How to scrap the "not-so-great" photos...


Board-game-fun

So I had these "not-so-great" photos of the nephews playing a board game with grandma. The bright yellow board game was really very distracting. *winks*


Well, you've heard the expression, "Fight fire with fire." right? So I threw on more bright colours!

For instance, the bright red patterned paper mat gave the photos an "insta-lift" and made them appear a tad more interesting, right? [That's my story and I'm sticking to it! *hehe*]


Then I finished with a mix of different textures to add to the illusion of interesting photos. Did it work? *LOL*

You did extremely well in overcoming the bright colors and provided a distraction which actually enhanced the overall look of the layout. The embellishments make the photos look special.

Works a treat! looove the red & also that the paper up top is plain, so it balances it nicely! I See you were one of the winners over at ARTastic......well done you!

It absolutely worked! This is fabulous, Yvonne! Seriously one of my top favorites of yours! I actually love those photos, and love how you layered and arranged them. Such a great memory for the boys to cherish forever. The papers and primary colors you used are perfect. This rocks!!
