This month’s Elle’s Studio kit offers a reminder of the many things in this world that go together perfectly — like X’s and O’s, donuts and coffee, and words and tags!
I created this layout of my favorite pair — my two dogs — prompted by the “We Go Together” tag from the January kit. The journaling begins with a list of commonly known complementary pairs, and moves into canine-related complementary pairs. From there, I reflected on the symbiotic relationship between my pups and how the two of them make our household whole.
Because the photo was taken in full sunlight during the late afternoon, the colors are kind of one-note, with the exception of two pink tongues. That bit of pink, paired with the pink donut in the “We Go Together” journaling card, inspired the color scheme of this page.
I layered two sheets of Elle’s Studio patterned paper over a piece of kraft (that is, fur-colored) cardstock, choosing a mix of pink polka dots and a pink grid pattern. To unite the two sides, I layered tags in the space between.
The final touch was the addition of a stamped donut garland, created using the January exclusive stamp.
I worked in aqua “frosting” here and there, which sets off the pink even more.
In so many ways, this layout is all about pairs that go together happily, like my scrappy little heart and Elle’s Studio.
