It has been FOREVER! since I have posted a process video and layout for you all. I have been so busy with life, surgery and other commitments that I have let my creativity suffer a little bit. Its hard to create when you are in bed for a week thanks to anaesthetic... Its not fun, I forgot just how much it takes it out of you.
Anyways, onto the pretty things!!
Today I am going to be sharing you my layout I created for the HND February Sketch. Every month I create these sketches and I just love working with them.
I have been obsessed with grid style layouts lately but I just never have given it a try. So this month I decided to just make myself create one. The layout is not my favourite layout, but it is still a lovely layout.. I am just so in love with all the grid layouts and colour blocking I am seeing, I will definitely be giving this another go!
The final layout is very soft, girly, and not so grid like, but it still follows the original sketch almost perfectly. I just love all the pretty little butterflies, the clusters of flowers and of course the doilies.. How could we forget the doilies. The photos are selfies you have seen of me before but I just wanted to accumulate them all on one page and just capture my favourites.
I really did struggle with the title for this one... I had no idea what I wanted to say... When the photos have been scrapped before and the moments captured its hard to find a new meaning. I turned to my tiny word stickers and puffy stickers to inspire my title. In the end I found my meaning. This layout is documenting the everyday, my Instagram account, chasing my dreams in the scrapbooking world and just being my honest self.
This blue and white striped paper, I am in love with and just knew I had to include it in this grid. That lead me to using more blue within the layout. I am not much of a blue lady, you know me, pink all the way... But this blue just ahhh its so beautiful and I am so happy I finally got to use it within my layouts. I often look from afar at everyone else's creations but this time I drove straight in.
There is no doubt that the biggest feature of this page is the butterflies. I love how even with dark black and white photos, these little light coloured butterflies stand out around the page. The little dimension they provide with just a single fold is absolutely beautiful and looks like they are flying off the page.
Hope you enjoyed this layout Lovelies. Don't forget to jump over to the HND CREATIVES group to keep up to date with all the freebies I post every month and to participate in the monthly challenges. I would love to see what you do with this months sketch.
