Driving through a Winter Wonderland

After Christmas last year, the whole family–including the dogs–drove through a Christmas light display. Clayton seemed to love it, and I was excited to scrapbook these photos of the back of his head (ha) as he took in the lights.

Winter Winderland

Here are a few things about this layout:

  • I used this layout as my guide to the design.
  • Though I love the patterned paper I used as the background, I wanted to tone it down a little around the photos to ensure they would stand out. So I applied white gesso to the page. As you can see, it softens¬†the pattern but still allows it to show through.
  • This is the first page in my Something Old, Something New YouTube series, where I combine newer products with older products. Another endeavor in my effort to use my extensive stash. In this case, I combined recent Stampin’ Up! paper with some older rub-ons, cardstock scraps, and vellum.
