Often I struggle when it comes to using banners on my page. I found that it was so easy to use this when I had the loose grid on the page. It felt like it belonged in that corner and the chipboard title nestled perfectly underneath.
Embossing is a technique that I just don't do enough! I always love the results and the green helps to pull in the few other green accents that I have on the page.
I decided to outline the banner as well so that it wouldn't get lost on the bold orange paper. This kit came with so many embellishments! I used quite a few on all of my layouts and I still have a ton left.
Here is my process video if you'd like to take a peek.
Next up is my layout for the Crafty Maven channel. The mood board this week is so bright and fun. My initial thought was the Summer Daydreams collection by PhotoPlay. Sadly, I don't have it so I used the Sunshine & Happiness collection by Simple Stories.
Disclaimer: I used a sketch for inspiration and I cannot find it at the moment. I don't like to use things without giving credit, so if I find it I will link it :)
Again, I chose to outline the paper layers so that they would really stand out. The 4x4 card makes the perfect title and I thought it was perfect for these photos.
I love these colors together. For added interest I looped some thread in each of the clusters and chose colors that weren't as dominant.
This girl is one of my favorite images in this collection and I thought she was perfect for this page. I need to look up the date of these photos and then I will finish this journaling spot. I am a procrastinator when it comes to things like this, but I am trying to get better :)
Here's a link to my video. I'd love for you to check it out. Have a wonderful day my friends!
