Creative Zone

What always impresses me about Jennifers work & events such as her latest, frosty festivities, she always manages to think outside the box, so I decided to try & add this thought to my scrapbook page, to think outside the photo.

In this case I tried to extend the photo, first by mounting it on paper of a similar colour.

I wasnt happy with it so got my paints out and went over with this. I sponged with greens and blue, then stippled with gold and browns to try & match the autumn leaves.

Jennifer had started with a monochrome page and felt it needed a pop of colour. I decided to do the opposite with this page. The paint being the pop of colour and I wanted the embellishments and title to be monochrome. I layered up embellishments, and a journalling block. Adding also buttons, beads brads & even a shaped paperclip.

I think this technique really draws your eye to the photo, not my usual style but I rather like it.


  1. Oh K - this is just beautiful!

  2. Love what you've done me it seems to really extend the photo beautifully.

  3. It's brilliant K, sometimes it's good to work outside your comfort zone and try something different. I need to get more messy, I've been too neat lately! ;)

  4. This looks fabulous, I love how you extended the photo! It's so effective. And fab idea to use monochromatic embellishments on a colourful background, I am totally going to try that out! Thank you for joining in the Frosty Festivities challenge! x
