I’ve recently discovered Jot Magazine, there is some great inspiration in the magazine and on their website. I decided to create a layout using their November Mood Board – see it here.
I love the yellow and turquoise in this mood board an found this picture of me aged 11 month in Kerikeri that was a perfect match.
I used two Distress Oxides (my current favourite things!) to create the turquoise green, then cut in circles and inked the edges. I mounted some of them with foam as well as using foam on the picture. Next I painted some wooden buttons and added thread them them when they were dry.
To created the title and date I printed out the words, then laid them over the layout and created stitch holes around the edge of the title and the centre of the date. Then I stitched with the same thread as was in the buttons.
I love the colours, the feeling of water and the texture of the stitching on this layout.
