Instructions for a Good Life

Today I'm bringing you a layout I recently made that maybe be one of my top 5 favorite layouts I have ever created!

I have always loved rainbows & when I looked at this Fancy Pants Life is Beautiful collection, it just called to me to create a rainbow inspired layout.

I love a black and white photo with a rainbow layout, so they don't clash. This is a photo of my son at the top of a cliff we climbed earlier this year. I thought since it looks as though he is contemplating life, the layout should include some life advice!

Those puffy clouds were too adorable & had to accent my photo at the top of the world!

I cut out the go from some cork paper, and used my stamp ink to color it in two tones to match the patterned papers.

I sewed a border around the layout and periodically added in thread in colors that corresponded with the rainbow paper pattern.

I did two tone inks on the wood veneer as well.

{Please ignore that pesky green puffy dot sticker which appears to have migrated to the yellow portion of the page - it has since been reprimanded & relocated!}

I had so much fun creating this page, sparked by a recent Bible journaling layout I did, which you can see on my Instagram here.
