Today’s post shares an idea for recording conversation on your layouts. Although my son likes school, he has had some struggles with missing me as he is now full time and has less time at home with me. This page documents a series of conversations we had over the week. This page makes me feel sad because I don’t like to think about him missing me and smile because it captures him just the way he is right now and I know that this phase will pass as he grow more confident.
Design wise vertical strips in the centre of the page create two separate sections on the page to hold our words and thoughts. The different colours of text and varying size help to distinguish my son’s voice and my voice, giving emphasis to certain things he said. I used the colour orange because it is his favourite colour and the blue and black because they work well with the orange. Alpha stickers and strips of washi tape create a timeline and show the separate conversations. I used a mix of fonts and sizes to create interest. I took the photograph of the scrape on his knee as it is a part of the story for the week and I wanted a to include a photograph of him but didn’t want to distract from the words on the page.
This page is one of my favourites and I am feeling inspired to think of more stories and conversations I can capture. For more ideas head over to the Get It Scrapped blog and the article here.
