Hello Wild Whisper friends! I am back this month showcasing the wonderful new Farmhouse collection. I am loving the new ephemera die cut packs and the gorgeous flairs!
To start off I have created a Travellers Notebook. Now you may be wondering what my theme has to do with this collection, well as soon as I saw the die cut phrase it inspired my TN spread, 'the fun begins where the pavement ends'. We have recently moved to a small beach/country town and one of the reasons was to give my boys a different lifestyle and move them away from the negative 'city' influences. I often look at a collection for some time before I create, this allows me to create something meaningful and not just for the sake of it. So this collection was perfect to document something very relevant.
I took the wood grain paper in the collection (05), cut it to size and then machine stitched vertically to emphasis the wood grain. It really gives it a realistic look and wonderful texture.
I then chose my journal card from the pack, and again I chose what was relevant, 'hold on to what makes you happy. If it tries to buck you off, just hold on even tighter'. I love the sentiments of this collection. I added some messy machine stitching to the top and bottom of the card and attached to the top of the page.
I cut out the farm house from one of the journal cards as I wanted the same colour blends on this page. I added some machine stitching to the bottom of the house and then with foam tape I added the 'farm sweet farm' phrase die cut.
I added my 3x4 inch photo (I love this photo of my boy and our dog walking on a farm where we now live) to a strip of the barn door paper (01), again I added machine stitching, this time as a border before attaching my photo with foam tape. I then added the wonderful die cut phrase sentiment that inspired me in the first place.
I added my typed journalling, and to finish off I added the wheat die cut. A light splattering to black colour shine to both pages and there you have it!
Next week I have a project life spread documenting a family holiday on a farm. Thank you for stopping by and I know you will love this collection no matter how you use it.
Have a wonderful week!
