Rustic Bike Ride

The air is fresh, the trees are budding, and it’s time to get outside. This kit, full of warm, inviting colors, beckons us to hop on that cute little bike and meander through the country. Or at least that’s what I think of 😉
Rustic Bike Ride is full of rich texture and bold, but elegant patterns, making it perfect for scrapping many different subjects. Let’s get out in the fresh air and make some memories!

Not really a tip but an observation, does that work? I’ve noticed that my scrapbooking style has changed as my style in photography has changed. A few years ago I stopped lugging my DSLR everywhere and now rely on my iPhone for all my photos. I love the iPhone photos as much as my ‘fancy’ camera photos, but instead of them being landscape they are all mostly portrait orientation now, which has changed my scrapbooking style. I don’t think one is better or worse (the photos or the scrapbooking pages), it’s just something I’ve noticed lately, to remind myself to take landscape photos as well.

My daughter took these pics on her phone and although the kit is loaded with beautiful papers, I kept the background simple to keep the focus on her photos. The word art and elements frame her photos to keep them the center focus of the layout.

I took the papers across the cut for this layout and wanted my shadows to go across evenly. As I added the strips of paper, I merged them and then added the shadows. This wouldn’t have been as easy with the strip of pictures so I used my rectangular marquee tool to make a rectangle the same size as the strip of pictures. I didn’t want to merge the pictures because it could happen that I’d want to use one of the pictures in a different way. I added the shadow to that layer and that gave the shadow I wanted.

My middle daughter is growing up far too fast for my liking. She’s more of a woman than a little girl and I wanted my page to reflect that. I chose simple and elegant to frame this photo of my not-so-little girl.
