Today I have an Easter Layout that is a perfect scrapbooking version of the book “If you give a mouse a cookie…..”.
My picture is of my littlest one’s excitement at finding his first Easter Egg. I knew I wanted to do this page in the style of a scene instead of a traditional layered look.
So I opened up my Silhouette software and started designing. I started out with layers of grass and some Easter Eggs.
But the page looked empty so I added hills. Green hills made it hard to see where the grass ended so I did brown as some of our local hills were still showing winter brown. Then I weaved the Easter Eggs into the grass but they looked plain so I had to add glitter and Nuvo Dots.
Then there was too much brown. So I decided to add spring flowers to the grass and some of the layers in the hills. But there were large gaps that made the hills look empty with too much brown showing, so I cut more eggs. Then I noticed my layout was getting bottom heavy so I tried to combat that with Chocolate Easter Bunnies as picture holders but again too much Brown. I added some pink and white paper with writing on it. It was fine but still needed more , so I added green eyes and some ribbon.
Then the papers for the picture and base were looking out of place, so I added brown layers to tie all the brown together. While I am not 100% happy, I finally have this extremely embellished “scene” layout for my little one who was very excited about finding his first Easter Egg.
Thanks for stopping by and reading.
Until next time…..
