here for more information. That link is directly to the sketch this layout was based off of, but there are links within that blog post that tell you what the Mid Week Mojo is all about as well as links to past sketches you can try out if you are so inclined.
This layout doesn't have a ton of balance. I had intended to add more of the colors in that top right strip but ended up using mostly the red with a splash of green (that enamel dot at the bottom was my measly attempt at tying green into that part of the page, haha). Even so, I'm happy with how the layout turned out and as you can see, I still haven't gotten over my fondness for navy. To be fair, I was aiming for red and couldn't find anything that I was really drawn to until I started tinkering with some papers from some past Studio Calico kits that I had. When I started working on the bottom cluster, I had no idea what color to use but the sketch called for a square-ish element near the title and as I was heading to the area where I keep a box full of my veneer that are too big for my normal containers (4 of them...all are full...yes, I need more of them) and pulled out the 4 sets of Freckled Fawn frames that I haven't yet used. I just don't know how to use frames. I usually scrap 4x6 photos which makes it hard to use a frame. While reaching for the box, which is on a counter in a drawer, I had to move some things that were in the way from a purchase that arrived in the mail a few days prior. There they were. Stacks of 3x4 cards from the Lily Bee family collection (I think it's called We R Family) and when I saw that it was navy heavy, I sat down to see what would go. When I settled upon the beautiful paper that is backing the frame, I then decided that I should mix in some of the other papers from that collection and ended up going in a different direction than originally intended...even though I was still unwilling to remove that word strip behind the photo. The blues and reds mix perfectly which helped since I only had two papers from the WRMK notable collection and wasn't in love with any of the other papers that I had sitting on my desk.
All in all, considering how much I struggled to get this layout started, I am very pleased with the outcome. Thanks so much for stopping by!
