Jot Magazine: My Favorite Boys

Today I thought I would share another layout from Issue 6 of Jot Magazine!  Kim is working hard on Issue 7 right now, which will be out the beginning of September!  I know it will be amazing!

This layout using products from Heidi Swapps' awesome collections.  This page started with those beautiful acrylic stars.  I knew I wanted to scatter them around my page, so I just randomly laid them here and there.  I punched a few stars from vellum and then layered them over some of the brighter blues to soften the page a little.

Next, I added a few paper layers, my photo and some embellishments.  I didn't really know where to include my journaling since my page was busy as it was, so I added it in the white space of my photo.

The stars give the perfect amount of texture and dimension!!  I love pages like this because something so simple (the stars) can make your layout just pop!!
