Celeste Smith inspired by Jenni Bowlin

Jenni Bowlin is simply amazing. She knows exactly when to stop putting items on her pages and underlying her techniques is a breezy simplicity that I just adore. I loved her layout (above) so much I didn't dare alter it much. 

I converted the page to 8.5x11 and used a journal card instead of the label paper Jenni used. As well, I added stars instead of butterflies. I avoided her ink treatment because I'm notorious for making a huge mess with ink and used a star punch instead. Jenni even inspired me to use my handwriting! I usually type my journaling, but in this case I think it adds personality and warmth to the page.

Pin It!
