Happy Easter and a big thank you for stopping in to the Cocoa Vanilla blog on this special day. I hope you are all surrounded by loved ones and if that is not possible you are tucked away scrapbooking something memorable.
While I was flicking through some photos earlier this week I came across this photo of my two adorable children on Easter in 2012. I couldn’t be more delighted to see this photo and compare how they have changed over the last five years.
This layout is 98% Wild at Heart, 1% Colour Me Happy and 1% Hello Lovely. That’s the beauty about all Cocoa Vanilla Studio ranges they all in some way coordinate. Shopping these collections is simple today.. just click HERE
This beautiful marble paper is perfect for an Easter layout. There is something about those magical swirls that make me wish they were on an egg.
In this layout I used some watered down white paint and pink to blend some of the patterned paper to soften it and draw the attention to the my photo. I then used a range of Wild at Heart patterned paper and layered them behind the photo using some foam and standard double sided tape.
I then added the areas of clustered embellishments around the photo. This is really the fun part. When your patterned paper is very busy you need to add lots of featured sections around you photo so that the photo really pops. This is what I hoped to achieve with balance and ensuring that I don’t take away from the photo.
I then added the chipboard title, some enamel dots and my journaling.
I showed my children the layout and they loved it. They laughed and giggled at how different they looked and the fun memories they had that Easter.
Thanks again for stopping by.. I’m off to have a fresh hot cross bun & a cup of tea.
