Different themes, same stack

by Karen Hanson | 8 months ago

Hi everyone!  This is Social Media Design Team Member Karen H. and today I wanted to share a project using a stack that is a bit out of my comfort zone but oh, so pretty! 

When I am crafting, I often find myself gravitating towards bright and bold colours.  But when I first caught site of the new Minty Lace stack available at AC Moore, I knew that I needed to create some layouts with these pretty papers.  Subtle colours and pretty patterns abound in this stack, and it seemed like a perfect fit for scraping pictures of my little gals.  

 

 

For both of these layouts, I chose a light pink 12x12 sheet in different patterns.  I loved the subtle pops of darker grey/brown, and used that to emphasize a few areas on the layout.  

 

 

 

The little tag featured here became the starting point for a message I wanted to write on this layout – that these two little gals really are my happiness.  

 

 

 

For both layouts, I wanted to experiment a little bit to see how I could create a focal point on the right side of the layout – choosing vertical lettering for one, and buttons and sequins for the other.  I like that both make the layouts seem anchored without using a bold contrast in the papers to really hold things in place visually. 

I have to admit that working in softer colours really does take me out of my comfort zone, but I sure am glad that I went this route for these pictures!  Not only did I really enjoy the challenge, but I think that it also emphasizes the moments  and stories captured in the pictures.  And that makes me smile!

 

 

Thanks for stopping by!
