Monday Inspiration by Beatrice: Backyard Splash

August 8, 2017

It’s Monday so I’m back on the blog ready to bring you more inspiration using Snickerdoodle Designs’ collection, Backyard Splash.

Originally available only at the Studio as part of the Coordinated Collection, Backyard Splash is now available at:

SnickerdoodleDesigns     The Digichick     Digital Scrapbooking Studio

I’m showing you just the collection preview which is the best value but separates are available as well. I think you will agree even from a brief view of the preview that this collection will serve your scrapping needs when it comes to your summer adventures. So now I’ll move right along to the purpose of my post.

The design in Wet ‘n Wild by JennyG is so striking. I love the overlapping photos stacked at the top. The way she added the wave as a border draws the eye down the page. Her clusters are beautifully shadowed and her script title-work is very creative. I like the background paper she created by combining one of the kit papers with the graffiti. Her journaling makes me reflect on our own sprinkler fun; keeping cool without ever leaving home.

I like the stacked papers in Summer Splash by Kabra. She used the wave border as a shelf to support some of the kit elements. The combination of masking and framing on the photo is a great design technique. As always her large, signature clusters complete her layout in just the right way.

The photos in Big Splash by Kythe are precious and artistically arranged in order to keep the focus there. I really like the way she limited the palette to just three colors, with blue predominating. The bow-tied cluster is so delicate and pretty, in line with the photos. I like the brushwork and paint she added behind. The font she chose for her journaling matches the tone of her layout perfectly.

The photo in Big Splash by Bright Eyes is so full of joy and energy. Her page design and use of the kit elements really continues and reinforces the energetic feel of the photo. I love the wave border across the bottom exploding with bubbles and water swirls. These kit elements used throughout the page echo her theme. The sun in the corner and title strip finish off the layout perfectly.

Backyard Splash Fun by ChrissyC uses the same collection but gives us a different feel since the artist focused on the oranges and yellows in the collection. By doing this the layout has a sunny feel. The masked photo is lovely and the clusters are beautifully shadowed. The artist also used the wave border to support her cluster and even managed to tuck in that cute pup.

I’ve come to the end of my post. If you are like me you take more photos in summer than in any other season. I hope I have inspired you to get your scrap on and move the photos from your camera to your pages. Thanks and have a great week.
