Saturday Scraplift: Split Page Design
I love page designs that draw attention to the focal photo while adding overall interest. Liz T’s page (above) is just that kind of design. There’s no missing the adorable photo of her grandson which is enhanced by the split background, the monochromatic color scheme, and the well-chosen accents and embellishments. My fellow Creative Team members and I had a lot of fun being inspired by Liz’s page.
Shannon’s (shannonroller) lovely page tells the story of her home city of Vancouver over time, a theme she extends in her design by incorporating clock and map brushwork as well as the earthy neutral color palette. Her at-first-glance ordinary photo allows her to tell a much larger story.

Kate (OKate) scrapped a stunning black and white photo of her parents during their first year of marriage. Don’t they look like they’re having a blast? I love the drama she created in her design by her brilliant choice of the floral paper, those pops of red, and the well-placed word strips.

Kathy’s (blackkathy) use of a neutral background allows her cute photo to shine on her page. The stitched twist serves as a unifying device, leading the viewer’s eye from her photo to her clever title work, and her shadow work is fabulous.

I used Liz’s wonderful page practically as a template for my own. I converted the photo of my son and grandson to black and white and then had fun with shades of blue for the rest of the page. I took a cue from the text paper for my title to describe my grandson’s award.
