Anyone that knows me and my husband well knows that our personalities are quite different. He is very much an extroverted, outgoing person and I am very much an introverted, quiet person. I’m very much a planner and like to be on time to everything while he is much more spontaneous and will never become a stress case over being a few minutes late. We do not question this balance of opposites- it just seems to work really well for us 99% of the time.
This was the story that I had in mind as I was putting this layout together.
I started by laying everything out on a 8.5 x 11 canvas in Photoshop. This is always my first step when I know I’ll be printing my journaling directly on my main page. I like to get a feel for where everything will sit before printing so I can be sure that my journaling placement will be where I want it to be once I start adhering things down. Once my journaling and all of the digital stamps had been printed on my white cardstock I went in with some patterned paper to add color under my black and white photos. I LOVE the contrast between the mint green and bright red!
The ampersand in the middle of the page is from the same black and white digital stamp set. I (digitally) stamped this in the bright red, printed it on cardstock, and then hand cut it after printing.
The bottom of my page felt a little colorless so I went in with some “confetti” after hole punching some patterned paper and adhered the little dots right inside the bullet point bubbles.
Simple and colorful, just how I like it! :)
