Monday Inspiration by Beatrice – Joyful Noise

September 24, 2018

It’s Monday, so I hope you are excited for the second post in the series featuring kits by SnickerdoodleDesigns that are part of an exciting deal coming in just a few more days on September 26th. Last week I featured Backyard Splash and this week I’m showing you layouts using Joyful Noise, another of the kits that are part of the deal.

Joyful Noise Kit

We recently had my son’s saxophone spruced up for my grandson who will be learning to play. I honestly can’t say that the noise he makes is particularly joyful but it’s sweet that he will be playing the same instrument as his dad did some years ago. I’m certain there will be a layout using this gorgeous kit in my future.

I like the stacked papers in Deanna’s layout. The photos are so crisp and the cluster across the bottom edge is gorgeous. The alpha/word art she chose for her title works perfectly with the musical theme and replacing the ‘o’ with a single button is a creative touch. The musical staff brushwork she added in black compliments the title perfectly.

This page by Kay has a dreamy effect. I like the way she added the kit brushes to the background paper. The clusters are so delicate and that sweeping musical staff helps move the eye across the page. The light flare she added to the photo is perfectly placed and the word strips placed at an opposing angle to the photo add interest to the page.

I really like the stacked and angled papers in Zanthia’s layout. She also used a template by Heartstrings Scrap Art. The top photo fits perfectly in the star shape and I like the way she split the bottom photo into two frames. Her clusters are impressive and the diagonal lines both down and across lead us around the entire layout.

The photo in Kabra’s layout is a real treasure. Her paper stacking is the perfect backdrop and the shadowing on the top paper is very realistic. I like the way she tacked down the ribbon banner at the corner of the page with the two black buttons. Her signature cluster is large and beautifully shadowed. The touches of black in the brushwork, title and buttons contrast so well with the pastels in the papers and embellishments.

I love the pops of pink in Kythe’s layout. The fold of the floral paper revealing the musical notes is so creative. It makes the perfect foundation for the nest of birds while the fold itself makes a lovely shelf for the birds perched on top. Her journaling paints a picture and I like the way each line steps down the page.

Norma’s layout is more modern in tone. I like the large, masked photo and the way it extends even to the musical notes. The placement of the frame leads us to the most important part of the photo and makes it the focal point. Adding the lyrics to one side of the page with the title opposite is a great design technique. The single cluster in the top corner finishes the page off just right.

The special deal will be revealed in just a few days but I’ll be back next week to feature the third kit so you will be loaded with layout inspiration and be ready to create your own fantastic pages. Thanks for reading along and have a great week!
