Below is an example of how Amanda has used inspiration from Pinterest in her scrapbooking.
Amanda says, “I love nothing more than a white page foundation and a few splatters of paint on my scrapbook pages, so when I found a pin of an art piece by Antoinette Murphy I knew I wanted to incorporate the idea into a layout. I recreated the design in my own way with watered down acrylic paint, and then added some neutral elements and a black and white photo so that the colourful paint drops were the main focus. I then painted a chipboard heart with the same yellow paint used on the background to bring forward some of that colour.”
Amanda lives in Devon in the UK with her husband and 9 year old son, Lewis. She has an eclectic scrapbooking style–in which one day she will find herself creating a very minimal, graphic project and the next a textured project with layers of pretty papers and embellishments. One thing that is almost always present in her layouts is ample white space and, lately, she seems to have been bitten by the electronic die-cutting bug!
