Journal Page by VICKI PUNTON

Hey Everyone,

I have another layout using the Daydream kit from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.  This time it's a journal page about my little boy starting school.  I like to keep these pages pretty simple.  It means that even if I don't have a lot of time I still manage to document the stories.  When I look back through my journal I'm not going to worry about the pages  being simple but will enjoy the memories!

I cut down the Sun Shower 12x12 paper to make my pages.  This is my book ring journal so I was able to make the pages any size.  I choose to make them 19cm x 11cm.  I kept one yellow side up and flipped the other over to the white with rainbow drops.  It felt a bit busy so I cut down the Garden Variety paper and glued it down with the blue/grey side up. 


On the opposide to the blue there are the most amazing florals.  They just beg to be fussy cut.  I cut out a few a left them to the side to add onto the page later.  The Happy Place cut apart sheet had the sweetest rainbow so I cut around that too and added it to the side of the right page.  I love seeing the blue paper peeping through from behind.


I added a strip of the rainbow drops paper behind my photo to break up the yellow and glued my photo down just off centre so I had space at the bottom to add that sweet strip with hearts on.  Foam adhesive was perfect to add those little flower clusters and give them a bit of dimension. I like that they're hanging off the edge of the pages and not taking over too much too.  Once I'd added my title I found that the alphas were a bit too white so I went around and added some faux stitching with a light yellow pen.

 I finished off adding some enamel dots and a few little details with a grey pen.  Usually I'd have used a black but the grey works much better with the pastel colours in the papers.  These papers really make it easy to create some lovely pages and save the stories!
