I have a new scrapbook to start planning out (more on that soon!) as well as wanting to get some Star Wars themed scrapbooking shared today. Why? It’s Star Wars day AND National Scrapbook day! hooray!
Here is a link to my YouTube video – in it I focus on the foil technique used on this layout.
My process of creating this (or any) layout is to really look at the photos and think about color, mood, textures – and what I have. I really couldn’t find anything I liked (aside from themed stickers) in my stash. Time to go shopping? NO! Time to get creative and look a little deeper. Look for colors, materials, and textures that fit the mood.
In this case green painted foil (more on that in my video linked above), blue paper, white cardstock, and some black ink helped me make the wild and grungy page to celebrate this dessert/birthday party. I was able to fit all of my photos and journaling in, as well as some fun details too!
I really like how this turned out and I’m loving that I got ephemera worked in as well. Capturing details like how we celebrated a birthday (while on a vacation!) is just one thing I adore about scrapbooking and I’m happy to have shared with you today! If you do any scrapbooking and post to social media, be sure to tag me. Or, as always I welcome you to email me as well. Love hearing from you and sharing this wonderful hobby of ours!
