BeautifulBoy - Limited Color Palette


BeautifulBoy - Limited Color Palette

This is a page for a good friend. I’m making a book for her as a present for her son’s high school graduation. She loves the song by John Lennon, Beautiful boy, and asked me to incorporate the song into a layout of her son when he was a little boy.
Using all neutrals, created a serene and tranquil mood, harmonious the with lyrics. To create a focal point, I used higher values on the blended photo. The slightly darker/lower values on the torn page and Jake’s necklace add contrast. The varying textures of the embellishments and the brushes keep the page from becoming monotonous.
