I kept to the same products as the previous pages, with more watercolour elements to help tie things
I combined a die-cut word with some simple journal strips to begin the page, and often use landscape photos as a backdrop for my journaling. I added a section from one of the watercolour cards I created in my first post to create a fun filler card - using the stitched accent to visually ground the two sides together.
Bringing home a little bit of the beach with us, I used my fuse tool to enclose some beach sand into one of the pockets - adding a few hearts from the Pink Paislee Moonstruck 'No:6' Paper on the outside of the page protector.
Printing some of the pics smaller than the pocket allowed me to add colour with a patterned paper background as well as some dimension with the fun Hazelwood Chipboard phrases.
Using the reverse side of the insert to document a different location - I created a couple of split cards that combined different patterned papers for an easy way of adding more colour.
I used a frame from the Maggie Holmes Gather 'Moments' Paper and a chipboard accent from the Hazelwood Chipboard Thickers as a place to ground my journaling over another landscape photo. You can also see the reverse side of my sand pocket here and how I added another heart to hide the adhesive from the other side.
I created another split card as a background for a smaller photo and used more watercolour hearts from the Pink Paislee Moonstruck 'No:6' Paper to add more interest to the page.

Hi again, Agnus here with another share from my project life album.
I am still using the same items I used for my first January post, but by changing the focus from the teal accent colour to the vivid blue from the b-side of the Gather 'Moments' Paper, I was able give the same products a slightly different look.
Using one of the cards I created from my watercolour resist post, I used more paint to colour half of gold foiled accent piece before adding a simple date strip to mark the start of a new week.
I normally print my journaling directly onto my cards, but regular printer recently stopped working so I am going with printed journal strips and like the way they help to tie all of my pockets together.
I cut out a few frames from the Gather 'Moments' Paper to use as a place to ground the journaling onto the page.
We spent a couple of nights at the coast to celebrate my son's birthday and while I will be using an insert to document the adventure, I used the second half of my spread to document some of the details that might have otherwise gone unrecorded.
I am making an effort to collect memorabilia when we are out and about this year, and used the napkin from one of the restaurants we ate at to create a custom filler card.
Creating a simple vellum pocket to hold a few business cards - I did this by wrapping the vellum around my card and using tape to secure it to the back of the card.
I love the impact the Hazelwood Chipboard Thickers make directly onto photos.
Using watercolours to help make my journal strips more visible against the black and white background of my patterned paper.
