The bright and punchy watermelon pink scrapbook layout of Ginza’s sushi (smoked salmon and mango rolls and Firecracker rolls with fresh scallops, crunchy tempura, chives, and spicy mayo sweet chili sauce) and new menu to accompany last week’s Ginza sushi post! The inspiration? The gorgeous artificial pink and violet tropical flower by our table! The flower wasn’t there the last time I was at Ginza (in Yorkville) and I thought it was beautiful and wanted to build a scrapbook layout inspired by the colours and the shape, hence the wildly abstract cardstock flowers I made with cardstock. There wasn’t any rhyme or reason to it – I took my scalloped scissors and went to town on 4 colours of cardstock! I used the scissors to create abstract floral shapes, using the edges to create petals somewhat. I stuck with a purple, pink, and yellow palette with a few pops of beige and green to round it out and the rest of the layout just fell into place. Check out my very first Ginza post and scrapbook layout using a red, white, gray, navy blue, and grass green colour palette inspired by the tea cups, edamame beans, and my outfit!
