Hello friends! Candace back with you today! I am excited after taking a few months off to make other fun projects to be back sharing a pocket page spread. My heart really is in documenting the weekly events and memories of our family.
For my spread this week I drew inspiration from a single card in the recent release, Between Us. This one card drove the overall design and color scheme of my spread. Here is a quick look at the whole spread, can you guess which card it is?!
If you guessed the adorable poka-dot card, you are right!
I just adore this card with the all the dots in colors from the collection lined up on little strings!
I started by opening up all the cards in Photoshop and adding my journaling. I had pictures in all the 4×6 slots so I knew I needed to cut down the dot card to 3×4 to fit into a middle pocket. I made sure to balance my colors across the spread and made sure that the photos and cards all had similar colors from the collection.
Next, for embellishing I searched through my stash for all my circles, and wood veneers. To mimic the idea of circles on a line across the spread I lined up the circle embellishments along the top and bottom of all the 4×6 cards. To add a little more detail I stapled the circles down to the photos.
After finishing with the circles I needed just a little more embellishing to complete the spread but I didn’t want to introduce any new colors so I added wood veneers. I choose 4 spots across the spread to add the wood to keep the spread balanced and keep the eye moving across the spread looking for the other wood accents.
There it is! I LOVE all the colors in this weeks spread! I love the repeated elements across the spread that keeps the eye moving.
On your next spread try using a card or embellishment to drive the colors and design of your spread & have fun! Thanks for stopping by for a little pocket page inspiration today!
