Hello friends! It is Laura Whitaker here today sharing a new layout, the DT is challenged with a High 5 theme! Which translates to using 5 manufacturers on one page or documenting your 5 favourite things about summer. Weill, I love to combine manufacturers and I am trying to journal more - so I went for a double challenge on my page!
My new favorite thing is kayaking, and so I really wanted to use a photo of me in my kayak to document my favorite things of summer.
From there I wanted to make a super sunshine-y page, so I started with
this cut file that I designed - which was cut from American Crafts white
cardstock (from my stash) and backed with orange and yellow patterned
papers, from the kit.
I knew that I wanted to do a list style journal area for my 5 favs so I did a little embellishing under my photos to tie the journaling and photo together, visually.
These Imaginisce alphas are translucent and look great as a tone on tone accent, plus they are the perfect size for my "list"! My list is not in order of importance, just in order that they fit into the spaces the best.
The word 'favorites' was created using a Jillibean Soup 'soup label' that says "favorite" and piecing an "s" from a second Jillibean Soup 'soup label' onto it. They were originally a pretty green but not quite the right colour for my page, so I coloured them with a pink permanent marker and then added a glitter effect with a 'clearstar' Gelly Roller pen. It is a little hard to tell in this photo but it is so pretty and shimmery.
I finished off my page by adorning the left edge with patterned paper, brads, labels, ephemera, chipboard and stitching.
I used patterned papers from 5 manufacturers, and embellishments from 5 manufacturers, plus five journal points and that my friends is a big old High 5 triple threat!
