Now that my camera is set up this was going to be my first process video but unfortunately at the end I discovered I hadn't hit record like I thought I had, so sorry my next layout will have to be my first process video. I have done a walk through video instead.
Kraft+ Challenge is encouraging double layouts this month so I created a double 8x8 layout for the album I am doing for my daughter and her pregnancy journey.
As usual I started by going through my embellishments for items in the colours of the moodboard.
I selected die cuts from Kaisercraft Charlotte's Dream Collectables that the colours reminded me of watermelons and honeydew melons, white die cut butterflies I recieved in a die cut swap which I then coloured with CTMH blue and pink mini pigment inks, gorgeous apricot flowers from D-lish Scraps, honeyew melon shade of green mini paper roses from Kaisercraft.
I selected a few papers from this paper pad from Studio Calico that had melon colours in.
I chose this goreous paper as it had lovely watermelon pinks, a lovely honeydew hint of green, a small amount of rockmelon orange and I loved those yellow dots.
I selectively cut the paper so that I could have the most of the different melon colours showing without losing too much behind photos or losing too much of the Kraft paper as that is the hero of this challenge.
I also used the top strip from 2 sheets in the pad that are pink and blue and cut flags from them to use on the pages.
I love the softness of the ink on the white die cut butterflies.
Butterflies are a feature througout her album as a butterfly is in the logo for HG Awareness. I thought the ribbon was purple and blue but I wish to correct myself the Awareness logo is pink and blue.
This is a difficult layout to photograph as the photos are not great quality due to it being in a A&E with dimmed lights and a very stressful situation but I felt as Hyperemisis Gravidarum is such a significant part of her pregnancy journey documenting her A&E trips, Hospital admissions, etc was very important.
