This layout is of my deceased dog, Connor. I created the layout as part of my grieving process.
I matted a piece of pattern paper on to black cardstock having first cut 1/4" off two sides of the pattern paper. The photos were matted on to black cardstock and layered on to pattern paper. This was then layered on to doilies. I trimmed the top off of one Project Life card and stuck that to the top of the bottom photo.
A Project Life 3"x4" card was placed in the middle to join the two doilies together. Sequins were glued to the love heart on the card. A washi tape strip was placed along the bottom and three clusters of homemade enamel dots were placed around the page. I also used mists/sprays to make splatters on the bottom left and top right of the page.
Thickers were used for the title "My Boy" as that is often what I called him and what he responded to. Finally, Creative Memories alphabet stickers were used to capture his date of birth and date of death.
The only journaling I did was to say "15 amazing years together".
