5 Liftable Ideas from 1 Scrapbook Page by Wilna Furstenberg | Get It ScrappedIt’s the accumulation of well-chosen and carefully crafted details that create a masterful scrapbook page. Check out 5 details on “Your Grace is More Than Enough” by Wilna Furstenberg (shared in a recent GIS Membership special event) and see if one or two of them can inspire scrapbook page ideas for your next page.

Wilna’s page is an art journaling page that is feminine, spiritual and vulnerable. She mixes soft and sweet with big and bold in a page that is about her growing confidence in her life’s story.  

Your Grace Is More Than Enough by Wilna Furstenberg

5 Liftable Ideas from 1 Scrapbook Page by Wilna Furstenberg | Get It Scrapped

1. Create your own brush script title.

Wilna’s hand-painted brush-script title is a charming detail that brings elegance and focus to her scrapbook page. The black ink pops against the softer colors on the page while the swoopy strokes still manage to create a feminine feel. Try adding a brush script title to your next scrapbook page–all you need is ink, a small pointed brush and a little bit of practice!

2. Use mixed media to make a one of kind base for your page.

The colors and texture that Wilna creates with her mixed media base is what gives her page so much visual oomph. Start with a white canvas, then choose mixed media in colors that complement your photo or products and try layering them onto your canvas in fun and exciting ways.

3. Turn a page from a book into a timeless scrapbook page accent.

Don’t you just love that scalloped border that Wilna has fashioned out of an old book page? This charming touch is the perfect addition to her page.  If you don’t you have an old book that you’re willing to part with, you might be able to find one in your local library’s discards or at a neighborhood garage sale.  The great news is one book can be used to make HUNDREDS of  scrapbook page embellishments.

4. Be vulnerable.

Wilna’s large block of hand-journaled thoughts are heartfelt and vulnerable. Often we aren’t as keen on sharing the less shiny and happy parts of our lives on our scrapbook pages but Wilna suggests it can be empowering “to own your story” in this way. Give it a try and put yourself out there on your next scrapbook page.

5. Get your own hand-drawn art onto the page.

Wilna loves finding fun ways to incorporate her hand-painted art onto her pages. In fact her passion for this encouraged her to start making her own die cuts and offering them for sale on her site iheart studio.  There are lots of ways to include your own hand-drawn or hand-painted art on the page. For more ideas check out this month’s article “Ideas for Creating Hand-Drawn and Hand-Painted Patterns to Use on Your Scrapbook Pages.”

Scrapbook Ideas for Journaling In Your Own Hand | Get It ScrappedIn the Get It Scrapped Membership class “Journaling,” Dina Wakley said the following about hand journaling:

I teach art journaling classes all over the world, and one of the most common complaints I hear is, ?I hate my handwriting!

I want to tell you a secret about your handwriting. I hope this secret is life-changing. You need to trust me. The secret is: the only person who hates your handwriting is YOU.

I assure you that when your family and friends see your handwriting, they do not think, ?Wow, her handwriting really stinks. Instead, they are reading what you wrote, they are processing your meaning, and they are feeling touched by the time it took you to handwrite your thoughts.

Another reason I love to handwrite my journaling is because handwriting is very personal. It’s one of the ways I make my mark on my scrapbook pages, one of the ways I put myself into my scrapbooking.

So, where do you come down on handwriting on your scrapbook pages? If you’re looking for ideas and support for getting more of your handwriting onto the page, check out these ideas and tips from our Creative Team.

Devra Hunt says, “This page shares feelings I’ve been having about my son and myself–what we have taught and learned from each other throughout his life.”

“The main reason I use my own handwriting on my pages is, it’s faster. I don’t pre-write anything. There is no formatting, or font choosing for me. I write free flowing so it comes out the way I talk. Someone reading would know to read it in my voice. After much experimenting, I found a medium point, hard nub ink pen that I”m comfortable with.”

“Often if I’m writing just a sentence or two, I will underline my writing, giving it emphasis, so it doesn’t get lost on the page.”

Nicole Jones says, ” I wanted to document the reality of what my life has been as an Emergency Medical Dispatcher over the last 10 years and how the profession had affected and changed my life. In our family’s story I want to present a complete view of what our family life is like, and how working as a dispatcher has had an impact on our everyday lives. The long hours and shift work is heavily demanding not only myself but on the people around me.”

“Even though I don’t always love my handwriting, I still believe it’s important to use my own handwriting for journaling on my layouts, as it feels like I’m writing down our family’s history. I’ve done a few pages for each of the kids where I’ve written them letters so that, as they are going through the albums years from now, they will find a letter written with love about how important each of them are to me and also a few words of wisdom.”

“To make journaling a little more interesting, I like to add different textures such as stickers, enamel dots, letter stickers, and stamps.  Some of my favorite tools to use are my Staedtler pens, Muji pens (.38 & .50), and Project Life cards (Grid cards).”

“To make my hand journaling a little easier to read, I usually prepare 7 to 8 page kits, gather photos for those layouts, stick a recipe card in each one, then I sit down and journal on the recipe cards for all the page kits prepared. When I focus on journaling I find that the words come easier to me and I am able to make it more heartfelt.”

“Make sure to check out my Youtube channel where I will discuss this topic in greater detail.”

Cynthia T. says, “This is an art journal pagemade after returning from a trip to see family. Sad and with little energy to do much, occupied by the problems at the time, I just wrote exactly what passed through my mind. Sometimes it all makes sense when reading later. Sometimes is just a good way to see in a much clearer way the next step to take when seeing the words down in paper. I drew the face and then the hair, and did the writing  last. I did the writing upside down as I know it means things were upside down in my own emotional time then.”

“I love using my own hand writing, I have kept a hand written diary/journal for as long as I can remember, and even on my digital pages, I hardly ever use a font that is not hand writing or script, I like the handmade feel of handwriting, and I think the other fonts  give a different feel to the page. As I was very unwell, and couldn’t write, I blended a photo of a page of my handwritten journaling to a digital paper on hard light blend mode, the selected the flowers and stars and added them.

“I have a fountain pen with black ink which I love using. I have different types of markers, but usually use the Pound/Dollar store gel pens. I also often do what I did here: photograph my own journaling, be that only text or text & drawing, and then blend the photo into a digital page.”

Kristy T. says, “My youngest son has had a slight stutter and some problems with his speech fluency and clarity, but he has worked really hard on smoothing out the ‘bumpy’ talking and doing ‘big’ talking for his clarity. This page documents and celebrates his hard work and improvement.”

“I like using my handwriting because I can create and fill spaces on the layout to be part of the design of my page. It feels like my pages are more personal, and it often makes the process quicker and easier. On this page, I created bubbles to represent his speech. I used the same watercolor pencils to keep the text the same color blue for continuity. If you make a mistake using watercolor pencils you can always add water to blend out the mistake: wait until it dries, and then re-write.  It is important to wait until the paper is dry before writing with watercolor pencils for clear lines.”

Other tips for handwriting:

  • do a quick draft of your journaling on scrap paper so you can see how much space it will take on your page
  • use good pens that you are comfortable writing with
  • use waterproof pens so you have flexibility to add mist or other wet mediums to your page.

Jana Oliveira says, “This is an art journal page with self reflection and journaling about my personal thoughts.”

“I don’t like my handwriting a lot, but as a digital scrapbooker I know that on those pages, it’s easy for me to give up on because I could just type the journaling. And so when I make paper journals, I sometimes use my own handwriting.”

“In digital scrapbooking I’ve found the best tool to get my handwriting on the page is a wacom tablet . I use a Wacom Intuos Art and a Mr. Natural Brush from Kyle Brushes. The key to digital handwriting is to to use pencil or natural brushes and make sure the size is really small. Do not use thick brushes.”

Christy Strickler says, “This page is about our new kitten, who, my husband jokes, acts more like a squirrel than a cat.”

“I feel it’s important to use my own handwriting on layouts because it adds a more personal touch. I cherish old photographs with notes from my Grandmother and Mother. I hope that my handwritten journaling will have that same connection for my son and his future children. My handwriting is horrible. I have to tell myself to slow down and write with precision, so that it is more legible. I rarely write directly on the layout. Instead,I use journal cards or journal strips so that if I make an error, I can simply start over again.”

Ideas for Creating Hand-Drawn and Hand-Painted Patterns to Use on Your Scrapbook Pages | Get It ScrappedThe popularity of travelers’ journals and planners has been driving many a memorykeeper to start creating their own hand-drawn images. And those images often lend themselves to a repeating pattern. In this gorgeous and original blog post, our team shares their fresh approaches to making hand-drawn and hand-painted patterns for their scrapbook pages.

Marcia Fortunato says, “If you’ve spent any time with a little one, you know that most of them go through a stage of constantly asking questions. Recently I babysat my two-and-a-half year old grandson for a couple of days and by the end my head was spinning – why? How come? What’s that? Why? Why? I felt like it had been a constant game of Twenty Questions! This design with questions scattered around the page was inspired by that time with my grandson.”

“This was actually a very simple page – a few pieces of paper, letter stickers, and some pens, plus my photos. I wanted to repeat the Whys and question marks, and this patterned paper with triangular blocks made it easy since it gave defined spots to fill. To experiment I first tried the lettering in a block that I knew would be covered by the photo. Then I wrote the first words in pencil and traced over them with marker. Once I had done a few, I finished the rest by free-handing the letters with the Sharpie pen.”

Christy Strickler says, “This is the story of how our new kitten got her name.”

“My handdrawn paper is a subtle repetition of cats’ heads in the foundational piece just below the photo.”

To create my own hand-drawn patterned paper:  

  • I first drew four cats by hand.
  • I scanned the cat image, then use Photoshop and a program called Photoscissors to isolate just the cats.
  • Essentially, I created a digital stamped image of what I had drawn.
  • I then created a 8.5 x 11″ document in Photoshop and repeatedly stamped with the digital image I had created.

Jana Oliveira says, “This is an art journal page that conveys how grateful I am for my family.  I took the picture on Father’s Day.”

“I like geometric shapes because I think they work when your subjects are men but I have a tendency to go for more geometric elements over feminine ones regardless. So triangles, dots, and stars are patterns I often incorporate in my layouts. I also included a hand drawn phrase (Love you) to make it more personal.

To create my own hand-drawn digital pattern:

  • I used a Wacom Intuos Art Pen Tablet and drew the patterns and words in SketchBook Pro desktop version.
  • I put each drawing on its own Photoshop layer and saved  it as a psd file.
  • After drawing and saving the drawings in a psd file, I saved each individual drawing in a png file.
  • Finally, I used a product from Wendy Zine called Smart Paper Templates which lets you replace her smart files with your drawings or images to create your own patterned paper.

Marie-Pierre Capistran says, “This traveler’s notebook is telling the story of my house hunting trip to Prague. This spread specifically tells the story of the day we went to find our new house.”

“I don’t have many supplies on hand while in the process of moving and traveling, so creating my own patterns helps me embellish my notebook. I used my small watercolor palette with a water brush (the ones doe qhixh you can put water in the barrel) to paint these houses on the right page and the title on the left page. I started by sketching the houses with a pen, and I drew over them with a permanent marker. Finally, I painted each house slightly, making sure I didn’t use too much water since this paper is not made for watercolors.”

“To get inspiration for the different houses in my patterned paper, I drove around and I snapped pictures of houses I thought were interesting and beautiful.”

Kristy T. says, “I created my hand-drawn patterns using watercolor pencils and waterproof marker pen. I drew the ovals directly onto the background paper and lightly added water with a fine tipped paintbrush. The stars, flowers and swirls were also drawn using watercolor pencil and blended with water.  You can dab off excess color and water using paper towel.  After the paper was dry I added the black pen.”

“The patterns were inspired by the theme of the page, the stars on the umbrella, and some of the journaling.  I used to doodle flowers and swirls when I was younger, so they were a familiar pattern.”

TIP: When starting to experiment with hand drawn patterns, try on small pieces of paper first.

Summer Christiansen says, “This page records a photo I took of my kids on their last day of school”

To make my hand-drawn patterned paper I used this tutorial by Julia Rothman.  I hand drew my pattern and then scanned it into Adobe Illustrator. Then I drew some more with my wacom tablet and pulled the finished product into Photoshop to add to my page.  My process was to draw, cut and flip, and then cut and flip again, and then tape it all together.

“After researching trendy color combos, I was surprised to find hundreds of color palettes thought of as the hottest picks for 2016. In the end, I picked the colors that suited the mood and personality of my layout.”

In my opinion, this quote from DesignBolts defines the magic of color perfectly “….it is never a blind game, if we look around, rainbow, butterfly and even sky gives us the implications that this world is full of insignia. In flowers, in orchards in nature what we find is the magic of God who has beautifully drawn this cosmos in all shades whether dark or light.”

Shanna Hystad says, ” This page is about a recent family vacation to the Big Island of Hawaii. It highlights the kids and young adults in our family and the special time we had together.”

“The color combo I chose goes by a few descriptors, including: Orange and Turquoise, Aqua and Orange, Teal and Tangerine. These colors originally stood out to me when I was in the Starbucks store in Hawaii.  There was a ‘Teal and Tangerine’ water bottle on the shelf that caught my eye.  I loved the color combination. I know that the Starbucks designers are always on trend which is what made me decide to use this as my inspiration.  Pinterest is full of photos featuring this color combo in weddings, home décor, clothing, and paint colors.”

“I wanted something bright and fun to compliment my tropical photos.  I knew that I was going to use a white background which would make these colors pop even more.”

Cynthia T. says, ” I wanted to give our living room a fresh look, change the tired (at least for us) teals, and renew the energy without need of much work or money spent. After lots of research, Pantone’s ‘Peach Echo’ from this spring’s color forecast, seemed to be the perfect addition to complement the other colors already in our living room.”

“It seemed fitting to use my chosen home color palette to record the transformation on a scrapbook page.  I found my final palette for this page at Concepts & Colorways, but my initial color research and inspiration also came from pantone, ko-te.com and Wayfair.com all of which are great resources for color inspiration.”

Sian Fair says, “This page is about my son and daughter sharing a car now that they both have their driving test.”

“I chose a pairing of pink and kelly green after spotting it on pictures from catwalk shows this season. It’s a good fit for this story because it combines a traditionally masculine color with a feminine one for a story about the battle of the sexes.”

Kelly Prang says, ” This is the story of my daughter and her first trip to the beach as a toddler. I had visions of a tranquil and introspective photoshoot, but when she felt the sand, she was out of there! She took off back up the boardwalk toward our car. I had to learn that I can not micromanage everything.”

“I found my color scheme on The Knot, a site about wedding planning. They offer lots of mood boards and insights into color trends. I loved the soothing tones of pale blue, dark blue, green and brown. It felt like a perfect fit for my photos of sand, water and boardwalk. I also added lots of white to keep the calm mood.”

Devra Hunt says, “This family vacation was carefree, relaxing and full of silly selfies. A close-up of my son and me with our mouths full of braces is one of many taken that week.”

“I used a bright color combination of Chartreuse, Azalea and Carrot with touches of gray called Flashy, that I found on a wedding trend website called MagnetStreet. They describe this combination trend : “Chartreuse is boldly fun and the ultimate in uniqueness! Neons are nearly everywhere these days, and weddings are no exception. This palette shows that neon hues can still be classy and simple, especially when grounded with a neutral.”

“When I think of summer, I think of bright, warm colors. Here, they contrast the blue in the photo so it stands out. I used silver in place of gray. It adds more shine, like sun glistening on water.”

Scrapbook Ideas for Creating Pages with Rich Layers | Get It Scrapped

Scrapbook page layering has a number of design and storytelling benefits:

1. Layering adds visual interest
2. Layering adds texture and dimension
3. Layering allows you to shape interesting white space
4. Layering gives you the opportunity to incorporate meaningful
images and motifs
5. Layering lets you reveal your personal style
6. Layering is a way to to have fun and play with interesting
patterns, textures, and images

See the many ways the Get It Scrapped Creative Team has added “rich layers” to their scrapbook pages.

Sian Fair says, “This page records the boots my daughter received as a birthday present.”

“Recently I’ve been experimenting with adding gelatos to my pages: here I applied gesso over an old schoolbook page and then put it through my typewriter to add journaling before layering on a little color and stamping. I wanted a subtle effect to enforce the idea of my daughter, at eighteen, being in between school and the next stage..it’s still there in the background. As I don’t have a 12″ x 12″ printer I have been enjoying using a smaller size canvas so that I can combine crisp, typewritten journaling with messy paint layers.”

Audrey Tan says, “This page showcases a photo from a shoot I did with my best friends. I see them once a year–whenever I visit Singapore–and we hang out and have fun.”

“I filled the background here with digital transfers and overlays, and I clustered and layered my photo with many embellishments. I felt the rich layers worked with this photo because my friends are artistic and that’s was how I met them: through scrapbooking. One of them is an expert at layering with the physical stash so this is my tribute to her–in a digital version!”

Marcia Fortunato says, “We have a fairly large yard with several garden areas, all planted by our homes’ previous owner. This layout is about the perennial garden along the side of our house which is particularly colorful at this time of year, despite the fact that I haven’t spent much time caring for it. I just love its easy beauty.”

“I knew I wanted a base layer that had loose stripes of color to mimic the waves of color in my garden. I used Distress Stains and Hero Arts ink daubers, both of which give saturated colors, and I painted stripes of color on white cardstock. I felt that it needed a frame, so I mounted it on the black and white flowered patterned paper, but to further tie the two together I colored in a few of the flowers. On top of the inked paper I stamped flowers in black to mimic the patterned paper and hand-drew stems and leaves, then I covered the entire piece with vellum to tone it down. To keep the focus on the photos I mounted them on hand-painted watercolor paper.”

“I wanted to use colored letter stickers for the word color in my title, but I was having trouble finding letters that stood out enough from the background. I discovered that I could use these pink letters by layering them on top of similar black letters. This kept them from blending in. I finished with a few simple supporting embellishments as my last layer.

The layered look works well for this layout because it mimics the layers of flowers and colors in my garden. I like the colorful background because it reminds me of the waves of color that struck me when I first saw this garden after it bloomed. The watercolored paper echoes the green leaves and grass and the blue sky.”

“When you are creating layers, if you end up with a layer that is just too bold and overpowers the rest of your layout, try to find something that can be layered on top of it to tone it down and bring it into harmony with the other elements. This could be vellum, as I used, a thin layer of white paint, ink, or gesso, or other layers of paints, mists, or inks using a mask.”

Stefanie Semple says, “I though this would make an awesome photo book cover for a short winter break we took recently.”

“I started with a wood grain paper that looks like a table top, then added a journal with bits and pieces overflowing, and scattered around goodies that one might find on a desk. Flowers, natural elements and some vellum layers complete the messy desktop look. This cover serves to give a glimpse of our trip and hopefully makes one want to delve deeper into the pages. I love digital mess, it is so much easier to clean up.”

Nicole Mackin says, “Since I had already scrapbooked our experience of going to Phantom of the Opera, I used this leftover photo to document the girls and me getting all dressed up.”

“I used items in my layers that would reflect the concept of getting dressed up ‘fancy’ as well as the atmosphere of the beautiful theater we were at. The glitter, gold, and florals throughout the larger and smaller layers accomplish this.  One tip for creating rich layers is to pull items of different sizes, colors, and textures that help tell the story and work them in under and around each other until you have a finished and balanced look. I also like to put adhesive in the middle of my loose items at first and when I know I am done tucking things in, I fully adhere them down.”

“I wanted my layers to reflect fancy and feminine, so I used pink and a couple different florals and mixed them with the bold black and white striped background which pulled out the colors of our dresses. I used a lot of hearts to signify the love I was feeling sharing the experience with my girls, gold to bring in the fancy aspect, and included a variety of textures to add interest to the page such as the acetate pieces and a white vellum bag to pull in some softness and delicacy, the glitter and shiny gold pieces to reflect the fancy theme, and the washi, cork, and puffy stickers to add dimension and detail.”

Kelly Prang says, “This page is about our annual tradition of having a cousin photo shoot. We live about 13 hours drive from all of my kids cousins, so usually only get to see them once a year. I wanted to make sure that the kids all know how much family really does matter.”

“I used wood veneer, a vellum doily, measuring tape, ephemera, tags, paper strips, stamping, string and a flair. My tip is to have vellum and punched holes or shapes to help give a glimpse of another layer. I scrap digitally, so don’t have to worry about adhesive but I do Like to keep things realistic and not have a dimensional element with something flat covering part of it. The multiple layers help convey the idea that we are all better when we come together- and different strengths and weaknesses are balanced out when we are with our family.”
