Home & Happy Layout | Danielle Menage-JensenApr 20, 2020
I hope you’re all keeping well and trying to stay as positive as you can at the moment. It’s certainly a bumpy road and we’re all going to have good and bad days… this layout seemed to span across both and the results are… different - haha
After scrolling through Pinterest I saw a fabulous Jackson Pollock painting and it made me want to reach for the black paint. I chucked it at my white cardstock with a little bit too much gusto, but once the paint had dried, I liked the effect and it sort of spoke to how ‘out of control’ I felt.
The next day, I was feeling a bit calmer and hopeful, so started searching through my photos and embellishments for some happy pieces. This particular project needed me to mix up two kits so I opted for the yummy Grace kit and the fabulous Jeana kit. The colours just match so perfectly and I can’t always reach for Lola and Jaimee ;-)
I found a cute photo of my cat hiding under the bedding and it got me wondering about how she must feel at the moment to have a full-house every single day. I know she’s confused and a bit out of sorts, but I also know she secretly loves the extra attention and sneaks of cheese from the fridge. I wanted to capture that in a layout.
Once I had my photo, I layered it on top of some cute Grace papers. I searched through my journaling cards for some of the Jeana ones and found the fab ‘Home Sweet Home’ card. I decided to place some vellum on top and hand-stitch around the edges of the card to create a shaker pocket. I added some black and white sequins and tucked it behind my photo with a second fab Jeana card.
Once all my paper elements were glued down, I went to work adding puffy stickers, chipboard pieces and cute embellishments from Grace and Jeana to finish off the layout – that Jeana house had to be used so I had it peeking out from behind the journaling cards :-)
I hope you like the spread and thanks so much for reading guys. I’ll be back soon with another post.
Take care and stay safe and well.
