August Simple Scrapper Layouts:Exploration

The summer months often entail travel and so this months theme at Simple Scrapper is 'Exploration'. Of course, there are lot's of different prompts to inspire you if travel isn't part of your story. i however, have lots of travel photos to scrap and ended up creating a grand total of 4 layouts based on the prompts. i'm also the cover girl for the spark magazine this month, which is always exciting! 

This first layout used a sketch from the Simple Scrapper archive. i was looking for a sketch which used 2 4x6 photos and with the way the archive is set up it's easy to find layouts by photo size or number. The sketch was very simple so i chose this background paper deliberately as it adds interest to the page. i have plenty of photos from the French Quarter in New Orleans so i will likely create an accompanying pocket page at some point. 

To create this layout i gathered a bunch of different supplies including some Ali Edwards Story kits & stamps 'wild' and 'magic' which seemed to work with the exploration theme and just played. 

On my this layout, i did something very out of character. Used a whole pack of rub-ons in one go! i really like how it looks, but i did find it hard to cover some of it up. i was comsidering using multiple photos for the layout but decided this photo was monumental enough to speak for the story.
