When my May Embellishment kit showed up I was so excited. The colours are so me. I just love pops of yellow, magenta, lavenders and minty greens. It’s my colour happy place. I had to pull it out and put it together with pictures right away. I had just got some pictures printed for my weekly pocket page album so I was ready to get busy! I pulled out some journal cards that matched the colours and the kit and got to work.
When I pulled out all the elements in the kit I knew I had to use that wood piece! It’s just so pretty! I decided to make it the focal point of the layout. I gave it a wash of white with a chalk marker and mounted it on a journal card. I had to trim it down just a bit to fit the 3×4 size but it’s perfect!
I just LOVED the little speech bubbles in the kit! They are so much fun! I love adding word stickers and embellishments to layouts for emphasis and these were pretty perfect. And those colours! I used them across the layout to create some harmony.
Another thing I used for some harmony was the washi. The mint washi with the pretty scripted days of the week is so nice! I put it on a few pictures to pull things together and get some time context in there. And because it’s cute!!!
I think of everything in the kit, my favourite was the yellow alphas. Yellow alphabets are my favourite, and these might just be my favourite yet. They’re really easy to use and position which I like – I love when you can flex an alpha sticker a little to make it fit just right. The yellow just pops! It was great for emphasizing a couple of words throughout my layout.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you got a dose of inspiration.
