May Flowers

It’s that time of year…when everyone is DONE with winter and waiting for the beauty of the spring months. Spring came early here in N.C., but we’re only just beginning. This sweet kit, inspired by warm spring days and lawn picnics and looking for bugs, is perfect for all your spring photos!

The striped paper had black stripes that I found to be a little distracting so I used the magic wand to select the aqua color. After I had the marching ants, I pressed command/c and then command/v and moved the little piece over the black stripe. I pressed command/v again and covered the other black stripe.

Yellow is one of my favorite colors and I love all the flowery papers in this kit. To give the yellow a little extra “punch,” I placed the black and white polka dot underneath it. Behind the journaling, I used the Dodge tool to lighten the yellow flowers a bit so that it’d be easier to read the text.

Using fun patterned papers (like the polka dot and yellow ones on the page above) are a great way to spruce up a solid paper background without overpowering everything. Your eye can’t help but be drawn to the fun zig zags!

Our kids spend a lot of time outside, playing in the dirt, in the woods, and on hikes as a family. It’s messy, but it’s fun! For this page, I decided that a straight edge paper felt too formal for photos of my children’s’ dirt adventures. Using an imperfect edge allowed the page to stay symmetrical and orderly, but make it not seem so clean or perfect.

I had the hardest time with this layout! I had a patterned or darker solid in the background, and it seemed “too much.” I changed it to white, and it “wasn’t enough.” And so, like Goldilocks, I found my “just right”…I added a darker color to just the edge.
