I have begun work on my Year in Alaska scrapbook. I knew I wanted to use purple this week, and I was excited to use cards from Big City Quiet, which I bought here. I love Rachel's honest blog, and I am becoming obsessed with her simple, clean, but bright, work. If you are not familiar with her go check her out!
I looked through my albums, searching for the purple alpenglow I wanted to play with this week. Alpenglow happens when the sun sets opposite from a mountain range. The mountains appear purple. Not only did I find what I was looking for, but I noticed some pops of orange, and decided I want to play with that. Here are the tools I could have chosen from:
Sorry for the glare, I was in bed taking pictures that morning. Better pictures to come. I also had some embellishings I could choose from:
In the end I kept it simple. I love colors and I love keeping it simple.
I love how the map looks next to the currently card:
I love journaling on pictures. The photo in the upper right hand corner came out perfectly:
I love how the orange cards pulled out the orange pops, as did the purple cards with the overall purple glow.
I love splitting 4x6 photos into 2 3x4 pictures.
I love the black dots on white, with the purple google pin. That card, and the BE IN THE MOMENT (good reminder) card are my favorites in this set.
I love that all these photos were taken after 10pm, and some after 11pm!
I love that we camped right on a beach.
I love the orange rock that I took a picture of, but did not take for my collection. I left it on the beach for someone else to find.
One of my favorite layouts!
