Project - winter theme: simplify



I love this so much, Lexi!

those trees are adorable, and the neutral color palette is perfect!

couldn't agree more with your sentiment :) awesome page.

It's been forever since I've seen an 8.5 x 11 landscape layout. I love what you've done with it!

I've never been one to pick a word or theme for the coming year, but as I think about 2014 this word, simplify, keeps coming to mind.

I found this blurry image of a tree with snow falling on pinterest and clicked through every link to find a source, but couldn't. I printed it out, imperfectly, in grid fashion. It reminds me of stillness, quiet, peace and simplicity. All of which I want more of in the new year. It also went along with the winter theme, so that was perfect.

I use to love making 8.5 x 11 landscape layouts and for whatever reason, stopped. I decided to start again and loved how this tuned out.

I stayed neutral with the colors, which made me think of the freshness of winter. The polka dot paper reminded me of big snowflakes. The trees were cut from a die cut file in the shop last month. I just modified it a bit by taking out the chevron lines.

A winter themed layout is the perfect place for silver glitter and vellum. A small snowflake piece of vellum (I have used every bit of that paper) is tucked under the photo and a strip of unevenly cut silver glitter paper runs along the top. Glittered ribbon would also work well here.

I layered a few tags for typed journaling. I punched out a silver glitter circle for the digital tag. I am crazy about stars, so I used a sprinkling of them (metal from basic grey & rub ons from chic tags) around the edges.

The only pop of color comes from a vintage theatre ticket barely peeking out and a red metal button I have been hoarding, I mean saving. I loved the bits of silver and gold on the layout and decided to throw on some messy gold thread.

Thanks for looking!
