Playing with Pastels with Daniela

Our special sets of journaling tags, like the Pastel Labeled Journaling Tags are perfect for coordinating with the April 2019 Kit, and using when you need to add more words to your project, but they can also be used for so much more! Today, Daniela is with us to share how she used them to create spots for photos, embellishment AND her story! Let’s take a look:

Hi everybody, it’s Daniela here and I have another layout to share with you guys. This time I wanted to use the Pastel Labeled Journaling Tags. I try to have a little bit of journaling on every layout. Personally, I prefer handwritten texts on my pages because I feel that my own handwriting adds another personal touch to the project. Of course, handwriting and journaling tags go together perfectly, so I created a page with these tags front and center!

I used three of the tags for this page and created different elements in a line. The first tag holds my picture, the second is embellished with the beautiful butterfly I fussy-cut from one of the tags included in the April 2019 Kit and the third is my journaling spot. I added only a few embellishments under these three elements which underline the tags.

There are also some embellishments on the tags—some stickers here and there and a background paper behind the tag in the center. I also created a soft circle behind the butterfly element in the middle. 

The teal colored butterfly builds the center of my page and this color combination occurs over and over again. I placed two paper stripes on each side of the white cardstock cardstock and used a big puffy sticker and number stickers in this color as well.

I’m curious to see what you create with the Pastel Labeled Journaling Tags! Don’t forget to share your creations and tag #EllesStudio on social media.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
