Elodie here today with a new page using the gorgeous Wild at Heart collection and a picture of my girls snapped in Turin back in April. This week is going to be all about the story on the CVS blog. For my layout, I went with typed journaling and told the story of the last day of our road trip to Italy last spring.
To echo this cute photo of my girls together, I went with the idea of the ampersand. I drew one on the beautiful Luscious paper using a template and cut it with craft scissors. I then layered it on squares that I cut out in the Grow Wild and Mariposa papers. I love the soft look of these pretty papers together!
I matted the pic with a piece of the Patchwork paper, placed it on the ampersand with foam squares and tucked a tag and a die cut from the ephemera pack under it. I then got busy adorning my paper ampersand with pretty Wild at Heart embellies: chipboard frames, fussy cut butterflies from the Mariposa paper, die cuts, a rubber charm, a chipboard piece, a wood veneer heart, a sticker and a wood veneer word for the title as well as a couple of enamel dots to add a bit of shine.
I don’t always use journaling on my layouts and, when I do, I tend to go for typed journaling. I usually print it on regular paper and cut it into strips that I glue only in the middle to add a little more dimension to my projects. Here, I placed my journaling strips on the left hand side of the page.
At that point, I felt like something was missing and decided to add a pop of color on the right side of the page with a piece of the lovely Double Dot paper. My layout was finally complete!
I hope this page inspires you to tell the story behind the photo and add journaling to your projects! Thank you so much for joining me today! Have a fantastic day!
