I am Akansha Sahgal and I am back with another layout inspiration for this month. Ah!! The prompt for this month is so close to my heart as it is all about honoring our emotions. People often tend to forget this that whether you are happy or sad, you should always respect your emotions and give yourself the time to understand them. I feel that the time when you start accepting your emotions especially the sad and bad ones, you become a better person and the journey of healing becomes easier.
I always wanted to create a grid layout and just felt that this is the perfect time to do so. I resized my journal cards and photos according to the size of my sheet so that I can make a 3*3 layout. This time I decided to use those three photos wherein I was going through some tough times but I gave my emotions the time to heal. I felt these photos were perfect for this month. I printed out 3 each of photos, journal cards with writing space and journal cards with quotes. I arranged them in the best format and pasted them.
I really liked all the journal cards with quotes from this wonderful kit by Neftali. But for this particular layout, I printed the three that had complimenting colors in them. Then I went ahead and cut out some of the ephemera and added it to the layout using foam tape. Also I cut out the heart strip into smaller pieces and used them as washi tapes for the photos in the top and bottom row.
If you are someone who’s reading my blog posts for Light The Path, by now you must be knowing that I love to add date to my layouts. And it was no different this time as well and for this I cut out a small strip from the washi tape illustrations. I added that strip on the center photo. In the end I went ahead and wrote down my thoughts as well as some reminders to stay strong in times of such situations in the future. I hope you will also let your emotions breathe and give them time to heal. Will see you all soon with some more inspiration.
