Volcanoes National Park Layout

It's a bit hard to find good papers to go with volcanoes. After all, it's not something you scrapbook every day! I wanted to pick up the grey of the landscape without drowning my layout in it, so I applied Greg Wool ink to my brayer and rolled it over White Daisy Textured cardstock. I still got a little bit of white to show through, and the grey coordinates nicely with the pictures. Random stamping the flower centers from the Rustic Flowers stamp set allowed me to pick up a few other colors from my pictures. Not sure what I was thinking, dressing Elliot in orange and green and then putting a red windbreaker on him. Throw in some blue jackets and my MIL's pink outfit, and we have almost every color under the sun to try to coordinate. After much deliberation (my DH would say way too much), I decided to pick up the blue from the jackets and the orange from my shirt, since none of the pinks I had went with the pinks in the picture. I had a lot of extra photos, but I didn't want to scrapbook 4 or 5 layouts of the volcano, so using the pattern Everything in Its Place from Imagine allowed me to create a folder to house a few more photos.

I love it. It is hard to scrap landscapes sometimes without drowning out the beauty. You did a fantastic job!
