When I saw that the January mood board at Jot magazine said to think confetti and celebration, I knew this photo of my friend Carly and I throwing a bag of confetti into the air on New Year's Day would be perfect.
The mood board also said to mix in string, so thought I would string my layout components across two pieces of twine. The top row is 3 doilies I folded in half over the twine and then I placed another piece of twine below it and strung my photo and embellishments along it. I really love the added dimension the row of doilies adds.
I don't think I have a single purple item in my entire stash, so I misted some Studio Calico mistable thickers purple for my title. I filled a small glassine baggy with sequins and layered a few die cuts from Maggie Holme's Open Book ephemera pack. I added in a few pieces of seam binding and some enamel dots. I just tried to tuck items behind others wherever I could to fill up the line and make it look nice and bulky.
More die cuts and the ''you and me'' is from a 12x12 cut apart sheet from the Open Book line. I used a few small clothespins to 'hold' everything on the string
Also, pink ombré woodgrain paper? My three favourite things in a patterned paper all on one sheet. I think my head almost exploded the first time I saw it. This piece from the Open Book line is my new all time favourite piece of patterned paper. I can't even believe I used it instead of hoarding it.
I had a lot of fun with this mood board. I love seeing all the different ways everyone in the link party is interpreting the mood board.
