I made this layout about a book I read recently. The title of the book is: 'Beautiful in God's eyes' by Elizabeth George. The book is about a chapter of the Bible; Proverbs 31. For as long as I can remember I have been challenged by that part, since it always tend to make me feel inferior (in my eyes the woman described in that part seemed like a mega super woman)! Reading Elizabeth's book changed my perspective and I am so grateful for that! I added a picture of myself with a smile on my face, since I truly am happier after reading that book!
In the last few years I have started to make layouts about books that are special to me. I love reading and I think it is important to let our children and future generations know about who we are, what we believe, what we like etc. Too many times I create layouts about my children, my husband, friends, holidays, but I encourage you to create more layouts about yourself too!
Anyway ... here is a list of materials that I have used for this layout:
- Green patterned paper 'Moss' (Green at Heart collection, Basic Grey)
- Patterned paper 'Recycle' and 'Pea' (Green at Heart collection, Basic Grey)
- Coloured Chipboard Stickers (Green at Heart collection, Basic Grey)
- Die Cut shapes 'Pieces' (Green at Heart collection, Basic Grey)
- Journaling Set 'Writer's Block' (Green at Heart collection, Basic Grey)
- Corner Rounder Punch
- buttons, thread, glue, ink
Using another piece of scallop cardstock, I traced the shape on the back of the pink patterned paper.I cut it out and stuck it onto the green paper.
I decided to use one of the die cut shapes to create my title. The words 'note to self' were already printed on it, so all I had to do was add the rest in my own handwriting. I used a small sticker strip to stick from left to right. The stem and petals of the flower were made with the chipboard stickers. I used the journaling block for the additional text. This journaling block is like a
note pad and has quite a few pages.
