For my first page of the month, I focused on what helps me stay most authentic, my family.
I got artsy, using the stencil to make my own "patterned paper." I decided to scatter three hearts to the side. Those three people truly hold my heart. I decorated the inside with the yellow enamel shapes, making the top heart pop out with the tag and button.
I put the small yellow tag along the top as well and documented my family's name and the year. I like to note the date on most pages. I used the thicker side of the kit marker on the outside of the heart and the fine point to do the rest.
I love the sentiment tag alongside the photo. It sums up my feelings. I extended my cluster by placing a white frame along the right side and placing the 1=3 inside it. Then I told my story. There is an authentic love. It began with Steve and has grown tremendously to include my kids.
This page holds lots of meaning and heart!
