Jot Magazine - August Mood Board

Hey everyone

Today I am here to share my contribution for the Jot Magazine August Mood Board.

Here is the gorgeous Board:

And here is my layout: I chose to be inspired by mainly the blue tones, the stonewash look and the leaves.

Layout title:
A Lovely Day

Products used:
Papers: American Crafts White card stock, Plain vellum, Heidi Swapp 'Wanderlust' paper
Embellishments: Heidi Swapp 'Wanderlust' puffy sticker, heart die cut, clip, and flair button, doily, Crate Paper Tags, string
Other: Prima Stencil, Distress Ink, Faber Castell Whipped Spackle, Crate Paper 'Confetti' die, sewing machine, white thread, typewriter. 

I love when a layout I create has a lot of dimensional and textural elements.

The subtle look of the Prima stencil and whipped spackle coordinated with the brocade wall art in the Mood Board. 

I created a watercolour look background with a 'weathered wood' Distress Ink and the 'packaging' technique. 

It was so much fun layering all the flower pieces together to create an embellishment using the Heidi papers. 

The tags were from a Crate Paper die cut pack. I added string and bows to the top of each of them 

I cut the Confetti die leaves using both white card stock and vellum, the vellum adds a nice subtle layer to the flowers. 

The flair button was from a Wanderlust pouch and comes with the foam adhesive already. 

I teamed the journaling with some Silver Heidi Swapp alphas and the 'lovely' Heidi Swapp die cut from one of the patterned papers I'd used. 

I chose to document a photo taken the morning of the kids Baptism. It was such a beautiful day and I wanted to document the memory of the day and how lucky we were to celebrate this event with those closest to us. It really was a blessed day. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope I have inspired you to get scrapping!
