Good morning! We are so in love with the project that January guest, Jamie Leija, has to share with us today…
I had a lot of fun putting together this colorful layout. It just so happened that when the Pretty Little Studio team was packaging my order, the placed this awesome star transparency on top of the white wonky gridded pattern and thus my page was born. I loved how it looked together! It had a lot of energy so I sat for a minute to figure out what story I could tell.
Energy is in abundance in our house, with a cat and a dog. So I knew I wanted to create a page about the two of them. And the first thing that anyone asks us when we tell them we have one of each is how well they get along. That ended up being the story I told.
I stitched a circle onto the transparency + patterned paper sandwich. I wanted to amp up the energy and create some movement on the page. But it’s subtle. I glued sequins on top to give it some depth and extra color. It was fun to mix up the collections too! I used Woodland, Let’s Go, and Here + There on this page.
The title was die cut using my Silhouette. The fonts I used were Arial Black and Bebas Neue. I added my journaling and just a few diet embellishments to complete the page. This is a fairly minimal page because all of the color and pattern have enough going for them already. I only wanted to enhance what was there and not overwhelm you viewers. I hope it came across that way!
I have one more project to share with you this week. Be sure to check in tomorrow for that!
