ForeverJoy Designs

#joycreated | April 2018

Truth told- one of my favorite things about this job is seeing the designs I put on the drawing board telling your stories.  There will be many times a page catches my eye- or journaling pulls at me so strongly I have to stop- zoom in and take in the story being told- and knowing that products I’ve created help add to that story- man! That makes me smile big!

I thought it would be fun to share some layout inspiration I came across this month in the ForeverJoy gallery. And you know what’s awesome? These pages are not by members of my Creative Team- but by fans just having fun! –  who  I think you’ll agree all are great examples of storytellers sharing what’s in their hearts in 12×12 squares with their photos, words and a little joyful art!

I love the soft but bold feel of this page- and using black and white photos gave the layout a timeless look.  (it’s also a great trick to focus on the subject of your photos and get colors play well together!

The blending on this layout is just dreamy! And choosing a very lightly textured white background makes all the other colors pop!

I always love a “before and after” page- and the contrast of  B&W vs. color photo really compliments that theme.  The layering of elements and vertical cascade also give the page a terrific flow!

Gosh! the colors, the grid, the photos! All these add to such a great energy on this page and a fun retro vibe! There’s just so much to love here!

Once again, black and white wins the day- and the cropping is perfect! The use of a window pane as a grid and a center placement for the design just makes this page so graphically pleasing!

Finally- this page proves that sometimes, less is more! Once again cropping adds even more to the story than a full on subject and the black accents play beautifully with the photo and the soft colors on the rest of the page.
