I was so excited to be asked to be a guest designer for the 2Peas Design School event this week! I was given the theme of “Proportion/Scale” for the focus of my project.
When I think of proportion/scale, I think of the size of my elements on my layouts, and how they go together. Kind of like if I had a small tree element on my layout, I wouldn't want to put a gigantic flower next to it. One of the things that I tend to always keep larger in size on my layouts, are my titles. And I normally work with standard sized photos. So I thought it would be fun to use a HUGE photo on my page, along with a small title. I also wanted to do a little play on words, with my title, to fit my journaling.
For this layout, I started with an 8x12 photo of my oldest daughter, Alyssa. Every now and then, it's fun to enlarge a favorite photo, and use it on a scrapbook page, really letting the photo shine! For my title, I did use some smaller letter stickers from Bella Blvd, but I also mixed in some larger stickers as well. I thought it added some interest to my title, to use larger letter stickers to spell the word “little”, but to use smaller letter stickers to spell the word “big”. I wanted to use the yellow scalloped edged circle paper for my journaling piece, but the inside part of the paper was a dark grey. I simply used my circle cutter, to cut out a large circle of the grid pattern paper, to cover that grey up.
Thanks so much for looking, and joining me here at 2Peas for DESIGN SCHOOL!
