Black and White Pocket Page by Odessa

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.
