I love the rich, warm colors of the "Take a Hike" collection. They just scream nature and outdoors to me.
Growing up, my family went camping every single summer and I have so many great memories from those many trips. I haven't camped in a few decades however, and not too sure how I would cope now. But taking my kids on hikes is always a fun family outing. Living in BC we are blessed with many beautiful mountains and so many incredible places to go hiking.
These pictures are from one of our little family trips to Sun Peaks. We had a super fun time there and is was just so refreshing to get away from the hustle & business of the city.
To create the pattern on the right side of my layout I took a white piece of scrap paper and layed it down on my background patterned paper. I then penciled lines onto that scrap piece of white paper, numbering them from 1-7 and then cut them out. I then traced each piece onto different patterned papers. Cut those papers out and then adhered them to the background sheet to create a 'sunshine ray' effect.
I love dimension on my projects and so I had to include that on my layout somewhere. So I cut th e12x12 Border Title Strips - adhered one of the strips vertically on the left side of my page ("Take a hike") and then the other strip ("the Great Outdoors") I adhered horizontally using foam squares. This added a bit of depth that I was looking for.
I also added dimension when I adhered the compass sticker. I just put a bit of foam tape on the section that didn't overlap onto the title strip. This way the sticker stays the same height.
I always use my computer to journal but sometimes feel the need to do a bit of hand journaling ... so that's what I did here.
Thanks for stopping by.
