Over the past week, I have experienced a lack of confidence in some of the projects I’ve been working on. I decided to pull myself out of my “self-induced rut” and make a bright bold layout, peppered with positive affirmations, as a reminder to myself that I CAN move forward and get things done.
That’s what girl bosses do!
This layout was created using the Jellybean Kit by Clique Kits (April 2017). I began this layout with a stunning painted pattern paper by Bella Blvd called “Believe”. The gold foiled brush script phrase “believe in yourself” serves as the title for this spread. I love when the work is done for me!
I created two bands of pattern paper to anchor my photo and embellishments. The yellow paper is called “Paint Me Pretty”. Under the yellow paper is a piece of black polka dot vellum paper called “Confetti” by Pretty Little Studio. The velum was used to mute the busy background paper just a bit.
Next, I created clusters of embellishments around the photo. Some of the elements on this layout are from my stash – I used most of the embellishments that came in the kit on other projects! That’s a good problem to have. 🙂
To the top right of the photo, I added a doily, a wood veneer tag that I accented with a gold foil heart that says “love”, a small pink flower die cut, and a camera puffy sticker from my stash.
To the bottom left of the photo I create a small cluster to include a yellow flare button that says “She is Crafty”, a die cut arrow, and an ampersand puffy sticker. I added two arrow puffy stickers and enamel shapes by Freckled Fawn to further accent the layout.
Lastly, I typed my journaling strips using my We-R-Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter…one of my favorite journaling techniques.
