Music is a lot like digital scrapping: There are lots of different genres and ways of expressing your style. And switching scrapping styles is as easy switching the radio station! Scrappers love to experiment with different styles and themes. Energetic like rock, quiet like a lullaby, or smooth like jazz: all those styles can be found in the layouts below.
Music can be inspiring, relaxing, or energizing. And if you like to listen to music, you can scrap while you listen. I personally can’t scrap without a cup of coffee in my favorite mug (it’s my favorite because it’s really, really, ridiculously oversized) and my favorite tunes blasting from the speakers. Maybe your personal scrapping ritual is different, but music most likely has somehow, at some point, played a role in your life. Let the following layouts inspire you to scrap your favorite musical memories.
Music In You by Amy Peck
Kit: Make Mine Music Collab by Band Geek Design and Key Of D Designs, Coffeshop photo actions, Software: Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0, Font: DJB TRACYscript.
Design Notes: The layout uses paper
blocking, some clustering, and a bit of erasing of the ribbon in
order to create a realistic look. The title was made using word
art included in the kit.
Replay by Heather Sproul
Kit: Don't Stop Believing by Meghan Mullens and Libby Pritchett (Sweet Shoppe Designs), Template: Just A Sec by Connie Prince (Gotta Pixel), Software: Adobe CS4, Font: Miserably Lose.
I used an awesome template by Connie Prince. I try to keep my shadows less
obvious and I think it makes them more realistic.
Journaling: You got your MP3 for Christmas and the first song you wanted on it was “Replay”. You seriously listen to it continuously and now you have Gehrig obsessed with it too. You both love to sing what you know of the song over and over and over. Aunt Breezy reminded me that it is very reminiscent of me with my first tape player and the song “Achy Breaky Heart”. How embarrassing!
The Music in You by Stephanne Moorehead
Kit: Plentiful by Shabby Princess Designs, Guitar: A Little for Him by Creative Intentionz (Divine Digital), Software: Adobe Photoshop Elements 6, Fonts: Shortcut, Pea Devon.
Design Notes: To turn the black and
white photo a rich sepia color I selected a dark brown, flooded
a layer above the photo, and set the layer to overlay. Then I
played with the contrast on the picture until it looked just the
way I wanted to.
You've had music in you from the time you were born. Even as a baby, you
would choose music related toys over anything else available to
play with. This picture shows off your personality so perfectly.
You love music so much! March 2009 - 2.5 years
