'Energetic' Scrapbook Layout

Hi lovely readers! I'm happy you're back with me today. I'm sharing a scrapbook layout titled 'Energetic' which is a hybrid page and I'm really digging the possibilities of trying this technique more! Let me know what you think!

To begin this layout, I sized my image to a 9x12" canvas and began playing with my title. I laid out the word 'Energetic' in all caps and incorporated it into a square which I cropped to frame the corner of my face. Once that was complete, I printed it out on cardstock and trimmed to size.

With my print out in hand, I decided on coordinating cardstocks because I knew I wanted to Scatter some papers to replicate the brick shape from my image. I cut various shapes and sizes of papers from the recent Studio Calico Kit, Young at Heart. I adhered them with my permanent tombow adhesive roller and then added various gold mini staples with my tiny attacher along the edges. I balanced the spread by alternating each pattern–not to have two together, and then continuing the pattern down the left hand side of my spread to interact with my title and make it feel part of the page.

Among the scattered papers, I hand wrote the date on one of my August Kit 'Elementary' labels and attached it with a staple on the left hand side.

When choosing the patterns for my strips I chose black and white as a basis to balance the contrast in my photo and then I chose colors that were of a lesser intensity than my background–the pink and blue balance well because the blue is opposite of orange and the pink has an orange undertone so it doesn't read as overwhelming.
