Happy Sunday everyone! Gia here with another Clique into Summer post for you. We are almost to the end of Summer School and will be wrapping up this amazing journey we have had working on autobiographical albums and pages using our I Am Gold kits featuring the fabulous Simple Stories I Am collection. My topic this week is “I Am Here” and is all about my life right here and now. Clique Kits subscribers and those of you who purchased the I AM Gold kit and workshop will find my downloadable PDF on the I Am Gold workshop page featuring some inspiration in mini album formats using journaling prompts with lots of project photos!
Today I am sharing a layout of a simple selfie of myself right now with a quote that I really identify with. The quote is by one of my favorite artists-Frida Kahlo- and I hand journaled it right on to the white space around my photo which I printed at home using my Canon Selphy.
To create my background, I thought it was appropriate to use a stamp of Frida herself and my Hero Arts ombre ink pads in pinks and oranges in a pattern with some pineapples. I used some of the skinny Freckled Fawn washi tape from the shop to create a border and some scraps from my I Am Gold kit. The Aloha in the title is a custom piece hand cut from wood veneer and the vellum hearts by Seven Paper were also from the Clique Kits store. Don’t you love those teeny puffy hearts? They are from Seven Paper and were also from the store-another add on from this month. I know that the monthly add ons and the recent July 4th Sale led to stock selling out lightning fast. But the good news is- there will be more brand new product hitting the shelves very soon! You will definitely want to stay glued to this blog and to the Clique Facebook page this week when the August Kit and add ons are revealed! August Reveal starts Wednesday July 15th!
I hope you have been sharing your layouts, minis, and albums about YOU using hashtags #IAMGOLD and #CliqueintoSummer15 so that we can find you! We will have the big wrap up post next week and YOU could be featured and win some prizes!
