I’m so glad to be bringing our next 4play challenge to you this week! After a week of rehearsals, dance recitals, and craziness I am ready to scrap away! Our kits this week are very versatile and full of bright, happy colors. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!! So bring on the inspiration!
This is what I came up with!
I had a design in mind before I started picking elements from each kit. So to make it work the way I envisioned, I altered a few items, which made creating this even more fun! I used a lot from Agnes’ kit, like papers, masks, and stitches. Karen’s cute green paper helped me break up all the blue, and I altered some elements from Celeste’s kit for journaling lines and to frame the letters of my title. Audrey’s frame kept focus on my pouty girl and the story I wanted to tell. Hope you enjoy!
Next up is the amazing Jennifer Barksdale:
She said, “The colors of the papers and whimsical elements reminded me of some park photos I had. Since there were several photos to work with and I wanted to keep it simple, I used Audrey’s frames on each photo and grouped them in a block in various sizes. I combined Celeste’s elements into a title accent and clipped Agnes’ papers to it. Agnes’ brushes added details and interest to the background of my page and journaling. I added a strip of Karen’s striped paper under the main photo with Agnes’ twine element to break up the block of photos and tie in all the colors together. I really like how everything came together and how it conveys the fun we had that day!”
Jennifer Hignite’s page is so fun:
She added, “I absolutely love Agnes’ en route kit. As soon as I saw it was included in this weeks 4 play, I knew my layout had to be travel themed! Audreys frames were super fun and easy to use to get that instagram look, without the use of a phone. I used bits and pieces of Karen’s papers to frame my photos and at the very end, I decided to use one of Celeste’s fun frames to anchor the whole layout together.”
And I was truly moved by the story Mary Roger‘s shared:
Who said, “I loved the kits that Mandi chose this week. I just love the color orange lately and can usually make it work with most of my photos (and a few actions). My daughter LOVES music, prefers it over everything (even food sometimes) – I love that my husband captured these photos…she makes me so happy. I was able to use elements and papers from all three kits, which seamlessly flowed together, and adding the Instaframes was the easy part. I layered two on top of each other to give them more depth.”
