Happy Wednesday Lily Bee friends! It's Jenni here today to share a layout and a few tips in lettering and grids.
When making this layout, I knew I wanted to include Lily Bee's fabulous ABC stickers in the title of the page. Knowing that I wanted the words to align on the right side of the page, I needed a game plan for proper spacing of the ABC stickers.
In order to accomplish this, I first wrote out the phrase "I never dreamed it could get better than this" on a piece of paper (I don't know about you but my brain can't spell words backwards very well!). I then started with the last letter and the last word and worked backwards. I decided to stagger the phrase and include a tag in the white space for journaling.
When I orginally created this grid it was just the bottom layer of circles (from a 1 1/2" circle punch) from various papers from the Memorandum and Head over Heels 6x6 Tiny Tablets. I felt that it looked a little plain and needed something extra. Whenever this happens I usually tend to add more layers for dimension and interest. So I added a second layer of circle punches and used a pop dot to adhere the circles.
I still felt like the grid needed something else, so I added little embellishments to each circle. I spaced each series of embellishments so that it was in groups of three, and creating a triangle. For instance the hearts create a triangle, as do the butterflies, buttons, and word sentiments.
Thanks for swinging by today!
