Hello Friends, it’s Terhi here with you again!
It’s April now, which means we are very close to the season of Cherry Blooms. Can’t wait for it! I love seeing all trees in blossom, both apple and cherry trees are my favorite.
The last weeks has been full of very worrying news, so keeping mind in positive things and remember the beauty of the world is important. This is why I decided on creating a scrapbook page around the spring flowers theme. To create this page I used Hey, Hello! collection designed by Jen Hadfield.
You might be focusing first on the flowers here, but as usual, the most important part of a scrapbook layout is the photograph (or some other way telling about the memories).
I really like playing with photographs!
Like while creating this layout, first I added one photo of the cherry blooms, but then wanted to add another one cut in circle shape. And I couldn’t stop there, so I added even more very small cherry bloom pics in matching bloom shape.
Layering photographs on top of each other and on top of other elements in the page gives you depth and dimension. Both depth and dimension will make the layout more live, which makes the layout much more interesting!
Small things matter.
In addition to photographs of the memory, I like adding matching embellishments or other elements to the page. Like here, I wanted to add lots and lots of flowers to support the theme of the amazing cherry trees.
The rest of the creation process is just adding smaller embellishments like stickers, and then title and journaling.
Now I have this wonderful page hanging on our wall and reminding about happier times. “I got this”, and I know “all is good”, so no need to worry too much. Hope you feel the same.
