For this layout, I went into my albums to find inspiration. It is always a great source of inspiration to go looking at your old pages for ideas. All you have to do is revamp with newer papers, cardstock & embellishments. Believe me, you will think they are completely different layouts!
I do a lot of colour-blocking for my pages and for this one I used retired DSP, although it is from the same pack. After SU retires its papers, you think that they could not possibly bring out nicer DSP, but how wrong you are. Each year, the DSP is just as great or better than the previous year.
I wanted to keep with the greys, as in Bonnie’s cardigan while at the same time pick up the little bit of cream/yellow/lemon on the temple walls. I think I succeeded without going over the top! This is of Bon on her big school trip to Sydney!!!!!
With colour-blocking, you don’t have to use a lot of embellishments. I kept this page to a minimum, only going with ribbon & the metal tag….
For what looks like a 5 minute page, it did actually take me about an hour…. I know, I like to play with this & that, try my papers this way & that until I feel that I have captured the photo.
