Hey y’all! Laura back again with a fun scraplift of Gwen Wruck! I absolutely loved Gwen’s fabulously frame-filled layout, so I just had to recreate it with the new These Days collection! Some of the things I loved most about Gwen’s layout were the variety of frame/photo sizes, the way her embellishments overlapped the frames, and the large title at the bottom. So, these are the elements I focused on when creating my version of her fun design.
First and foremost, I needed to create some frames! I used the A5 black and white floral to create frames for my 4×4 inch, 2 – 3×3 inch, and 2×2 inch photos. Then, I fussy cut several of the smaller frames from the patterned papers as well. The combination of the two work beautifully to contrast the bold and colorful Family Ties patterned paper that I used for a background to mimic Gwen’s painted one. I filled each of the frames with either a photo or an embellishment and puzzled them together as closely as I could to Gwen’s design.
Adding in a variety of textures to this page was so much fun! Between the fabric hearts, puffy stickers, wood veneer buttons, and Nuvo drops, this page is filled with texture! My personal favorite was the tiny houses, which were perfect for photos showcasing backyard fun at our home. I added gold Nuvo Drops as controlled splatter before going wild and crazy with gold ink spray around the perimeter of the frames (as is my usual style!).
To finish this page off, I added a bold title similar to Gwen’s below my frame collage and then fit my journaling into the small frame beside it. I love the way these frames really focused in on my photos and allowed me to fit so many onto one page without it feeling overwhelming!
I hope this layout encourages you to try your hand at making your own frames or fussy cutting them out for your next project! If you’d like to see how “Always Together” was created, check out the process video below!
