Another in the series of scrapbook layouts, Hangin’ Out in a Bloom, is a simple two-photograph layout with paper borders and minimum embellishments.
I’d been admiring these wonderful irises aware there were several large bumble bees flying around. When I uploaded the photos I was thrilled to see I’d captured a bee on the flower. plus another on it’s way, it’s wings fluttering so fast it looks like a bundle of fluff suspended in the air. (Larger photo below.)
I have another photo of some birds with a large spot in the middle of the background. As I usually use the burst mode on my digital camera this confused me as the mark was not in the other photos. When I zoomed in on the image in Photoshop, I saw it was another bumble bee – not in focus this time, but interesting just the same. Guess it was just that time of year.
The two layouts below are the same except the one on the left uses a white mat behind the photographs and the one on the right (and above) uses Lifted Photos by Melissa Renfro which gives a slightly more realistic look to the photographs.
I also used papers and a few embellishments from the Refresh digital scrapbooking pack.
Scrapbook layouts do not have to be elaborate; simple is beautiful too.
