Last day of school | Christin Grønnslett

Hello everyone. Christin here today to share with you two layouts with the June 2016 kits.  I was inspired by the photo in the middle and have made a little Wilna Furstenberg type background with stripes.  For the stripes I have used the two Shimmerz mists (Pink Stiletto and Mandarin Mai Tai) in the June 2016 Color Kit. To get the different color tones I mixed colors with water and with each other – just the two stripes on each side are non-diluted.

For both my layouts I have used the same design with one large photo – taken at the same type I have just focused on different things. On this first layout the journaling is about what her last days of school has been – and the fact that she was run down by another kid on a bike and had to get three stitches and have to wear a band aid during the summer. With such a big photo I was able to level the design up with smaller clusters of embellishments and lots of journaling.

I have used embellishment from Pink Paislee, Crate Paper, Jillibean Soup and of course exclusive Hip Kit pieces.  Papers from Simple Stories

On the second album I focused more in the journaling about telling the story about her first school year and I have picked a big picture and whole body shot to show how big my little 6 year has been.   The only difference in this one is that the journaling is the same way as the first and the title Be Happy is smaller.   Just turning a design can make a huge difference and I just wanted to show how.
