Birthday Fun


Design Elements
Inspiration Source: Simple Scrapbooks Mag
Application Used: Photoshop
Page Elements: KiddyKitDesigns
For Download: Sketch, Color Swatch

Work Flow Process: 
1. Sketch – chose sketch
2. Color Swatch – dark with a splash of color
3. Page Elements – chose the page elements
4. Photo – to support swatch
5. Assembly





Design Instructions:
1. Add plain black background paper
2. Layer grey paper on top of side paper and attach to the background paper
3. Add two grep thin paper strips
4. Add ballon elements to top and left of design
5. Add circle embellishment
6. Layer black paper on top of purple paper and add to the design
7. Add photos
8. Add journaling
9. Add bow to the right of the journaling
10.Add tag embellishment below journaling
11.Add title

Concept:
I wanted this design to use colors that were more masculine. The colors were needed to represent my niece’s misunderstanding at a birthday party. Initially she couldn’t grasp of the concept of having to share – the day was not about her. On the bright side children are very adaptable and a purple balloon was all it took to turn her frown completely upside down.
