Hi friend. Spring is finally making an appearance here in the UK so the April Moodboard is a perfect starting point for a layout. The pretty images have inspired me to use brighter colours for my design.
I fell in love with this background paper in the March main kit. It is so fun and bright. I had the perfect photos which pick up on the colours and the energy of the paper.
So that my photos didn’t get ‘lost’ on a busy background, I mounted the small photos onto black cardstock. I love how they pop.
To add more depth and interest, I layered patterned papers including a paper with a black background to bring the black through the layout. Although all the patterns I chose are quite busy and striking, I think they work together so well.
I love the Pink Fresh Studio pockets in the embellishment kit. I’ve tucked one behind the photo cluster so I can add journaling and a little note.
The bottom cluster has chipboard pieces from Simple Stories, Life in Bloom (Embellishment Kit). To add drama, I die-cut the floral heart using the Hip Kit Metal die. Have you tried the Hip Kit dies? They are so sturdy and cut through your cardstock like butter!
I added chipboard frames and chipboard pieces around the photo to finish off.
