Hello Simple Stories fans! Nancy here with a look at the pretty and colorful Enchanted line. I used various shapes, icons and patterns to create this grid-based design and a favorite Disneyland photo.
I started with a 4x4 photo and then built 1” squares of patterned paper to frame it out. I used the 6x6 paper pad for scaled down patterns. Some of the squares were cut diagonally and glued together to add even more color. Cutting out a large letter “T” for Princess Tiana personalizes the story and adds another shape to the grid.
A few swipes of lime watercolor paint sets the perfect spot for storytelling and adds a punch of color to the white background.
I also have some of my April and May planner pages to share. First up – looking at my creative to-do list for April. It was a busy month! I used alpha stickers, washi tape and flag stickers to add splashes of navy and aqua to the yellow text background.
Looking ahead to May I used the I AM collection to highlight the ‘Mom’ theme of the month.
I used the planner numbers to highlight some of the dates in gray. I like the bold impact of it in contrast with the very soft look of the I AM collection. I also used the notes section to practice handlettering and add a favorite quote.
