Here is a little scrapbooking insider tidbit for you:) When a company, like Pinkfresh Studio, is designing a line of paper there will be repeated elements throughout the collection ( or they would just look like separate pieces of paper, right?!) Designers will choose Color and Shapes as the two main ways to create a cohesive collection. So, when I have no idea of where to start because I’m in a creative funk, Those are the things that I look for and try to pull inspiration from:)
On these two pieces of ‘Happy Things’ paper, I admired the triangles. The way they were orientated, overlapping, transparent and dimensional. So I thought I would recreate the paper in my own way with the pictures being the majority of the triangles.
I chose a picture with no faces or orientation so It would be easier to cut from and not worry about missing eyeballs. Sky shots, floors, or other non portrait like pictures would work very well.
Then, I stitched and pasted the pictures, velum and other fussy cut triangles from the kit to create the ‘paper’ on which to have my full pictures on. I also stitched a few floating triangles as well to add some texture.
From there my creative juices started flowing and I was able to add the final touches with some alphas, height, wood veneer and watercolor splashes.
So my humble advice is not to fret when your stuck. Just be your own scrapbook paper designer and I’m sure that you will love the result.
