Paperscape Layout featuring Scarlett by Marion Smith Designs

One of my favourite ways to scrapbook is to create paperscapes.   This involves creating a scene using papers and embellishments, and usually incorporates lots of layers and fussy cutting!  In this layout I used a photo of my daughter when she was still a kindergartner!  I love the shot of her, but alas there was another child in the background - most unfortunately exploring her nostril with her finger!!!  I really had no choice but to cut her out and silhouette the remaining image!


Once I had committed to doing this, the theme of the layout just started to evolve.  The look of wonder on my daughter Meg's face lent itself to creating something magical.  The Scarlet range of papers that Marion has in her printables range was perfect for this.  And no magical layout is quite complete with a wee spinkling of fairies is it?!!

To soften the look of the cream Bazzill background I used Viva Modelling Cream in Pearl with a damask stencil.  Not too overbearing but just enough to soften the look.
