4 new layouts

I’m here to show you four new layouts.
I’m starting off with a layout that I have made for a sketch challenge at Veckans skiss. The sketch is dominated by a lot of hexagons but I’m all into triangles at the moment so I switched the geometrical figures into triangles instead. I hope that’s okay.
Sketch:
The second layout is a DT layout for Punky Scraps. It’s a sketch challenge and we are asking for a LOT of yellow and some feathers or other eastery stuff. I have used a patterned paper with feathers and a photo of DD dressed like an Easter witch.
Sketch:
The third layout is a DT layout for Allt Om Scrap. This too is a sketch challenge. (I really love sketch challenges. :)) I used this one to create a feeling that DD is jumping out of the layout.
Sketch:
The last one is my DT layout for ARTastic. We have a cool Mandala painting as an inspiration piece this month. It’s made by artist Trevor Nickolls. The criteria is to use the colors in the painting. You doesn’t have to use the mandala pattern but it can be a cool effect if you want to. :)
Have you noticed that my layouts have become lighter lately? Well, we just renovated our house and my scrapbooking room went from this…
… to this. (The windowsill has not arrived yet.)
This has affected me so that I have begun to make lighter layouts using more white. I asked DH what he thought of it and he first told me that they were too white, I continued experimenting and then he said that there were too many straight lines. Then his opinion was that there was too much empty space. But now it seems like he likes it. Of course my aim is not that he shall be satisfied with how it looks, but sometimes it’s easier to find your own path when listening to what other people think. Then you suddenly know if you agree or not and you know in what direction you want to go. It would be really fun to hear what you think too! And maybe you want to share some thoughts about what you think of using white on your own layouts?
I wish you a wonderful weekend full of scrapbooking and nice “little things”!!

  5. For en super forandring på Scrapperommet ditt. Det virker mye større også nå når det er blitt hvitt.
    I like a bit of the white space on your LOs. The bright colours you use comes out so much more when a bit of white around. Fab LOs you have made, they are all so lovely so it is difficoult so choose a favourite
    Ha en fin ,fin helg du også 
