Summer is inspiring for all creative minds… especially scrapbookers. Here are some inspiring ideas for creating pages with summer colors!
Create to escape
Even if you don't go on a trip and stay at home during the summer season, it is possible to make scrapbooking pages with summer flavors. Especially since at home, we will have the time, the space and all our equipment to capture the inspiration around us.
Is the beautiful season blushing with pleasure or is it sunny like the luminous star? Unless it's the blue of the water or the green of the trees that excites you? The orange of the campfire or the striking pink of a sweet lemonade?
We mix the colors as desired for invigorating effects. We play with colors whose marriages are less popular for interesting shocks (pale blue and orange, green and purple, etc.). To give more effects to our pages, we choose textured and colored paper. Brilliant flashy contrasts!
Becoming a photo pro improves our ability to make scrapbook pagesamazing, original and touching.
We mostly take pictures during the day. Why not capture evening moments? Or even under the moon? We vary the angles. We do not hesitate to defy natural laws by turning our camera a little. We play with the plans: we go from close-up to precise zoom. We take two photos of the same thing: one in general view and the other in close-up. An amazing duo once arranged on a page. Only capture one part of the body at a time. A look, a strand of hair in the wind, bare toes in the grass, etc.
Nature is ours
Since summer, we play a lot outside, we take the opportunity to “naturalize” our pages.
We make a catch-all box to put in our finds that inspire or rekindle our memories (shell, twig, feather, flower, rock, branch, sand, etc.). Even if we don't use them on our pages, these objects help us keep our ideas on track once our heads are bent over our pages. In scrapbooking shops, we look for papers with colors and patterns reminiscent of nature.
Examples of themes for your pages
Summer is the scene of a panoply of activities reserved almost exclusively for this blessed time of the year. Frivolous, funny, summery and aquatic subjects are exploited: the joys of bathing, fireworks, family members' sandals, balloons, cycling, sleeping in tents, soccer games,games in the park, summer menus and drinks, the cool wind, the picnic at the zoo, the rides, the feet in the grass, the insects, the clothesline, the straw hat, the siesta in the shadow.
Summer pleasures… we are building a mosaic of the favorite pleasures of young and old. The family zoo… we dress up all the members of our little tribe on our pages. The clothesline of photos… to stage memories.
As its name suggests, digital scrapbooking consists of creating projects on the computer with digital material, such as photos in JGP for example. Photo editing or layout software increases the creative possibilities tenfold! If the experience tempts you, the site Scrap Gratuit offers to discover digital scrapbooking in French.
