Hearts Gallery - Jot Magazine Issue 17

Hey everyone, today I am here to share with you my layout from the 'Hearts' gallery that can be found in Issue 17 of Jot Magazine. The theme of hearts really is so broad that I had to pinpoint the direction I wanted to take for this layout first. I decided to make a feature of a heart printed patterned paper that I loved from the 'Hello Love' collection by Crate Paper, I will explain in more detail what I did in this post. 

Here is the layout I created:

I added an embellishment cluster to the top left of my photo which included multiple heart embellishments too of course. Most of these embellishments were ephemera or stickers. 

For the actual 'heart' feature on the page, I cut out extra hearts from the patterned paper. I then stitched them on top of the hearts on the page and bent them inwards to add a nice detail and feature. I really like how this turned out. I also created a small embellishment cluster to the bottom left of the page to help balance and give my page a visual triangle. 

To the right of my photo I created a large cluster of embellishments, lots of tags, ephemera and hearts layered here. Oh and that Crate Paper tassel! Aren't they gorgeous! 

There are so many layers and a lot of dimension to this page it can be sometimes hard to capture it on the camera. 

This was one of those 'just because' layouts from a recent little photo shoot my kiddies had done. I just adore each and every photo taken by Splash of Life photography - I am sure I will have more layouts featuring the photos from the same shoot soon to share.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, don't forget to check out Jot Magazine to read the latest issue!
