Hi Cocoa Vanilla friends,
Nikki here 🙂
Today I will show you a scrapbook layout I´ve made with the Midnight collection with a cute birthday theme. This collection fits perfectly to the photo of my sweet little brother when he was a few days old. The focus of the background is the big cake on the right side. As a candle on the cake serves the big chipboard heart. It underlines the love I feel for the little boy.
For the cake I used the papers called strip, inky depths and sunset strip. For some extra style I tored off the papers instead of cutting them. Some of the layers of the cake are rounded off by the painted seam with a white gel pen. I framed the photo and the cake in flowers and leaves that makes the layout romantic. The photo is layered on tissue paper and the paper called mixed blessing.
I deliberately designed the background only with splashes of paint to keep the focus on the cake and sweet photo. For the background you can use many different colors, which are in the collection or harmonize well with it. I like the dark berry tone the most. This gives the layout even more dimension and highlights the photo and the cake from the white background. The whole layout is layered on the paper called sophisticated.
I hope you had fun and are inspired by this beautiful Midnight collection. Thank you so much for stopping by the Cocoa Vanilla blog and make sure to share your projects with us!
See you soon and happy creating!
