My Garden Collage
March 05, 2016
Today I have something a bit different to share with you - a scrapbook page. I don't scrapbook as much as I would like, but I did enjoy doing this page on my spring garden and it is fitting given that it is/was (depending where you are) World Scrapbooking Day on Friday 4th March. I have lots of travel and cat photos that would benefit from seeing the light of day as well.
I used some free software to create the collage and printed it on my home Canon Pixma printer. This is a great format when you want to display a few related photos on one page and would be perfect for travel photos too. You can get very creative with collages using the software now available on phones and tablets.
I'm a 'pink' person (if you hadn't already noticed, lol) and a lot of the flowers in my garden are pink as well. I chose a black background to make the photos pop and then 2 contrasting colours from the photos - Melon Mambo and Mossy Meadow to create the 2-sided border. It effectively creates a square within the square for my collage photo to sit in. The Botanical Builder framelits are perfect for adding some simple embellishments.
