I really love to use a layout as a start point for another layout. I could keep going like that forever: scrap a page, use it as inspiration for another page, use it as inspiration for another page, and them as inspiration for another page…
For the first layout, I just wanted to use that bear. But, to which theme it would fit? I could not think about anything and, at the same time, I could not stop thinking about the constellation Ursa Major. So I decided to scrap a page about the night that the little girl slept in Kindergarten with her peers. I know. That’s how my brain works sometimes.
I really love how this layout turned out so I decided to scrap another page, inspired by it. Because the background of the first page is so bold, I decided to go with white cardstock for the next page. Instead of a bear die cut, I used a journaling card with a bird and the layered papers became stripes under the photos. I typed the journaling on stripes of paper once more.
As you can see, lots of papers from the first page found their way in this second page as well, they were still on my desk, so why not?
I cleaned my desk and scrapped another page, which turned out very similar to the first one, in fact, it is just the flipped version of the first layout. This layout was very fun and easy to make. I choice the colors, papers and patterns based on the colors in the photo. It is probably a color combo that I would not choice other way.
Is this an idea for you? Do you use your “old” layouts as a start point? Will you give a try?
Thanks for stopping by today!
