Now that we have our flowers, it's time to look for a background that matches the color scheme of our magazine cut-outs. For that, I have here a 12x12 pastel cardstock pack where we can choose from.
I chose a pastel yellow background as it complements the colors of our magazine cut-outs well.
Next, we'll be using our white pen to make our wobbly shapes look more like flowers.
What I'm using is a pigment ink white pen, but another white pen that I can also recommend is a Posca pen, especially if you get one with a small nib size.
We're used to using our white pen on black backgrounds but they can do so much more than that! In this case, we're using our white pen to draw on pastel and colorful magazine papers.
For your photos, anything with too much detail or too much color is going to get completely lost in our colorful scrapbook layout. So find your favorite photo that will be a perfect fit!
This is the photograph that I chose which looks absolutely beautiful on our page. I've also drawn out some white and rugged-looking circle at the back, and inked the edges of our flowers to make our layout pop out a little bit more.
To finish it off, I've put some additional text so it reads "Going with the flow is what you do best..." which is something that my middle child in the picture does very well!
So there we have a very simple yet fabulous layout just by using the front cover of our magazine.
Hope you've enjoyed this tip, and I'll see you next time!
