Documenting Bravery with Jess Forster

The Brave and Kind Acrylic pieces from our February release are the perfect size to use for a title, or as Jess Forster is showing us today, a beautiful story-starter. Let’s take a look at what she created, inspired by this new product!
Hands up if you’re a fan of embellishments? To me, embellishments are the perfect way to make a pocket page pop! When I saw the Brave Acrylic as part of Elle’s Studio February release, I was inspired to document the everyday bravery my daughter has shown over the last three years.

In my 6″ x 8″ pocket page spread, I wanted to highlight the Brave Acrylic and use it in my title. Although I could have recoloured the word using an oil based medium, I opted to keep it white and simply adhere it with some permanent adhesive to bottom of my full sized, 6″ x 8″ photo. The clean, white acrylic popped against the dark, negative space in my photo.

With the large “brave” word as my title, I also wanted to centre my journaling around this theme. Using a purple 4″ x 6″ tag from the January 2018 Kit, I wrote my thoughts and feelings on how Rowan faced her fears in order to develop her motor coordination as well as her flexibility in her willingness to try something new. This letter style journaling is straight from my heart and so meaningful to me. Not only was the Brave Acrylic a perfect title, it was also was a great story starter for my journaling.

Overall, I am so happy that I have another layout to add to my daughter’s album that reflects on how she has grown and developed. I hope this page inspires you to document a brave moment, period of time or activity in your life or about someone you love.
Thanks for looking!
