Get It Scrapped: Storytelling with Scallops

There are times when I like to use bold patterned paper designs and bright colors to tell my story. When I do so, I like to find ways to soften things a bit.The scallop design is trendy and has a way of softening hard lines. Scalloped eyelet is soft and full of texture. It blends surprisingly well with bold colors and is perfect for adding texture to a layout.

Personally, I associate eyelet with baby blankets. This association made it perfect for this layout about our new kitten. The grid design shows stability and there are many bright, bold patterns to convey excitement. Using the eyelet with the frames softened the feel of the page and added the delicate tone perfect for a new baby. The page feels fresh and new with a sense of bold playfulness.
