I love making photobooks of travel or event photos, and one of the most satisfying ways to do it is to make ‘messy pocket’ pages - pages with spots for photos and journal cards or patterned paper, broken up with messy stitching, torn paper and some paint and blended style photo spots.
There is a new set in this week’s release at The Lilypad.
I used them to scrap some pages about our recent travels …
The beauty of them, for me, is that it is a quick and easy creative process, yet you end up with pages which work together as one cohesive whole, rather than just a set of photos on a page.
‘Merry Old Soul’ collection
On the first Friday of the month all the designers at The Lilypad are given a palette to work with to create elements, kits and collections that all work together, enabling you to ‘Build Your Own Collection’.
This month I have the new “Merry Old Soul” collection
The whole collection includes the digital backgrounds (‘papers’) plus fun elements, journal cards and mixed media elements (paints).
I am experimenting with different ways to offer the collections in order to meet more peoples’ creative needs.
While cards are lots of fun, I know some people may prefer a kit without them but which bundles up the mixed media along with the papers and elements - so that is the so-called ‘packed kit’ that you will see in store.
But you can also buy the cards and mixed media transfers on their own OR a kit option (just the papers and elements) OR a ‘packed kit’ option (the paper, elements and mixed media)
