Saturday Scraplift: Layers of Goodness

It’s Linda with a page that I’m sure is going to inspire you for this week’s Saturday Scraplift. I’ll be the first to admit that layering goodies on my scrapbook pages is not a talent that comes naturally to me as it does to many of the creative geniuses here at Katie Pertiet Designs. Liz Toms (lizziet5) is definitely one of those geniuses. On this page, I love how Liz layered different mats, ribbon, foliage, brush work, and lots of other accents beneath the photo of her beautiful daughter. Her design makes for such a lovely page. Brenda and Jan, two of my Creative Team sisters, joined me in lifting Liz’s pretty page. This is how we were inspired.

Liz’s page:

Brenda (bbe) scrapped an adorable photo of her granddaughter and used a striking color scheme to make her page really pop. I love the mix of patterns that she chose for the mats and the botanicals she used to extend the outdoor theme of her picture. And I truly believe some black on a page elevates it to the next level.

Jan (jmgesi) chose an amazingly detailed photo of a spider and his web to highlight on her page. Her choice of varying shades of green is perfect for this nature-themed design, and I love the detail of the brads she used in her title. I can’t say I’m a spider lover, but they do underscore how intricate our natural world is, don’t they?

I was sorting through some photos my daughter-in-law had passed along to me when I came across this one of my granddaughter just before she went to have her senior yearbook portrait taken. I couldn’t let it go unscrapped, and it lent itself to this design so well. I love scrolling through my stash to find mats to layer under a photo and rearranging them for the most pleasing look – that’s the kind of layering even I can do!
