Hello Lovelies, Theresa here! Today I am sharing a layout I created using the June sketch as my inspiration. Have a look at the layout I made, and then I will share how I made it.
This is the June sketch. Notice how I have mirrored the sketch, as the people in my photo are walking towards the right of the layout.
My photo for this layout is from my daughter Natalie's fifth grade graduation from elementary school, so this is definitely a celebratory layout! I was inspired by the transparency in the June Horizons kit, so I layered it over white card stock. The key with transparencies is how to attach them to your layout, and in this layout I have used the We R Memory Keepers staple board.
Our sketch called for layering the photo on top of other patterned papers, so I cut several pieces from the Horizons kit. Notice how I have pulled the navy, as that is one of the colors in Natalie's dress. I also cut some of the floral die cuts from Bella Blvd. to form tags. Those colorful papers and tags provide a great contrasting background for the glitter alphabet!
I have kept my journaling very simple, only the who, what, when, and where written on a shipping tag. I also added just a few tiny puffy hearts from Pinkfresh Studio The Mix.
The sketch called for a rainbow effect coming from the photo, and of course there are many different ways to achieve that. I chose these felt flowers to cascade across the layout. They are from Freckled Fawn and I had to have them when I saw them in the shop here! They are so fun and colorful, and I used every last one.
One last little detail is the tag I added to the top right corner. This was another opportunity to attach the transparency to the page in a clever and pretty way. The word strips also make for nice journaling: Natalie and I always say I Love You More to each other so it seems very apropos to include that here!
This was definitely a fun layout to create and I have loved sharing it with you today! Thank you for joining me! Have you been using your Horizons kit this month? We would love to see, be sure to post on Instagram and tag us!
