After going through a bunch of Easter pictures and layouts I noticed there was a common theme that I was scrapbooking. I'm sure you will know exactly what I'm talking about . . . coloring eggs, bunny baskets, kids hunting eggs, finding the golden egg.

For this layout I wanted to take a different approach AND a different photography scene. I decided to use three photos that were more silly than usual. The pictures were playful so I wanted to keep the layout just that—playful. I love that My Digital Studio has lots of fun digital art that worked perfect for my layout.

I did a lot of searching through my downloads to find paper patterns I thought would work with an Easter theme and loved recoloring them to match my layout. This is such a great tool in MDS.   

One of my favorite things I added to this layout was the chicken wire overlay from Bunch of Backgrounds, and then I decreased the opacity so it wasn't too bright to overshadow my other elements.

For the Easter eggs in the bottom right corner, I used the patterned egg from Easter Blossoms. I placed a Very Vanilla egg from Celebrate Easter behind each decorative egg to make the colors pop a little more.

Another fun digital art piece I added was the Paper Doilies. When placing them on your layout, make sure you adjust the drop shadow so that you can really see the paper doilies pop off the page. With just a little shadow under the doilies you can really get extensive texture for your layout or project. I love how real these look.

I can't wait to create more digital Easter layouts this year while keeping in mind a few different photography shots to change things up a bit.

Here are a few out of the box ideas to think of when photographing Easter shots:

  • Pics of the Easter shoes your kids wear
  • Easter décor in your home
  • Just the child's hands decorating the eggs
  • Easter morning routine
  • Church you attend Easter morning
  • Easter traditions

Whatever you create, enjoy every minute of it.
