And here is the mood board that inspired it. I loved the colors, and I loved the "Home" elements. I put a little twist on it and instead of scrapping my actual physical home, I scrapped my metaphoric home...my fabulous hubby and daughter.
I started with a watercolor background colors in a softer tone of the ones in the mood board. Looking around our house and considering what makes our home a "home," I found myself drawn to the huge photo wall we have in our living room. The photos of my family are definitely a part of what makes our house a home. That is how the doodled picture frame idea came to be. I've seen some doodled frame on pinterest and loved the idea, but they never seemed to fit with what I was working on. This time they did! Woot woot! :)
Lots of vellum ephemera on this layout, and I added some pen doodles to alot of that as well so it would contrast against the soft watercolor. There's Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper, Basic Gray, and Heidi Swapp all mixed in there.
I also cut a couple of squares of vellum and made little pockets to fill the side frames, stuffed with sequins and hole-punched hearts in various sizes. I need a sewing machine in a bad way...I would have loved to stitch the pockets but didn't want to go through the agony of handstitching so I just hot glued them.
