Project - Jane at Four Months
posted 02/04/13 at 04:47 PM
Journaling says: At four months you are now in size 2 diapers and eating rice cereal. You are always happy and smiling. We love you!
Note: Miraculously I'm keeping up with Jane's monthly pages! The You & Me line matches PERFECTLY with Jane's outfit in these photos! It was meant to be. Also, originally I journaled with a black pen around the curve of the top doily but it totally threw off the page. I panicked! The entire layout was finished, sans the journaling, and I didn't want to start over! So, I covered it with white out and I actually liked the look of the white border so I did it to the bottom doily as well. So serendipitous :)
How to: Die cut a large doily from scrap cardstock, place it over a cream cardstock background, spray over it with gold mist, then remove the doily mask. Cut a doily in half and adhere one at the top and the other at the bottom, off-center. Edge the doilies with white-out. Trim pennants from patterned paper, journaling spots, flashcards, sentiment die cuts, labels, and more, and adhere them in two rows across the layout. Add photos to the mix then straight stitch across the tops of the pieces to create banners. Stamp the date on two of the labels. Make a title with letter stickers. Embellish the layout with dots of gold pen, sequins, jewels, and pearls. Write on a journaling card, add a piece of jewel chain above it, trim it into a pennant, and tuck it into the banner.
