|Created with a mix of the Main kit, Mini Album kit|
and Antiquarian kit.
To create this layout, I painted the front cover of the chipboard mini album with Silks Acrylic Glaze.
I have challenged myself to include more purple in my pages this year due to Pantone's choice of Radiant Orchid. I had some mist which I had made using the Lavendar Sachet re-inker. I sprinkled it in a few spots for a subtle orchid like color.

This was a warm up page for me. Sometimes, I need to get my creative thoughts jumpstarted.I am not necessarily trying to create the perfect layout. I just want to play with the supplies, knowing that once I start thinking creatively, other ideas will start flowing. I started off with the music sheet as my inspiration and went in search of photos which would work well with it. I knew these photos of my son would be perfect.
Back in the days when we had a stereo system, he would climb up on his dad's desk( while under supervision), turn on the music and begin to dance. He was so full of carefree self expression without worrying what others thought of him. I chose to use the thought bubble print to voice that. Hot pink bits of paper added a little more energy to the page.

with wood buttons from the Janaury kits
and this month's dime store deal.
I have been talking recently with friends about the placement of product in the design process. I know some people have a set starting place. Mine varies. Sometimes it's the photos. Sometimes it's a challenge or prompt. Other times, as in the case with this month's JBS Mercantile kits, it is inspired by the products. I am curious to see whether the March kits will be my source of inspiration or whether I choose to start with photos and work the products from the March kits around the story. I guess you will have to check in with me around the first of the month to see.
