Scrapbooking With Movement

Hi lovelies! I'm back today sharing a fun movement focused layout titled 'Young, Wild, + Free'. To create this layout I knew I wanted to focus on both movement and the idea of radial circles so I pulled some patterned paper and printed up a full bleed image that had movement already in it. To check out even more details on how you can scrapbook with movement, check out the rest of the post!

Scrapbooking with Movement

The first step to creating this layout with movement was to choose a photo that directionally pulled you off the page. I chose this adorable snap of my nephew living it up on the swings and chose to make him the focal point by encircling him with rounded scraps of paper that I cut from recent Studio Calico Kits (Cypress Grove and Roman Holiday). I simply grabbed a round object to start with as my base size and cut a circle from the blue paper. I then used that as a guide to progressively cut bigger and bigger strips from the coordinating colors. The 'love' speech bubble fit in perfectly and I grabbed that from Ali Edwards' Day in the Life Mini Kit No. 2. I just tacked each piece down with my Tombow permanent adhesive and then I moved on to the bottom half of the spread. I knew I wanted to add some journaling about this carefree moment so I cut some strips and wrote what I wanted onto them. I then attached those down with the adhesive and then tiny attached the acetate label from Studio Calico to join the journalling strips together into one thought. That's it! Pretty simple. I emphasized the motion of the image by expanding with graphic elements around it in the same direction as the motion was occurring and by breaking up the strips of paper in random intervals, I was able to create more interest and places for your eye to jump around before landing on the image. I hope you enjoyed this little example of scrapbooking with movement and be sure to check out more details and the supplies below.
