The paper from Authentique motivated me to create a page about my son. The colors and textures were masculine. When I heard that the kit was about honesty, the first person I thought of was my son. He is so honest. As in he can't lie. Even when he tries, he comes back at a later time to tell the truth. It is just within him.
I decided to put everything in the center on this page. I think his honesty and virtue should be rewarded so I used the orange pocket right next to his photo. It conveys how I feel about Nathan. I really wanted to ground the photo so I used the wood veneer, bright blue paper, circle and the large label.
To make the He title pop, I adhered the letters to a darker sheet of paper. Then I freely cut around the edges. It totally worked.
Because the background was so textured, I knew I couldn't journal on the paper. So I decided to include some hidden journaling.
I love this page about my son and I hope he feels proud when he reads it later in life!
