I know I know we are already in the middle of 2013 and I am still sharing this kind of new year's layout with the highlights of 2012... But hey! this is not Project Life sooo I don't mind being a little behind. I am just working with some happy memories :)
I wanted to make a sum up layout based on the seasons of last year. As you may already know my boyfriend and I study in two different colleges separated by thousand miles away so we usually see each other during vacation or breaks. And there is only one each season.
And for that I chose the following quote: Seasons may change but I'll love you the same...
I divided the page in four parts each for one season. Then I worked with it as 4 different 6x6 pages, each focused in one season.
Winter: For me it is very easy to work with Christmas projects as each year I make a lot of Greetings cards and I already have an idea of the color schemes and patterns that I love. As embellishments I love to add snowflakes or pompons (which can act as snow) and wood veneers. And I normally prefer to play with wood colors, soft blues and red than dark greens. You can get a more dreamy image with these colors.
Spring: Flowers everywhere!! It is the blossom season, and the time to celebrate everything with a picnic :D right? The color palette is clear for me: soft, pastels and a lot of nature colors.
Fall: I chose to play with a Halloween photo and palette because it is the day of the season that I enjoy the most. Definitely orange, black and earth colors.
