Weekly Layout – week thirty five

Welcome to week thirty five.

A story about how our current garden developed and grew this week. Here’s the photo.

You know sometimes when you see a photograph you jest know what colours you want to work with. I wanted to use bright, bright colours with this photo.I went with a yellow background card and a blue pre-scalloped sheet cut down in size.

A similar yellow spotty paper went in the mix too.

And a strip of pink and white gingham. I cut the edge with a border punch.

Here is the photo on the layers of paper.

Since this was a flowery type layout I picked a selection of felt toppers from Basic Grey that I have had for ages and not got round to using. I also pulled a sheet of canvas labels and matched a flower to a label. Also a few die cut shapes.

I then layered the pieces up. Some washi tape first.

And then the flower on its canvas label.

The two embellishments were added along with matching strips of paper along the top edge of the page.

Next the title. I was a little stuck for pink letters but I used this red and blue – rub ons from Anna Griffin – and then added a few dots of red about the page to match that red in the title.

And the journalling.

Sorry about the over-exposed photo! I used a white pen on the blue card for the story.

And that’s it. Another apology as I didn’t get a decent shot of the completed page including the writing.

Not a favourite I must admit. I don’t like that expanse of white on the bottom embellishment group but I tried something a bit different and do like that I have that little story told.


Weekly Layout is a series of blog posts that I am doing every week in 2012. I am walking through the process of putting the page together with a bit of background to why I picked the design and embellishments for the page. I hope to develop my style and push myself by taking on this challenge. You can see previous weeks here.
