Mixed Media Monday: Family journalling

Yes I have indeed started another journal, although this was one I bought which has really narrow notebooks in it. I chose the one with blank pages to start on (there are lined and grid page notebooks too) and decided to make it into a journal for adding pages about family members… and started with the youngest member of the family… my youngest great nephew, Hugo, born November 2020.

I have yet to meet him (or indeed my youngest niece who is 2) so I am reliant on photos I am sent or see on Facebook etc.

Decided to mainly use the soft green cloud paper I had cut into for another project and other papers on the desk along with the cute journalling card which I created into a flip so I could put some journalling behind it.

The Welcome sign was cut from some packaging I had on the desk and the heart stencilled piece was a Gelli print I made earlier in the day for another project but decided not to use … decided it was perfect for adding to this page, along with the wipe off from my brayer.

I stamped Hugo using some large alpha stamps from Paperartsy and love how that came out.

On the circles I punched and added, I also punched and added hearts and then used glossy accents to make them into dimensional embellishments and went to town with doodled lines etc.

Quite a quick page to put together and good that most of it was using up stash off the desk so required no new items or papers and pleased I could add in a bit of mixed media too with the Gelli print etc.

Happy crafting!
