Hi everyone, Akansha here today! It’s the start of the new year and starting it with positivity is all that you need especially after how 2020 went. When I saw the Light The Path January 2021 kit by Neftali Zambrano, the colors and the detailing of the kit brought in all the happy vibes that I needed. All the illustrations are so pretty and can brighten up your day quickly. I decided to go with a plain white sheet as the background since the kit was filled with so many pretty colors.
I started with cutting down a 3*4 floral journal card into half lengthwise to make the strip in the center. After that I used the tag shaped element and the yellow polaroid journal card to place it in the center of the strip. I cut out the center part of the polaroid card and placed my photo in the center.
On the top left corner I decided to place the rainbow illustration and add the light the path title along with the 2021 banner. I made this collage on top to mark the beginning of the new year. I also added the January tag below the tag and the polaroid journal card. I placed everything a little above center from the bottom of the page so that I have enough space to journal below the January tag.
After this, I went ahead and made a cluster of elements on the tag. I used different elements and used foam tape for few of those to give a dimension to the cluster. I loved the element having the three girls with the text “you are beautiful, you are strong, you are healing”. Also I completed the collage with the tag that said “I am ready for”.
I completed the layout with some thoughts that I had. I wrote about where I am and how I want to grow this year. 2020 was definitely a difficult year but it also gave some of the most amazing opportunities and I wrote down about them only. I also added how I want to become even better personally and professionally in 2021.
