Over at Two Peas in a Bucket, Glitter Girl has been looking at making scrapbook pages with bolder background papers and her Adventure 83 gave us step-by-step instructions for making a page using the bold paper as a frame around the page. Her instructions included picking out two colours from the bold pattern and using single-coloured papers in those colours in the centre of the page, with a neutral mat to separate them from the background.
I've tried to scrap this photo of my son and nephew a couple of times using a zig-zag print from MME's Lime Twist collection. The colours suited the photo and the zig-zags conveyed a sense of movement, perfect for them rolling around the floor, but I couldn't get any further. By following Glitter Girl's instructions I was finally able to get the photo scrapped, and scrapped quite quickly.
