It’s a Good Day! | A scrapbooking layout inspired by Shimelle


It's A Good Day - title - dapfniedesign

Happy special Sunday to you all out there! It is great to be back here, even if it is not really a regular thing; I am trying very hard!

About ten days ago I handed it my portfolio with my coursework I was working on the past 18 months – and as I haven’t heard back from my assessor, I assume it was all fine. It just needs to pass the IQA now and then this chapter of my life is ticked. Having no more coursework to work on means I have a bit more spare time for my scrapping, which always seems to brighten up my mood when I’m a bit down. I already knew that scrapbooking had this “side effect”, and at the moment I am using it intentionally for this reason.

Shimelle‘s “return” to the scrapping world this week came absolutely handy and I used her autumn scrapbook page as an inspiration for my two-photo-layout. I even used some patterned paper as the base which I haven’t done for… let me think…. ages!

As my two photos weren’t the size Shimelle’s photo was, I had to move it away from the edge, otherwise it would have been too unbalanced and quite right-sided. A few elements are similar to Shimelle’s, but I think I used her version more like a starting point and then scrapped on following my own ideas.

As I still have quite a lot of stickers, chipboards and other elements in my stash, I was able to combine all sorts of strips to my page; I think the wavy border has just waited to be used with these photos!

Shimelle finished off her layout using some golden splatters and I thought that would be a good idea on my page as well.

Hopefully I will have time to dive into some more scrapping today before returning to the “real life” later on. What are you all up to this Sunday?

Thanks for stopping by today!
