Happy new year FJ friends,
I'm happy to see you back here. Madison is such a fresh and beautiful kit to start into a great 2020. I'm sure my year will be exciting and I hope you also have some dreams coming true this year.
I have a new layout to share today. Once a time every year the universities open their doors for one night in Germany. You can visit the faculties and learn a lot of different things during the night. It's called 'Long night of science' and we love to go there. Last summer we visited the university my husband works for, he's a mineralogist, and my older daughter was fascinated to look through the microscope and see all the beautiful colored minerals.
I had the idea to use a 3D - FJ silhouette cutfile. The bow stands for beauty and is my main element of the page. I know it's very dimensional, but I love this. I created a little layering and put my photo on top of it. I used just 3 different papers, because I didn't want to have a big staple behind the bow.
I used some of the alpha stickers and combined them with a die cut. I love the mix of handwriting and this precise font. I didn't add much embellishments, just two heart puffy sticker and some black splatters.
Because of the big bow I relinquished to add a lot of different bits and pieces. I didn't want the photo to get lost. So I just created a little layering staple and added a tab with a word sticker. I rarely do layouts with such big focus points, but it was really interesting to find a way to incorporate it. I created a complete other design than usual.
The bow was great to hang some tags on it. I love the embossed tags so so much. They're light and subtile, but so beautiful. Just some more splatters with black water color and a branding strip at the right side - done. While I write this post and look at the finished page from time to time I thought I maybe add some journaling printed on vellum under the bow. Nothing big, just 2 or 3 sentences. I'll let you know if there's a change...
Have you ever made a layout with one big embellishment instead of little clusters? We're excited to see your projects with #felicityjane.
Have a great day, Anne.
