Is it time to do another reader’s challenge?? We thought so!! Each week we’re going to focus on one of those events and celebrations that happen annually, and with them often comes a challenge on how to present them in a new way. Sometimes the number of photos you take can be overwhelming and so they just stay on a hard disk or in a photo packet.
This week, our design team looks at easter, from the egg hunt through to the devouring of the stash. You could check out earlier easter posts too, here and another super cute layout here for inspiration.
We’d love to showcase your easter themed layouts too, especially the doubles with lots of photos – from project life style through to mixed media projects. Please ensure that lots of products you use come from our own suppliers – you can check the list here.
Email images of your pages to aussiedt(at)iinet(dot)net(dot)au by next Tuesday 30 April to be in the running for a special giveaway prize pack each week.
For a heads up on future themes, we’re looking at both girls and boys birthday parties and then the ubiquitous Aussie events – Anzac Day (so get your cameras out tomorrow!), Australia Day or just a typical summer barbeque.
Sue Tonga has designed this double-page layout using the Webster's Park Drive collection, mixed with a little Prima. Sue has made the left page her feature and then created a simple collage for the second page. This allowed her to scrap lots of photos from their Easter Hunt last year. By keeping the colour palette fairly soft, Sue was able to incorporate lots of colourful photos without having them all compete with each other.
Even though most Easter ranges include pink, Kim has used the Echo Park Easter Mini Theme papers and embellishments to good effect for the layout to record her son's Easter egg hunt in London. Kim has minimised the amount of pink she used and drawn out the other colours in the range by introducing a yellow paper from Simple Stories by MemoryWorks and with paper tapes from Bella Blvd to create the random strips at the top and bottom of the page. This has allowed Kim to still utilise the "theme" elements of the range without the page becoming too feminine.
