Orchid - Week 2 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!

Today we have a treat, a layout created by My Mind's Eye's design team member Jung. She was able to create a layout using BOTH the Hello Gorgeous AND On Trend 2 Collections for today's Mid Week Mojo!

Here is the layout:


Here is the sketch:


Jung explained in a little more detail what she did to create her layout: 


To create my layout:

  1. I printed my journaling on a piece of white cardstock, making sure to leave room for my photos.  I adhered my photos to the cardstock.
  2. I mounted the white cardstock onto a piece of floral paper from the Hello Gorgeous collection, and trimmed it to size.
  3. I then adhered the white cardstock/floral paper layer to a 12×12 navy & white striped paper from the By the Sea collection with thin foam squares, giving it a little bit of dimension.
  4. To the bottom left corner of my layout, I added a triangle cut from a piece of paper from the 6×6 On Trend 2 paper pad.
  5. To embellish my layout, I added various pieces from the Hello Gorgeous mixed bag, a label sticker from the Hello Gorgeous sticker sheets, small chipboard circles from On Trend 2, and enamel dots from both Hello Gorgeous & On Trend 2.  I also die cut out a tab, a heart, and an arrow using papers from the On Trend 2 6×6 paper pad.
  6. I also wanted to add a bit of a “handmade” element to my otherwise structured layout, so I got out a fine pen, and doodled a bit on the layout. I drew lines framing my photos and journaling, as well as the entire 12×12 layout.  I also doodled on the arrow and the yellow flower.
