I decided to create a layout with an added bonus of a memory file which allows for extra photos and hidden journaling inside. I used the soft pastel colours of the Dreamy collection to create my project.
I went the brave route and decided to use a full sized selfie photo as the cover of my memory file.
I added a few pieces from the Dreamy Ephemera pack to finish the cover.
Upon opening the album you will find this double page spread.
On the left I layered another photo on some Dreamy pattern paper.
and used one of the layered stencils to spritz some Color Shine polka dots on the water colour tag.
I created my own patterned transparency using some texture paste, Color Shine and a transparency.
I share the technique in this video here.
Underneath the transparency I added some favourite family selfie photos and a jumble of Dreamy ephemera.
On the left side I used the selfie cut file Heidi created just for the selfie series on a memory file and added some more Dreamy pieces to create the cross word effect.
To add some hidden journaling I used the photo stack from the Dreamy collection to create some layers. I had my husband, boys and a few friends write me a simple note to add to my project.
and I added my journaling as well to complete my project. It was a very rewarding process to get my thoughts down and more importantly very cathartic too.
I hope you had a chance to play along with us on IG sharing your selfies, it was a lot of fun !
