Hi everyone and welcome back to Wednesdays Art Journal With Me! I am continuing to work in my hand made notebook and am loving this little book so much, filling it up with affirmation pages that remind me of important things. Today’s layout was created using the Felicity Jane Millie kit, which is just all the best Valentine’s Day things all wrapped into one gorgeous kit! If you’d like to see more layouts in this notebook, check out this link: Art Journal With Me. Follow along with my process here.
This layout began with base pages that were created using the AB Studio Somewhere Over the Rainbow collection. In the US you can purchase their products through Clique Kits! You can see how that notebook was made here: Handmade Notebook. My pages were a combination of pinks, reds, and greens, and I felt like the reds in the Millie kit would go lovely with this! I was inspired by the flip out tags that were included in the kit, so that became the focal point for my layout today.
On the left hand side, I decided to cover the base page with this lovely watercolor floral patterned paper, which is then also repeated on the right side. I then layered one of my favorite layered elements ever, I think! I took the little gingham tag and adhered it to the polka dot journal card, and then added a ticket and word strip, plus a stamped sentiment at the bottom. I also added a few puffy hearts, because well, you know, puffy hearts. I also used the red puffy alphabet stickers to create my title for the page, Only Love. This page is all about reminding myself to only allow things into my life that give 100% love. And that is my reminder to you as well. Only allow things into your life that help you feel love.
For my right side, I used the flip out tag for a journaling space and adhered it on top of the papers and the little scallop die cut. I added a tiny tab and a puffy heart to the tag, and then I directed the eye upwards on the page by stamping the tiny hearts. The little string lights make a cute little celebration right there on the page! Notice how I placed the smallest ones on top, creating a bit of optical depth. These lights light the path!
I hope these pages inspire you to create something today that makes you feel loved! You are loved and you are worthy of all the best in life. Thanks so much for being here and for following along today. See you again soon!
