Hi, hi ScrappingClearly fans, Melinda here with you today sharing my take on the gorgeous February 2017 mood board, once again designed by the very talented DT member Peg Hewitt!
Here is the board again if you have not seen it!
All about the lovey stuff, awwww! I did avoid the purple - no surprises there but I loved the softness of the pink and the yellow. The picture in the top left reminded me of Summer and I just love that beautiful burst of sunlight in the heart!
I was sent the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studios range called Free Spirit and I immediately thought it was a great match! I got to cutting up the papers and putting our first week of 2017 together for our Project Life album!
Here is the completed double page spread
Sorry about the glare, it is a bit tricky for me to photograph both sides together. But here they are separately
And here is my process in video form if you would like to watch!
I decided to use the WRMK pink embroidery floss also included in my kit to create some extra interest on 3 of the cards
This is our title card for the week
I loved how the word Summer looked in the font I chose to embroider with
And this photo is an absolute fave of mine! Love this memory - seeing the sheer joy and pleasure on my boy's face just made my day! Oh, and in case it needs clarifying, Mia is the horses name ;)
Also, on those 3 cards I brought in a little extra something using some Studio Calico gold sequins and some Ranger Flamingo Liquid Pearls (which I had never used before!) in a little cluster.
I have used my WRMK typewriter for all of the journalling and learnt that when using it, 1 layer of cardstock is just enough. If you put through 2 layers, it's a little trickier ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by today and make sure you get your take in for the gorgeous mood board challenge for this month over here in the FB group!
