Today I’m sharing another project for Ali Edwards created using the November digital kit. I love how these kits are a great addition to the story kits, as you will see I’ve paired the digital elements with physical products from past story kits, this is a great way to stretch the story kits.
To create this 6×8 double spread I modified the color of the digital brushes to compliment some of the digital elements in the kit and create a more cohesive design. The yellow used for the “full of thanks” digital brush was copied from the circle embellishment “thankful” and the color of the large digital brush on the opposite page was copied from the “family” circle embellishment. By copying the colors this helps to create a cohesive design and tie both pages together .
For the opposite page I really wanted to make a bold statement to compliment the large picture of my oldest daughter and my husband. To do so I selected a digital journaling card from which I cut out the strip border and moved to my 6×8 blank canvas, from there I changed the color of the “thankful and grateful” digital brush and resized it so it fills up the background portion. The journaling was done on a journaling sticker from Ali’s One little word kit (still available in digital). I adhered the sticker using foam dots for added dimension.
Love how this page turned out, full of impact and heartfelt love. This is the beauty of Ali’s kit, they inspire me to tell those stories that might not get documented in my everyday memory keeping.
