This is a traditional 12 x 12 scrapbooking page using non-traditional scrapbooking supplies and I have created it digitally. Traditional scrapbooking is not old-fashioned, or out of fashion. However, in the community of scrapbookers that I follow and the Facebook group I am a part of, there are fewer and fewer traditional scrapbooking pages being created, or at least, being shared to the community. And, sometimes I miss the old way of scrapbooking. I don't mean using physical paper and products, but creating a page digitally, like in this case - a 12 x 12, which became the traditional way to create a scrapbooking layout post-Project Life, or 6 x 8 size, as the most popular current-sized pages.
I used one of Ali Edwards' Story kits, the TOGETHER story kit which is made up of journal cards, chipboard, stamps, and embellishments. I used the journal cards as my 'paper' to create the circles, added some chipboard and embellishments and added a stamped title. Because I created this digitally I was able to size all of the product, especially the cards, to fit my needs.
I used the design tool - a visual triangle to tie the page together. It is one of the few design tools I can wrap my head around and pull off fairly decently. The visual triangle is met in two different ways: the three black and white photos, or the three clusters of circles. It makes the page a stand-out and gives the page a cohesive appearance.
Of course, the subjects of the page, us + our grandsons, is pretty sweet, too!
