The One with the 2Peas Family-Themed Layout

Sunday, January 26, 2014

I had the opportunity to make an extra layout as a Garden Girl for Two Peas in a Bucket using the January moodboard, with a family theme, through the lens of "moments" - the stories we just have to scrapbook! Check it:

Description: This is one of my favorite photos. It is so typical "Fox & Jane". Fox is being a scary monster and chasing Jane while she runs away from him and squeals and shrieks in delight. And then with Jane wearing a red hooded sweater, this shot totally looks like Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf! Fox/Wolf, same thing :) There isn't much else going on in the photo besides my kiddos in a dark garage, but I was able to use the moodboard color palette to bring it more to life and incorporated red, gray, woodgrain, cream, aqua, and blue. I love adding texture and shine with embellishments like sequins, buttons, and wood veneer shapes, and of course a dash of spray mist to draw the eye all around the page. Since I used a white background I stitched with dark gray thread around the border to keep the layout "contained." I love how the white Uniball Signo pen write perfectly on dark surfaces like the woodgrain paper I used here as a photo corner accent.

Journaling says: This picture makes me think of Little Red Riding Hood being chased by the Big Bad Wolf, aka her brother Fox!

How to: Punch stars from white and cream cardstock as well as red, kraft, blue, gray, and woodgrain patterned papers. Adhere the stars on the top left triangle half of a white cardstock layout background. Embellish some of the stars with buttons, sequins, epoxy star stickers, and wood veneer starbursts.
