So inspired by this months Mood Board over at JotMagazine and hosted by Beshka! It is so beautiful and uplifting and inspiring. And so not the colors usually played with by this here layout creator. But who could resist!
This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of jamiepate . com. I do receive financial compensation and material product from American Crafts to develop my craft posts, but all ideas and opinions are my own.
For this page the tones were calmed down just a tad. But PinkPaislee's Citrus Bliss was the perfect collection as the base for crafting this page. The pops of orange and green hues really carried the feel of this story.The touch of pink came by way of some Heidi Swapp September Skies Color Magic Die Cut pieces sprayed with Blush. Darn that Blush...it just makes anything so soft and delicate. It really is a beautiful color. Blush Color Shine also colored some of the Die Cut Color Magic paper from the new Mixed Media set found at Michaels. The lift that the die cut gives this layout is perfect.
Texture Paste, that is like a modeling paste, but on glam steroids. Did I say obsessed? Because pretty sure you can count on finding that medium on many pages going forward. It is just that beautiful.
Citrus Bliss pattern paper was a great pop of the tangerine found in the mood board. Layered with Puffy Words from that collection as well. Some strips of pattern paper are notched and tucked underneath along with more of the Die Cut paper as well as some stash from Maggie Holmes Open Book.
Life is good and needs to be celebrated. The story for this page is included in some hidden journaling. Did not want my hand lettering to get in the way. But this was an important moment in time for this girl, and it needed to be recorded and added to her album of memories. My love for paper and color and all things pretty continues to fuel telling these stories. So thankful to Jot for providing fabulous inspiration to do just that.
Till next time...blessings.
