Currently Layout

Good morning! Today I'm sharing a layout that was inspired by this acrylic word piece that came in a Studio Calico kit. I've never made a currently layout, but given that there's been a lot going on lately, and I want to remember the little details of right now. I've also been trying to use more items from my stash because nobody needs as many embellishments as I have and haven't used.

I wanted to make a 6x12 layout for this because I knew I didn't have enough currently items to make a full 12x12, and I've been wanting to make a 6x12 for a while now (Thanks again Ali Edwards). I wanted to create a haphazard grid of labels on the bottom portion of the layout and put a different currently item in each label.

I made a photo collage that fit with a few of the items on my Currently list. I decided to print it in black and white to go with my neutral colour scheme.
 I tried to keep a similar distance between the labels and decided to keep it rather neutral. I thought about adding a colourful embellishment or two, but decided on just black white and grey.
 I love the little chipboard NOW piece, and put it on foam squares to make it pop off the page. I love the variety of shape and size of labels.I love that my handwriting doesn't look the same on all of the labels, and the variety of directions of writing.

Thanks for coming by to see my spread. I hope it inspires you to create a longer Currently list. You can use items from this list, or make your own. Make a layout using the list in a way you might not normally work, or try a new technique on your page.
Have a great weekend!
