Monday Inspiration by Beatrice: Farm Fresh
Good morning. I’m writing on the blog today to bring you the fourth and final installment of inspirational layouts using kits from the Outdoor Fun Special you can find on the SnickerdoodleDesigns Facebook page. Make sure to check it out if you haven’t already since you can get four great kits for one low price and it’s not too late. Today I’d like to show you some layouts using Farm Fresh, another of my favorite SnickerdoodleDesigns Kits. My grandchildren and I are big fans of farms and we often visit the local dairy, if not for the animals definitely for the ice cream. So whether you live on a farm, visit one, or just like to eat fresh, this is the kit for you! As always, it’s packed and so versatile as evidenced by the layouts I show you here.
This project deserves to be framed. I really like the quote the artist chose. Angling the card between the gorgeous clusters adds to the diagonal flow of the page. I like the way she repeated some of the elements like the stack of farm animals and the blue flowers. The handkerchief peeking out behind the clusters makes the perfect foundation for her clusters.
The photo featured in this page is so sweet. I love those puppy eyes. I like the way the artist combined the large blended photo with the smaller framed photo. This page also has a diagonal flow. The cluster and trailing ribbon moves the eye down and across the page. The simple title is just right for her minimalist page.
This kit works perfectly for orchard photos. You may find yourself using the kit again in the fall to scrap your photos of apple picking. I like the way the artist added the scallops at the top and bottom of the page and then mimicked them with the scalloped circle holding her title. The stack of apples found in the kit is just right for her theme and the papers she chose lend an autumnal feel to the page.
After the apple picking, you may find yourself heading to the pumpkin patch, just like Rosemarythyme. I like the way she masked and framed her photo, adding the stitches on top and the banner across the bottom. Her blended papers make for the perfect background and I like the way she rotated her title and placed it next to the photo.
If you don’t currently live on or visit a farm, it’s quite likely that your relatives did. If you are fortunate like Kabra, you may have a few photos that need to be lovingly preserved. This layout is stunning and the photo is priceless. I like the way she centered the photo on the page and bordered it with both the kit frame and stacked kit papers. The ribbon and banner serve as a shelf for her large and beautifully shadowed clusters.
There is something about cows that is so appealing to me. I really like the way Jeanette masked this lovely photo. She used one of my favorite papers from the kit which looks like painted and distressed wood. Adding the cluster around her photo makes for a creative design and the tiny bunch of flowers in the top corner draws the eye up the page.
I’ve now come to the end of my post and this is the last of the Outdoor Fun layout series. I hope you have followed along and been inspired to use this collection of kits for your own projects. Thanks for reading along and have a great week.
