Hey there friends, so glad you've made your way to my blog, via Caylee Grey blog during our monthly design team inspirational blog hop. April kits were super fun, filled with crisp bold colors and super cool pattern papers. I loved mixing it up and doing something different with my layout of my little man, Tyler.
I hand-cut the alphabet for his name from pattern paper you'll find in the main add-on kit. I also kept with my tone-on-tone element in the balance out the white space of my page foundation, by using cutouts from the digital files found in both the main and life pages kits. And I used mist, ha... that is something I rarely use on my layouts. But for this page, it's a great element and contrast with the stark white background. The style of this layout is different for me, but I love how freeing it was to create and stepping out of the box to make something totally different.
His comical expression, being himself, during a series of selfie just blew me away. We were hanging out at the beach for a little while before we made the long drive home. Soaking up as much summer sunshine as we possibly could. I just loved that he took the time to capture his fun-loving self, pure happiness right there.
Hope you were inspired and get to dive into your April kits and create something a little out of the box and different from your usual style. Next up, is the ever so talented, Diane Payne. Hop on over to her blog for more inspiration... xoxo!
I just realized I am not prepared for Easter this year. Have no clue as to what our plans will be but I know I need to hurry and stock up on some eggs for the girl to begin coloring so she can enjoy hunting for eggs. I love that she is still into it... it's another way for her to be creative with her hands.
This months PageMapslayout sketch was a challenge for me. All the layering of various pattern papers was different for me, but I really enjoyed the idea of piecing it all together. As seen in the images, I used a very light, subtle background for the layouts foundation and piled on the patterns that I felt gave the page a cohesive look. Mixed up the title treatment a bit but kept it simple, allowing all the colors on this page to pop. And of course, I had to throw in a bit of gold!!!
Thanks so much for taking a peek at my project. Enjoy your weekend and have a wonderful Easter :)
Wow, this months kits are extraordinary... there are all kinds of reasons to love Gossamer Blue this month, the kits were filled with so many "I Am" Simple Stories products... Swoon! April kits are yum and so inspiring. I really enjoyed documenting last years Easter pics of my little girl. All the embellishments and color palette really compliments her dress her Grammie made her, which I just adored. I couldn't help myself and just use a few products... I got a little carried away and just went with what inspired me. Adding all those elements in a cluster and backing it with the digital background file was fun!
Be sure to pick up your April kit TODAY while supplies last! You'll have a wonderful time creating pages with this years Easter and everyday images.
