Most times when I start a layout, I'm inspired by something whether it's the photos, story, colours, product or technique. This layout was inspired by colours. The gorgeous colours on the Jot Magazine March 2015 Mood Board. And here's my layout:
The Story | My littlest man's first birthday, gorgeous pic of him and I wanted a layout to celebrate how happy he truly is.
How I Communicated The Story | For my journaling, I looked up a thesaurus to find other words that also meant happy and would describe my sweet baby. Of course the repeating of the word 'happy' for the title also clues you in on the story!
Technique To Share | I die cut the word happy five times from watercolour paper and then coloured each one with watercolour paint, creating the graduating colour effect.
I think I'm getting a bit more arty in my scrapping . . . but of course in a neat and controlled way! Thanks for looking!
