I’m sharing a page from my family’s album about celebrating St Patrick's Day 2017. This was one of those hard days as a mum when things were a bit challenging. We had a 2-month-old baby, my husband was working away and I wasn't at my best. But I tried to make the most of it and captured the good moments for us to remember.
For this topic, it seemed obvious that I would use green on this page. But I needed to tread carefully. I don't usually go for bold colours, plus I had 5 photos to include. My first step was to find my green supplies. Here's how I search supplies by colour.
Layout: Our Lucky Day
How I did it
To balance bold green background and the busy-ness of 5 photos, I chose to keep the text and embellishments on the page simple. I used the pot of gold idea and used gold glitter in the title. I repeated the gold on the clover themed journalling card and sprinkled some sequins on the page to add some interest.
The gold and the yellow and orange chevrons on the other embellished frame add to the analagous colour scheme.
I used a glitter style with a font to create my title.
I was inspired to add a bit of green to our meals for St. Patrick's Day. I told the children a little of St. Patrick's story too. Traditional mushy peas, potatoes, and pies. We made jelly and scooped it out as a four-leaf clover. Phill even made me a clover coffee when he got back from Newman later this evening. I'm glad I made the effort on a tough day.
