Here's another layout from the Siblings Weekend scrapbook I made for Mark. I used several elements here, starting with a Simple Stories paper for my base. I kind of divvied up the page into four quadrants, and put an element in each one. Each quadrant also ties in yellow, blue, and red colors.
In the top left I have the photo. On the photo I used an overlay that had a bunch of speech bubbles, which seem to all be kind of pointing at my sister-in-law, so it draws your eye to her.
In the upper right quadrant I put a simple piece of graph paper for journalling. I used a yellow chevron washi tape to hold down the edges that are furthest away from the photo.
In the lower right quadrant I used a red mat on a cut-a-part piece from the Simple Stories Urban Traveller collection, since the purpose the the trip was to see Boston.
Finally, in the lower left quadrant I used some chevron washi tape to tie back to the red and blue colors elsewhere in the layout. I trimmed the edges of the pieces of tape to give them a little more dimension.
I like the color scheme on this page. Watch for more scrapbook layouts to come!
