Amber – Week 1 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!
Welcome to a new Mid Week Mojo Series! Get ready for 10 weeks of inspiration and chances to win!
The My Mind’s Eye Collectable Notable & Memorable Collections are everything you would expect from My Mind’s Eye! The Notable collection is full of vibrant blues, greens, yellows and oranges, with fun label stickers, layered stickers and title cards to match! The Memorable collection is a much ‘Springy’ collection, with soft patterns and color combinations. It’s perfect collection to make you wish for warmer weather and blooming flowers!
Here is this week’s sketch:
I just love the vibrant colors of this collection – the mix of patterns and colors just scream ‘fun!’ to me, so I wanted to create a fun layout!
The first thing that jumped out at me in this collection was the bright orange photo frame sticker! I just love this and decided to use it highlight one of my photos. The photo inside the frame is 2.5″ x 2.5″ which fit one of my photo’s perfectly!
I wanted to use as many of the colors and patterns as I could on this layout, but didn’t want it to look too fussy. Instead of adding layers to the layout, I decided to use a more haphazard grid formation. I used the banner and stitching, along with some ‘popped’ up stickers, for more texture and interest than the basic plain grid.
I used one of the title cards for my own title, but removed the orange sunburst from around the outside. Instead I hand stitched a chevron design in a lighter color, to highlight the title but not over-power it.
I hope I have inspired you to create your own layout from this sketch!
Our lucky random winner for Jade #10 is Krista Cook! Such a great layout! I love the color combo and the gorgeous die cut heart! Such an adorable photo and memory too!
