Road Trip Layout by Odessa

Hello lovelies, Odessa here!

When I first opened the August Embellishment Kit I knew it would be perfect for documenting our summer adventures! The quotes on the Wanderlust clear stickers and journal cards were just perfect. So when I sat down to put together this page I knew that it was the perfect page to use my new Frecked Fawn kit on!

Overall the page is very blue and green. Breezy blue water tones and lush green trees. We just went camping at one of my new favourite parks in our province and I was excited to get it in my weekly album! I usually just do one spread per week, but I gave this week an extra spread because there were too many good pictures. As I usually do, I started by picking the pictures I wanted to use and then some journal cards to go with it. I love the All About Love journal cards. The coordinate perfectly with the kit! I chose one of the quote cards, a card with some journaling space and one of the doily print cards to mount an Instax photo on.

This kit is so versatile. You could go feminine and delicate with it or all wild and free. I chose the latter. I even managed to incorporate one of the Vintage Doily Acetate Diecuts – I taped a green one down over the quote. I used the woodgrain washi a lot on this layout to tape pictures, embellishing and journaling down. I really wanted to use one of the clear quote stickers over a photograph but the picture was too dark. I remedied this by sticking the quote to some vellum and then cutting it out and taping it down to the photo so it would be legible. I also used one of the fabulous To Do clips on a photo to highlight some journaling.

I used another quote sticker on my final picture because it was just perfect sitting on the horizon line. I added one of the metal embellishments from the kit underneath it and journaled about the photo on one of the journal cards. In addition to the kit items I used some White Puffy Script Alphas and a chipboard piece from the June Summertime Chipboard Phrases that helped finish off the layout. Sticking to a soft blue/green colour palette really helped maintain what a beautiful and peaceful trip we had!

Have a lovely day!
