Sharing a layout - Family truths
Here's a closeup of the title block: it's simply a couple of layered PL cards with letters, a wood veneer, and some washi tape as embellishment.
For the journaling, I wrote on two 4 X 6 PL cards that coordinated with the colors I chose. I layered on a tag and sticker by Jenni Bowlin to draw attention to the 'truth' aspect of things and to cover up some weird schmutz that had gotten on the corner of my top PL card. (Just keeping it real, folks.) I had a lot to write, so I continued my story on the bottom PL card as well.
Here's a closeup look of some embellishments I added to the photo block - a wood veneer and some ribbon on top of the washi tape strip at the edge.
And here's a look at the final layout. I like the design of the pics and embellishments; I like that the journaling is honest and true; I like the color and pattern scheme. I'm really proud of myself for telling this truth, especially since it's a current thing I'm dealing with in my life.
I hope you'll consider adding some unvarnished truth to your scrapbooks too. :)
