Hey lovelies, I am back again today with another lovely layout using the beautiful Felicity Jane, Maggie Kit! I am counting down the days till my Felicity Kit arrives.
For now, I will just share with you some pretties I have created. Todays layout I decided to use the lovely Sketch Saturday sketch that featured on the Felicity Jane blog a few weeks ago. The link is here and the sketch is just divine. It is so pretty and simple and emulates one of the patterned papers in the kit perfectly!!
I just love how bright and clean this layout is. The triangles are something I haven't ever really done before and to be honest, probably wont again. Those triangles were so much trouble to get correct. I still didn't even measure properly, but oh well. It worked in the end I suppose.
The layout today is about HOME. Not the physical sense of the word but the emotional sense. I have had to do a lot of thinking lately. My parents are getting older, as I am getting older. We grew up on a 16 acre farm and as they get older, I feel the farm is going to be harder and harder to maintain. What is going to happen to our family home when they are gone? This may seem a bit morbid and unthinkable, but you have to think about these things.
I came to the realisation that home IS in fact where the heart is. Home isn't a physical place, yeah sure they are the memories and the environment that shaped you into the person you are today, but its the people you were surrounded by that really are your home. Where ever my parents are, that is my home and I have to be OK with that.
Ok enough of the touchy feelies, back to the layout. Once again I used one of my most favourite flair buttons on this layout as one of the circles that are featured in the sketch. I may have added a few more circles than the sketch but you still get the general feel for the sketch in this layout.
I feel with every layout, my layering and clustering are really starting to get "there" where ever "there" is. It is just becoming such an effortless task and I find it just all comes together better. I am loving the layers behind this photo. It touches on the blue, the black and white, but still has a little feminine touch that I always love.
Ok girls, thats it for today. Have a lovely day and I will be back tomorrow with another video.
Love you all,
