White ... With 1 July Reveal

Hey Crafty Friends,

Thanks for stopping by today for the July reveal for White ... With 1.

Officially the second half of the year. How did that go so fast?!!! 

Here is my layout for the month of July 2018:

The colour is Air Bubble:

July has this gorgeous mood board:

The yarn on the mood board was my inspiration. I knew I wanted to use the tiny knitted baby outfit, so chose a baby photo to match and then other baby themed ephemera pieces. I created the layout in a grid design, spreading the blue and white elements around, and finishing it off with little clusters of enamel dots and diamantes.

As you can see, I didn't have the correct alphas to spell out his name, so I had to cut some and make my own. It's noticeable when looking this closely but it's not out-of-place-noticeable. I got my desired end result anyway!

The photo is matted on white card stock and blue tissue paper, and simply adorned with a blue sticker saying "You are Gorgeous". I cut the "New Arrival" journaling spot from a 3x4 card (I think) that wasn't blue, and matted it on blue patterned paper to make it stand out a little more. I didn't need to journal on it, so I added this little crochet doily on top.

A few random ephemera pieces, blue dandelion flower rub-ons and clusters of enamel dots and shiny things finish it off. They help to fill awkward gaps and to add in more colour in subtle ways, while keeping the page light and fresh for the new baby theme.

Such a gorgeous colour that suits so many different types of layouts. Have a go! Head on over to White ... With 1 to check out the rules and to link up your entry (please include your name and country when linking it up, and please link to your challenge post not to your entire blog).

See you again next week,
Jessica T
