Maggie Holmes Design Team : Gather

Hello again! Today I would like to share with you a layout I created using the shades of blue with a hint of brown that I scouted around in Maggie Holmes collections, Chasing Dreams + Gather. Love the fact that all her collections match with each other! With the family theme in mind, the shades of blue sure created warm and cosy feel to my layout. Well, I have to admit that blue couch in the photo truly inspired me in picking out all the blue shades! Haha. 

To begin, I picked out as many blue based patterned papers as possible. Once that is done, I tried to match them side by side to see what matches and what didn't. Then I moved on by cutting and adhering them together. I also added that gold glittered acetate to jazz it up a little. Next, I decided to 'tone down' the polkadot paper by applying gesso with the intention to allow the photo and all the little elements pop out. Once that gesso is dried, I adhered the family photo and also some stickers.

The journaling is based on the stickers that I adhered in the middle section of the layout. So yeah, they were carefully selected so they could be linked to the journaling. A story of how we built our little family with God in the centre of our relationship. We are truly blessed! 

The title gather is just perfect to represent us in the photo. I just love that!
