Hello lovelies! Odessa here!
I’m usually all about colour, but I’ve been loving playing with desaturation lately. Opening up this month’s Freckled Fawn Kit was a delight! All those dreamy black and white embellishments! I had a layout that I knew would go perfect with the kit so it was easy to break it out and get to work! All embellishments used on this page are from the kit – they all work so good together!
I grabbed some black and white journal cards, laid everything out and got busy sticking and gluing. i KNEW it had to include one of those wood veneer days of the week – they are just so pretty. I used a white chalk marker to colour it in and keep the black and white theme going and glued it down. Next to it I stuck one of the super cute resin camera pieces on a journal card to fancy it up along with a phrase from the vellum sticker sheet.
In the middle I had a dorky cute picture of our family hamster. I added some of the black script puffy alphas as a story title and some of the silver epoxy astronomy stickers for more cuteness. I really like using the black script puffy alphas on photos – they’re cute enough to add some fun, but they’re light and not distracting. I use them a ton. It’s a pretty bright picture, but I figured the two other photos on the layout are pretty low contrast to balance that out. I tried to leave it out but I just couldn’t.
I went simple at the bottom. I had a picture of my husband that I just added some washi and a puffy heart sticker to and a simple XO using the puffy alpha. On the journal card next to it I added some of the cute triangles as arrows and another of the vellum stickers.
On the edge I used the washi from the kit to cover up the holes – the ones on this protector didn’t match my album. I like to use that as an excuse to break out cute washi and add even more pattern and fun to a layout. It really pulls it together.
