Hi there! Nathalie with you today with a fun new project using SIMPLE STORIES new BEST YEAR EVER collection. We are all living hard times at this moment, and it is hard to think of happy moments. Well, what better way to relive those lovely memories than to gather them all in one page.
Sometimes simplicity is the best way to go when working with multiple pictures. I chose a picture of each month of 2018, transform them to black and white and used Lightroom to size them all to 2"x2.75" and print them all in one single sheet of photo paper.
I cut the rainbow paper from the 6x8 paper pad and glued it to the side of the picture. This brings lots of color to the page. A large piece of heavy cardstock was then glued to the back of the picture before matting the entire picture with the b side of the JANUARY Paper. In order to bring texture to the page, i chose to hand stitch the corners of the paper to the background (Sn@p basics white dot grid paper).
There are so many cute embellishments in the Best Year Ever collection that it was hard not to over embellish the page, but i tried my best to place small clusters of stickers at the corners of the photo grid, and sprinkle some word stickers throughout the pictures.
The large "BEST YEAR EVER" from the sticker sheet was the perfect size to fit along the bottom edge of the picture collage. A bit of foam adhesive help to add dimension and make it pop. All that was left to do was type my lines of journal and add them below the title. I finished the page with a chipboard sticker at the very bottom of the page.
It is in difficult times that we always look for silver linings, and the BEST YEAR EVER collection from SIMPLE STORIES will help you relive and document all those special moments.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all!
