"I loved the idea of gathering inspiration from within our magazine! There were so many choices in the spring issue, but I was drawn to this page by the talented Jennie McGarvey.
Once I had this layout in mind, I was drawn to a few things about it – the circle diecut background, the layered folders and the fact that it was a masculine page, which I rarely scrap these days as photos of my boys are scarce!
I started by diecutting the Pebble Background from my digital cut file store – JustNick and layered different Amy Tangerine papers behind each circular design, mimicing what Jennie originally did on her page. From there, I layered in some papers in the same area as Jennie did on her page and then went from there!
I also liked how Jennie added a title overtop of her photo, so I decided to go that same route too! I love how that turned out, especially since my photo had a lot of open space on it.
Supplies: Patterned Paper, Thickers, Stickers: Amy Tangerine, Pink Paislee; Chipboard: Simple Stories; Binder Clip: Heidi Swapp; Wood Veneer: Freckled Fawn; Mini Alphas: Basic Grey; Mist: Maya Road
