Let’s go be Adventurers

Adventurers - dapfniedesign - title

I love the fact that there are so many possibilities, so many different design possibilities within the scrapbooking world. No matter which basic layout you choose – creating a visual square or triangle, a single focal point or a grid with elements aligned – most of the time it works. This time I’m not quite satisfied with the layout but it is how it is and I won’t change it. What is she talking about you might think – well: I’m OK with the rectangle as it is, but then I sort of messed it up with the visual triangle (the three embellishments clusters).

But it is as it is now and I won’t change it!

The photo is from Katja’s and Joerg’s visit last May. Although Katja is not totally in focus, I love the shot because it shows the movement very nicely. We were on our way around the Isle of Portland. They are both still smiling as we are at the beginning of our walk – soon I will scrap the photos when we arrived back at the car hours later.

It got really nice colours and bold patterns which I like tu use at them moment. I also found more of 5th & Frolic and Neapolitan – very nice papers and maybe soon on this blog!

Have a good week my crafty friends! x

  1. I think it is wonderful. The colours, the layout, everything. I am also partial to a polka dot so that blue paper is perfect for me.

  2. Hi Daphne, It was so nice to have you stop by my blog and leave such a kind comment. I was excited to come see what you are up to. Your layout is really pretty – that line of papers has such vibrant colors. I think any picture that sparks a memory is a good one, so you’ll often see not-quite-perfect shots on my pages too. I see you have an analytic mind when it comes to design, and I can relate to that. I know what you mean – sometimes that visual triangle causes problems. But on this page I think you have a great diagonal flow to your really pretty page. Susanne

  3. Wunderschön geworden, liebe Daphne!! Die Farbkombi passt so richtig klasse!! Die bunten Papierchen sehen toll aus zu dem schwarzen Papier und das Embelli gefällt mir auch total!! Unheimlich toll finde ich immer wieder, wie du die Layouts fotografierst!!

    Viele Grüße,

    Elvan 🙂
