background brushes that give lots of dimension to the page. As always, feel free to take inspiration from anything on the page, but I know what will inspire me. 😉


Have a few pages to give you some more inspiration. Up first is Julie (MaggieMae) with a cute Krispy Kreme page.  She was inspired by the framed page, the paint brushes and the sewing hole brushes as well as using a soft color palette. I really love the banner!

Valerie (nana_vg) went with a cool monster truck boy vibe for her page. She also framed her page, used grid and paint background brushes.

Up next is Jana with her happy summer page of these 2 cuties. She totally embraced the “build a background” with lots of great brushes. She also kept with a similar color scheme. I just love this!
