Celebrate the Earth

It’s the time of year when I absolutely hate having to stay inside. The temperatures are amazing, the unfurling leaves are exquisite, and the hope of new life is overwheleming. I just love being outside in nature. As we prepare to celebrate Earth Day next week, this kit is to help us slow down and notice the beauty everywhere around us.

I’ve never done a layout like this before (but I was trying to find a way to use this kit!). I merged two stories and two different times of photos onto one page. In my journaling I used a break between paragraphs and then included dates for both events. Not sure how I feel about the finished product yet because it’s so different than what I normally do! But I’m strict with myself to only create layouts I’ll print and put in my kids’ scrapbooks. Plus, I would rather pay for a print that has multiple photos!

I liked the striped paper but thought it needed just a bit more. I took the all-over floral paper and placed it over the stripes. I changed the opacity to Soft Light, which gave the illusion of the flowers in the background.

I thought this layout was done when the thought occurred to me to rotate the entire thing by a little to set it off kilter. I don’t know why this pleased me, but it did so I went with it.

On this page, I worked with shapes, solids, and patterns. Notice how the circle on the right has another circle underneath it. When working on this page, I realized that the top circle didn’t really pop on the page with the patterned paper underneath it. I solved the problem, by arranging another slightly larger circle underneath, that has a contrasting color. To keep things from getting too boring, though, I off-centered the bottom circle a little.
