Saturday Scraplift: Tearing Up a Design

You know me and torn edges. I can’t resist them, so it’s no wonder that this delightful page by Audrey (adrianita) drew my attention. I love the pastels that mimic the dyed Easter eggs and the pops of black that always seem to finish off a well-designed page. Lori Ann, Liz T, and Erin were eager to join me in lifting Audrey’s page. Here’s where the inspiration took us.

Audrey’s page:

Lori Ann (lmaggs) scrapped a meeting between her granddaughter and the Easter bunny. I really like the twist she employed by angling her torn strips of spring-colored papers to provide homes for her sweet photos. And the bunny ears sticker is just too cute!

Liz T (lizziet5) also went with an Easter theme and used a photo of her grandson checking out his treat-filled basket. She rotated Audrey’s design to emphasize her photo and used her signature soft hues. I love the visual triangle of bright blue, inspired by those bunny ears.

Erin’s (Ernie88) torn paper, angled design puts her adorable photos front and center, as they should be. She chose an Easter-y, springy color scheme, accompanied by bold, black brush work to emphasize the sweet relationship between her children.

I adhered very closely to Audrey’s wonderful design but adapted my color scheme to complement the photo of our delicious Cherokee Purple heirloom tomatoes. I incorporated touches of black in the splatters, the clip on the photo, and my title.

How are you going to include some torn edges in your design? There’s no end to how versatile they are, so I’m excited for you to “tear up” the gallery with your lifts – lol! Remember to post your page in the Saturday Scraplift Challenge Gallery as well as in the May Challenges Sign-in thread in the forum. Happy scrapping and Happy Mother’s Day!
