I am still playing with the contents of the March Messy Box. Here’s another page I made with it.
I have tried to scrapbook this photo several times, but I kept not knowing what to do with it. The orange background of the photo itself is not quite orange and not quite coral, so I always got stuck when I tried to choose a color scheme. I came across it again and decided to try the Messy Box patterns with it. Instead of trying to find a perfect match for the color, I went with a patterned paper that has a variety of colors. That turned out to do the trick, though I like the way the gray polka-dot paper keeps the photo from being overwhelmed by the rest of the colors.
From there, creating the page was pretty simple. I added a title, made two other small embellishment clusters, and dropped some mist.
Fun fact: The patterned paper I used for the base of this layout actually has a heart border on one side of the page. I covered up most of the hearts so that it just looked like a scalloped edge. It’s on the left side of the layout.
