Happy Monday everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Don’t you just love patterned paper with large life-like quality graphics on them? Full image graphic patterned papers, such as those from Paper House Productions are so stunning I am almost afraid to use them with my photographs. I find that I just want to put the paper with the beautiful graphic images, without anything on it, in my albums! They are so gorgegeous and at the same time can be intimidating! The Creative Scrapbooker Magazine team has fallen in love with the Delish Collection from Paper House Productions.
A few weeks ago Tracy McLennon also created a layout featuring this gorgoues collection of patterned paper with LARGE graphical photo quality images on them – CLICK HERE to see Tracy’s creation.
Here is what I created with a few different pieces of patterned papers from Paper House Productions Delish collection. Check out those amazing graphic images.
The secret for me is to keep it simple: put my pictures on the “white space”, layer titles and add texture. On this layout I placed my photos on the “white space” on the side of the paper. I kept my title centered tightly and I layered it over both the photo and the image on the paper. This created a flow on the page. I wanted to create some dimension and texture so I cut the paper in strategic little spots. I tucked the photo of my husband under a cut line on the top border and around the red pepper. I cut out basil leaves from another piece of paper from the collection and then I tucked them into a cut I made on the lemon.
I used some Ranger Glossy accents to create dimension on the salt and peppercorns too. I can’t seem to create a layout without using 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, they are underneath the basil leaves, and photo of the food. This layout came together really quickly and it’s so “delish”!
Happy Scrapbooking Everyone!
