I'm one of those people that can not instantly fall asleep at night. Thoughts fill my head and I have to wrap myself in them or I'll never get to bed. A couple of nights ago I started thinking of my daughter in my night time "solo mind convo" (I'm getting all Star Trek-y with naming this time). I started forming a letter about all the things that make her special to me. When I woke up I started working on this layout for her and it shines...just like her.
I knew this layout had to be special so I drew and watercolored these flower bunches. Love the way they turned out (Be on the look out for the tutorial coming soon).
Inspiration for this page came from the awesome Stephanie of Stephanie makes . She Challenged her readers to create a vertical band on their layout and so I did. Thought it was the perfect place to focus the photo, embellishments and letter.
The hand painted watercolored flowers and the bold black lines was inspired by this weeks "Runway Inspired Challenge #63" and this cool dress by Just Cavalli Resort 2015. I also like all the white space and the cluster of colors in one area.
This page is so meaningful to me. It's a reminder of why my baby girl is so special and how I should always praise and love her even through the rough times.
