Amber is back today sharing a layout that is twice as much fun! That's because unlike the majority of 12 x 12 scrapbook layouts these days Amber created a two page spread for us. I love that she created a cohesive design with repeating elements and used several different photos to tell her story.
Here is what Amber had to say about this project!
We left Tucson, Arizona where it was already having temps in the 100s... when we headed up to Williams, Arizona where it was nice and cool... it even snowed on us in May! The cold weather was welcome even when we were fishing and provided beautiful cloud coverage for photos! I loved this beautiful paper from the Simple Stories Happy Trails collection named "Lakeside" with its monochromatic fish swimming about, perfect for a fishing page! And so much fishing related ephemera in this collection! I tried to keep the two page layout as monochromatic (like the Lakeside paper) with various blues and teals including the mixed media background and the blue paper used for backing some of the photos (from the collection, but was only identified by being a cut apart sheet for 4x6 elements). The title was appropriate as my family did not get a single fish to bite that day! All the other families we camped with caught several fish! I tried to utilize the journaling tag and fishing rod from the sticker sheet to look like it was being reeled in with the fish attached for a little whimsy for my journaling.
Here is a close up of her beautiful mixed media sparkly lake/water inspired background! Those blues and aquas are stunning!
I know that lots of you have been doing some camping, fishing, and hiking this past summer because the Happy Trails collection kit from Simple Stories sold out mighty fast! I would love to hear some of YOUR fish tales! Leave us a comment below if you have fishing photos you need to scrap. You can also post your projects in the Clique group anytime. We'd love to see them!
