Winter Season Fun!
Hello Simple Stories friends and fans!
Nathalie with you today to celebrate the arrival of Winter (here in the Northern Hemisphere) with a colorful and fun layout using the beautiful Simple Stories new line Freezin' Season. Though, Toronto-Canada has yet to get some snow, i have so many memories of snowfalls past, and the colors in the collection were perfect to bring the fun of Winter to my scrapbook album.
To start, a bit of white acrylic paint was added to the Hello Winter paper -this hazes the pattern in the background, while creating a whiter canvas for the layout-. While the paint dried, the"Winter" cut file (from Paige Evans) was cut from white cardstock, and backed with papers from the Freezin' Season collection.
The cut out was placed on a slant on the background, so that it adds playfulness to the page. The picture was backed with papers from the collection ( the element pages are a great to layer and back pictures!), and then it was nestled in between the background and the cut out.
Since the picture shows my niece holding a snowball, i decided to continue the circle motive throughout the page. For this all the circle snowflake embellishments from the collection were used to create clusters around the picture, along with some die cuts and stickers. Love all the colors!
To complete the title of the page, a cluster of snowflake embellishments was created at the top left corner of the cut out. Here the the "Freezin'" chipboard was added. In a similar manner the "Season" chipboard sticker was added at the opposite -diagonally- corner of the cut out, so that the title reads "Freezin' Winter Season".
Those circle snowflakes were perfect to create clusters around the layout. Some were tucked under the cut out, while others are floating on the page along with sticker words and embellishments from the collection. Just a few lines of journal and some white ink were the final touches of this page.
I hope this inspires you to check the colorful designs and colors of the Simple Stories' Freezin' Season collection. It is the perfect collection to document all those happy Winter memories.
