Aloha My Scrappy Friends!!
For a little over a month I have been doing a double page layout series on my Youtube Channel. I have never been big on doing double page spreads. Doing this series, has helped me to focus differently on my layouts. To think ahead of time instead of just go with the flow.
This week I wanted to make a layout where I could focus on journaling. With the double page spread as my canvas I knew that would be a great space to have lots of journaling.
A while ago I did a double page layout where I had a huge title, I took that as my inspiration. I loved how it looked to have a long title that was a poem quote in many different kinds of fonts. I knew that would look cool on this layout combined with lots of journaling.
Since I do lots of ancestry research I love seeing what someone looks like on paper, through documents. But it is sometimes hard to really know their true motives behind all the decisions these papers show. The places they lived, the jobs they had, these are all part of the story, but why they do things is really the true meaning behind the story. t’s these stories that I want to tell on my pages. I want my kids and grandkids to one day look back and see all the traits of the people in our family!!
That is how the idea got started for this double page spread. A spread about my grandmother and the strength she has passed down. A trait I am positive she had gotten from her mother too. That has been passed down to me. I want my kids and grandkids know that this is such a great a positive trait to be given!!
I hope you check out my Youtube Video process and see how i created this layout.
Have a great weekend!!
