This layout was inspired by a product: a pre-made packaged garland from the My Mind's Eye/Indie Chic collection. The package is a couple years old and it's been hanging around in my supplies for long enough - I still like it so it's time to use it up!
I flipped through some photos and selected an instagram taken on one of my early morning walks because I thought the photo matched well with the colors of the garland. I then pulled out an 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of light gray cardstock, jotted down a potential title and some journaling notes on a piece of scrap paper.
I used my notes to record the journaling around the page, crossing off phrases as I transferred them to the layout.
Finally, I picked out a couple of alpha sticker sheets and decided on the larger font from Webster's Pages to use for my title.
I ended up slipping a piece of vellum under my photo to help fill in the space between it and the garland frame. Here's the finished layout:
