We've got a real treat for you today! We're diving into tjournaling with the fabulous Mary-Ann Maldonado. She's using the May 2023 kit to create a stunning layout that's sure to inspire your next project. So, grab your glue sticks, and let's get crafty! 🎨🖌️
Mary-Ann starts off with the rainbow paper, creating four squares that will serve as the base of our layout. She then adds some white paper, trimmed to perfection, and a splash of blue paper to the right. To give the layout some depth, she uses foam tape to lift the white and blue paper. 🌈✂️
Next, Mary-Ann adds two photos to the top corner, backing them with paper from the pocket kit. These photos are special to her, reminding us all of the importance of keeping up with people and appreciating life. 📸💖
The layout is then embellished with layered stickers, a frame, and a title in sparkly silver. Mary-Ann shares a neat trick to bend the plastic backing of the stickers to get them in the right spot. She also emphasizes the importance of coordinating the colors and shapes of the stickers to create a cohesive design. 🌟🎀
But wait, there's more! Mary-Ann adds a hidden pocket to the layout, where she places a journaling block. She decorates the pocket with stickers and a banner-shaped puffy sticker. The layout is bursting with patterns and stickers, and Mary-Ann trims the bottom to fit the pocket better. 💌🎈
