  1. Use the green/brown color blocked paper for the background, arranging the paper so the fern leaf is in the top left corner. Mat two vertical photos on brown crackle paper, trimming the mats to 1/4”. Use a glue stick to adhere the matted photos side by side in the upper right corner of the page.
  2. Cut a 13” strip of ivory grosgrain ribbon. Lay the ribbon across the green horizontal portion of the background paper, then wrap the ends around the edges of the paper to secure on the back. Cut out the “garden” tag. Cut a 3” piece of ivory grosgrain ribbon and fold it in half. Secure the folded end behind the top of the tag with an antique brad. Attach the tag over the right end of the horizontal ribbon strip with foam mounting tape. Cut out the wildflower artwork and attach along the ribbon strip with foam mounting tape. Add four antique brads to the ribbon strip: One on each end of the ribbon and one between each piece of artwork. Cut out the “garden” definition and use foam mounting tape to adhere it to the left side of the page, overlapping the left photo as shown.
  3. Use a black pen to journal a quote in the bottom left portion of the background paper.

A Tip From Paris: Creating perfect handwritten journaling is easy! Try computer journaling in your choice of font first, then place it under the portion of your background paper where you want the handwritten journaling. Lay the papers on a light table and simply trace the computer journaling onto your paper with a black pen for a gorgeous handwritten look.
