My sweet girl is one of my favorite subjects to document. She's as sweet as sugar and capturing her current age and personality is just so much fun. It seems like she changes day to day and I'm so thankful to have these "everyday" photos and moments recorded.
I typically gravitate towards larger photos on a page, but I had a few smaller photos of my daughter sitting on my table and I decided the two of them combined would make the perfect page. Sometimes it's fun to "think outside of the box" and make what you have available work on a layout.
I used a chipboard piece and a layered embellishment from the Oh Darling collection to complete my grid. I wanted a layered look on my page in general and the pre-layered embellishments that are included in the new collections are most ideal for achieving that look!
As a continuation of the layered look, I added a piece of trimmed patterned paper and a tag under my photos and grid pieces. These simple additions give depth and dimension to my page. Because of their subtly, you may not notice them at first glance, but they are there to help draw your eye to the photos and grid.
I also added several coordinating paper layers under and around my photos for more pops of color. I alternated between a bold pattern/color and a more neutral pattern/color to keep my paper layers from being too overwhelming.
My journaling is typed onto vellum for a softer, flowing effect. I love the transparency nature of vellum and how it allows you to still see the beautiful patterned papers underneath. I included a chipboard floral piece and the "sweetheart" banner to frame my photo and accent the journaling underneath.
Since my layout is 'all girl' and completely sweet, I attached a sweet ivory bow to the right of my journaling. This beautiful bow was originally on the Oh Darling Jute Garland, but I decided to use the bow as a single element on my page. The bows easily slip right off of the jute and are a nice finishing touch to any project. To adhere it into place, I used a small pop dot right underneath the know of the bow. Easy Peasy!
