Pocket Chick Pick: Alicia Geiss

I was so excited when I got my Pocket Chick Pick blog slot...and had so much FUN browsing through the Facebook Fancy Pants gallery at everyone's gorgeous work! You are all so talented which made my decision to find a single page to lift, a difficult one. I finally settled on this beautiful page by Alicia Giess. I was drawn to her use of multiple photos and diagonal placement of her accents.

Loves of my Life by Alicia Geiss

Now before I show you my page I'd like to embellish on the creative process that lead to my take on it. At first glance it isn't obvious that I lifted Alicia's page. But...she cried with a wicked laugh: "I absolutely did!"

To make my lift transition easier to visualize, I created a basic sketch for you to follow.

I focused on Alicia's use of 4 photos, her diagonal placement of her embellishments, how she created her accents by cutting up a piece of patterned paper, the way the title is placed above the photos and the journaling positioned at the bottom right corner.

Oh Boy by Kim Watson

A crazy, fun and very typically boy page of my little guy using the NEW To The Moon collection. In keeping with Alicia's idea I cut up a piece of Shooting Star paper and a journaling card for my shooting star accents.

I also positioned my title above one of the photos and wrote my journaling on the bottom right corner like she did. Two pages 'light-years' apart (haha! no pun intended) yet similar in design. Sometimes 'lifting' a lovely page isn't so much about copying it, as it is about inspiring a creative direction.

Thanks Alicia for your fabulous inspiration and thanks for stopping by.

Happy scrapping!
