Hi everyone, today I am excited to have Creative Team member Renae Jones on the blog! Be sure to check out her About Me page where you can learn more about her and also connect with her on social media.
Hello! How are we all? I’m pretty excited that it’s March and we’re heading into Autumn down here in Australia. It’s my favourite season. I love the mild clear days, the softer light, and the gentle breeze; perfect for taking lots of photos! Today I am working with the March digital collection called Grow Deeper Roots! Have a look!
Do you take lots of scenery shots that make you feel a particular way at the time, but when it comes to your regular pocket layouts, they end up on the cutting room floor because other photos seem more important? I do it all the time. I’ll be looking at something that makes me feel calm, or happy, for example, snap a photo which I might pop on Instagram, and then it’s destined to live on my computer and not see the light of day again. Not anymore! I decided to use a pocket page notebook, to document my favourite view photos. It’ll be an ongoing project that I work on when I’m inspired. For my first page, I’ve used the gorgeous Grow Deeper Roots collection which not only coordinates beautifully with my photo, but is rather apt given it’s a garden photo.
To create this layout I printed the striped paper 8×8 inches, then trimmed it to roughly the size of the garden portion of the photo. I then printed the label and foliage on vellum, and the other elements on card. I then fussy cut those. I stamped some of the pieces using a stamp from Felicity Jane, then journaled on the larger label. it was then just a matter of moving things around until they looked right. I use tape to attach everything except the foliage. To attach those I put a dot of tombow glue on the lower ‘branch’ and tucked it in behind the label.
I’m so pleased with how it turned out. Make sure you grab this gorgeous collection for yourselves! Until next month!
