It's Monday and that means it's Meridy here, thanks for stopping by! I want to share another layout I made with the "She's So Crafty" Classic Kit. There were lots of vibrant colors in this month's kit and some really cool patterned papers, I decided to use this "color wheel" type of paper for a layout about my baby's first box of colors.
As soon as I pulled this paper to work with, I knew I wanted to use the circle shape as a major design element for the layout. First, I matted and placed my photos on the bottom right of the paper, then I fussy cut a couple of the paint swatches from another paper. Next, I punched a bunch of 2 different size hexagons and sprinkled them around the circle to fill in the blank spaces.
Finally, I got the puffy stickers out and sprinkled them around as well. I decided to add a small cluster of these embellishments in some of the "white space" on the photos as well, to visually bring the circle around.
I decided the layout looked a little bare, so I added some of the acrylic words to read "Little You", and the "I Love" flair button. But the layout still looked a little disconnected. So I decided to hand stitch in white embroidery floss around where the white circle I covered up on the patterned background was. This finished the embellishments off.
Last, it was time to add my title & journaling, again along the arch of the circle. And with that, the layout was finally complete.
Thank you for stopping by today! I would love to see how you used this piece of patterend paper from the kit this month. Share your layouts on our Noel Mignon Members Facebook page or on Instagram #NoelMignon. Have a great day!!!
