I am Akansha Sahgal and I am so happy to be here again and share my Light The Path project for the month of July. But before talking about the layout let’s just talk about this month’s prompt. It is such a wonderful prompt especially when you are on your journey of emotional healing. It is so important to check up on your inner child and let it breathe and enjoy. And the wonderful and vibrant kid by Traci Reed was perfect to set the mood right.
So I started by taking a doily and added water all over it. Now it was time to grab one of my favorite supplies, water colors. I added shades of blues and purples and let them flow and turn the boring white doily into a fun colorful one. I kept that aside to dry and then splattered the same shades on my base sheet to bring them together. Once they both were dry, I pasted the doily in the center of the sheet.
Now it was time to add the photos and the embellishments. I started by adding one of my photos that was taken at a gaming parlor. I thought this was the perfect picture was this prompt. Whenever I am with my friends at a gaming parlor, I always become an excited kid who just loves playing and forget all the problems in my life. I also added a journal card that had this lovely quote on that. I added these two using a foam tape to give them some dimension and make them stand out.
I added some embellishments from the kit to complete the composition. I added everything just inside the doily so that it looks coherent. And did I tell you that balloons were just my favorite part from the kit. Now it was time to add the date in my layout and for that I used this semi circle. I added it to the bottom right corner of the sheet and to balance that I added a banner on the top left corner.
I hope you all liked this layout and would get inspiration from this. I really loved working with this kit and prompt and I hope you will love it too. I’ll see you all next month with some more fun layout.
