So it is almost the end of September and I have created a layout for the first time today.
The color scheme and the twig of dried flowers in my project were both inspired by fall. I have showcased the recipe for "Rajma" (in Hindi) or Kidney Beans Curry which is a favorite in my family. It is very culturally significant and so I wanted to focus on the recipe. As a child I really liked it when my mother prepared rice with kidney beans curry and so the sentiments I included in the layout describe just that, those moments for me were family time, happy memories and hence, moments of delight. And I truly feel that good food which is made with love using family recipes does nourish the soul and brings people together.
I tried to give it a vintage look with many textures and materials so that there was a multi-layered effect. I have included multiple elements like buttons, diecuts, jute twine, paper flowers, wool, burlap, and dried flowers in this project.
Here are some pictures of the layout.
