I was so excited about this challenge, as New Year is always a time for me to reflect upon the past year and also think about the coming year. So this layout was aptly called "Reflection".
There is hidden journaling under my photo, and is tagged "Thoughts".
Firstly, the photo was taken in my sun room, which is really the place where I sit and read, think and just "chill". This is my favourite chair and a place to be quiet and write notes in my diary, and so think it is fitting for this layout.
I used Echo Park Vintage Gardens paper, and wanted to leave the page relatively open, because of the wording and the significance of them to the theme of New Year and reflection. I also used quite a few stickers from this wonderful collection. The other materials used were Enmarc Rub Ons, wood embelishments and rhinestones and punch, Basic Grey Sweet Threads word stickers, 7 Gypsies Stickers, Upkit Butterfly brad, Fab scraps chipboard flourish and Celebr8 swirls. The flowers used are from and unknown brand, as well as the white gel border.
And here is a close- up of the bottom half embelishments.
And lastly a peek at my hidden journaling tag.
Hope we meet here again tomorrow.
Thanks for checking in.
