Happy Thursday everyone! It’s Jenelle here and I have been really looking forward to hosting a Thursday Thievery post here on the Shabby Shoppe Blog and now is my big chance!! Yipee!!
I have had this layout of Rosy’s in my favourites folder for a while now – there is so much to admire, but I especially love the way Rosy has framed this precious photo of her gorgeous children reading books together. Placing the frame off-centre and weaving her photo though it really adds interest to the page and drew my eye right in. Then there is the inked edge around the photo, the brushwork around the frame and the placement of the filmstrip diagonally across the page. A visual masterpiece that we all had so much fun studying and then lifting!
I enjoyed experimenting with different frames, brushwork and layering behind my photo and came up with this lift of Rosy’s design – I pretty much kept to the same formula, I loved her page so much!!
Just look at the gorgeous colours in Casharina’s lift – so vibrant and I just LOVE that this layout combines dirt bikes and mud with flowers, hearts and glitter!!!
Kim has created fabulous depth here with the framing of her photo and layering of 12×12 papers. What a sweet, sweet memory to scrap too – love this pic!
And Kylie’s lift is genius with all that beautiful brushwork and clustering flowing across the page. I am in love with those little curls and cheeks!!!
So, as you can see, we have all drawn inspiration from Rosy’s wonderful layout and then tweaked it a little with our own style and memory keeping. Scraplifting someone’s work is a great way to learn some new techniques and really gets you studying what makes their page visually appealing and trying to incorporate that into your own scrapping style. I have learned so much from lifting other scrappers’ pages and I’d like to thank Rosy again for allowing us to lift her page today.
We’d love to see your take on Rosy’s design too – just upload it to our inspiration gallery so we can all see how you drew inspiration from Rosy’s layout.
Thanks for checking in today ~ be sure to visit tomorrow when Kylie announces the winners from Game One of our Blog Birthday Bash. Yay! I love competitions!! Until then, happy scrapping everyone.
