The one week break I had went by way too fast, but it was nice to get a chance to slow down and relax even for a little bit. This spread is quite simple as I've returned to a super busy schedule for spring classes and clinical. To make it easier for myself, I've been using Picasa to crop my photos into squares and add journaling text underneath. I like that the extra white space from the border gives me room to embellish if I want, or can be a completed card with journaling and no embellishing.
I used the monthly calendar card from Jasmine Dowling again, I love the simplicity and elegance of the plain black and white. On the right is a photo of Billy's cat George, who was super excited to greet us. The little "oh hello" speech bubble sticker is from an older shopEvalicious line.
During finals week, I made an order for some calligraphy supplies and a class on Skillshare after seeing some of Jen Kinkade's beautiful work. It's really fun to learn, but it will take a lot of practice to get better and to develop my own style. The "let's do this" card was a practice card that I included as a motivational phrase to get ready for clinicals.
My birds were quite happy to see me more often during my week off, especially Birdie who got quite a few head scratches. I added a gold foil heart sticker to the center of the photo, and added some stamping on the journaling card to the right. I used some of my favorite roller stamps as well as a little phrase from an older Studio Calico card kit.
Thanks for stopping by!
