Hello Clique friends!
I am so loving the May Riga Kit and who wouldn't with Pinkfresh Studio gorgeousness, rose gold puffy alphas, exclusive CK flairs ad so much more!
Today I have a fun layout for you using a lime green and black color combo!
Life is certainly not perfect and being a Virgo I stress over mess but as I get older I have learnt life will never be perfect you just need to be grateful for what you do have and as the title of my layout 'embrace the mess' (for a little while lol!) And this is the story of my layout, it is all ok and if its not today it soon will be!
I went for a 8.5x11 inch layout here and chose the white with black platters paper as my base paper. I then chose a large messy scallop cut file and cut in the striped lime green paper. I have used black thread and added machine sewing to attach the scallop borders.
I then chose the 'story' I wanted to create from the case of the blahs paper. A grid design was created from these squares. So it didn't look flat I have added dimension with my embellishments for example the couch I fussy cut from the square added on the black/green chequed sqaure with foam tape (and a little sewing for texture).
I have added black machine sewing on each square keeping with the theme of 'messy'. The rose gold puffy alphas are just beautiful and I wanted them front and centre. I added the exclusive CK flair, die cut tab and chipboard all with rose gold accents.
I went messy in my machine sewing as I thought it really was in keeping with the theme of my layout. I chose black thread again in keeping with my colour combo. Also I have foam taped some of my squares so I could embellishments underneath or to the side of the squares in my grid, this creates visual interest to your layout.
I have create a secret journal square. The squares being 2x2 inch, I cut one a 2.2x2 inch so I could create a fold over tab at the top. I cut three hearts each a little larger than the other and machine sewed them together to create a 3D heart, this being perfect to add some weight to the front on the journal tab. I then added a row of machine sewing to the top, this not only reinforces the top of the tab but matches my decorative theme of black messy machine sewing. So my little grey square paper with 3D lime green heart is where I have jotted a few notes for later years!
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope this layout has provided inspiration so you can create your own story using your May Riga Kit and remember if like me you don't like your hand writing a secret tab is a perfect way to still journal!
See you all again soon.
