When I was a child around my daughter's age, one of my fondest memories of summer ending and autumn beginning was a renewed interest in trips to the public library. After getting home from school I spent many afternoons lounging on the couch with a good book, feeling cozy while my Mom was often sewing or cooking nearby. This photo warmed my heart because my daughter Gigi was doing just what I used to do when I was her age. While I was working on my computer at my desk, she snuggled up on the couch nearby with a book. Of course I had to snap a photo and loved the way the sunlight was glowing on her. So why am I glad to live in a world where there are Octobers? This quote says it better than I can:
"The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
In terms of my layout, I started out with some cardstock where I had been playing with some geometric shaped stamps which can be formed into letters for typography art! You may have noticed a lot of typography is trending right now. You can read my latest trending post here.
This first attempt at stamped typography was sort of a fail…let's just say I have to keep practicing. But I decided the ABC's would make a good layering element for my layout about my daughter reading.
Stamping on layouts is something that I have started doing more and more! The ink color I used is called gypsy from Close to My Heart, and it clearly matches this collection like it was made for it!
