Hello Pebbles Fans!
Terhi Koskinen here to inspire you with the collection that made me fall in love with Pebbles when it first was released.
Drom roll please… It’s Heart of Home by Jen Hadfield!
Last week I had a pleasure visiting Jen’s blog with a mini book I made as a housewarming gift (link). As I had all of those beautiful paper laying in front of me on the table I just couldn’t stop myself from creating another project with the gorgeous products.
This week here at Pebbles blog we are featuring a theme “A Day in Life”. The Day in Life could be anything, but I chose to highlight a day would happily live another time as there was simply nothing I’d change: Day with my family on a beach.
To create the layout I wanted to use the fussy cut leaves and flowers I already had left over from making the mini book, and I also wanted to use watercolors because July is World Watercolor Month. Usually when I’m scrapbooking the photos I’m using are leading the way I design the layout, but this time was an exception as there was these special products in my mind.
To feature the delicate leaves the design had to be just as delicate as they are, and it also meant the watercolors couldn’t be stealing too much attention from the white background.
To add even more tender elements to the page, the photos I chose to use were very small.
All I figured was to create a small grid and frame the squares with hand stitching so I could add something soft to the mix to balance it all a bit.
After all, it ended up just the way I wanted! Once again my journaling is hidden in the backside of the layout, and even the title is very small so the flowers, photos and the grid are more visible.
Hope this gives you inspiration to create something beautiful today!
