The First

Hello everyone,

Today I want to share my very first Scrapbook page with you guys...
My hubby has been asking me to make one for more than year now...to document all our adventures when we were is US...
But I just couldnt make one...everytime I tried to start...I used to end up staring at all the photos and patterned papers....Gosh...it seemed so overwhelming.....

Then a few days ago...I realised that a scrapbook page shouldn't necessarily have pattern papers and a specific layout...I cant just start by doodling...and it seemed to ease me down....

I wanted to make a page for the time when we attended Luau in Hawaii...This one has been long over due...
I started doodling on one corner....and then coloured the doodle with Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade...two yummy yellow/orange shades... :)


Then I spritzed it with water and had some fun....I directed the water drops in different directions to give the effect of rays....
And then I went splatter crazy with the same colours...splatter here...splatter there...and the background was complete....



Now I had to add the title, location and other details to the layout...but I did not want to write some text and disturb the background.... So I came up with an idea...
I doodled a border frame and wrote all the details around the frame... My hubby just loved this idea...




Hope you guys like it.
I am a beginner scrapbooker...so would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
