Whether you love snow or not, you can’t but love its magical properties! Hi Artlets, it’s Suzanne here today with a scrapbook page layout celebrating winter snow. We don’t get a lot of snow on Vancouver Island at sea level, so sometimes we go to the mountains looking for it! This page was an early winter day at Forbidden Plateau and it was so fun! Now if we had this every day, I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be so charming, but this day was totally awesome!
Here is how you can assemble this layout and add your own photos. Let’s get started.
Choose 2 photos for your project. That’s fun! Trim them to fit inside the frames. You can see that I just had the rectangular lake photo loosely placed inside the frame and the people photo was cut to fit perfectly inside the ornament.
Die cut Winter from the 4 Seasons die set, Bliss, Let it Snow, Flourished Frame, the ornament from Love Joy Peace Christmas Ornament, the pine boughs from Create a Wreath all from white Soft Finish Cardstock.
Die cut the snowflakes from Brrrrr and Merry Christmas 4 from masking paper, a post-it or removable labels.
Choose Distress Ink colours that complement the photos. Since mine were almost black and white because of snow and trees, I went with pretty dark colours and then added hints of other colours to pick up the jacket and toque.
Adhere the snowflakes randomly on the base cardstock and begin blending colours, right over the snowflakes. You probably don’t want to do this under where the photos will be! Every once in a while, move the snowflakes and blend over the original masked area and continue blending. If you can spritz your blending and get little dots to appear they will also make the background interesting. By moving the snowflake diecuts and blending over the masked area you’ll create the illusion of depth.
Once you’ve blended the colours to your satisfaction, begin adding the diecuts and photos. Refer to the sample photos for placement. The Flourished Frame and photo are adhered to the background with 3D Foam Squares and the ornament is adhere with two layers of the foam adhesive. Everything else is adhered with Glue Dots.
Now you have an awesome memory of a fabulous day!
Happy creating, Suzanne
