Moments I Love Layout by Missy Whidden

Friday, August 11, 2017

Missy Whidden's first layout using Turn the Page is STUNNING! I love the color palette that she used, pulling pinks, aquas, and yellows! Her challenge was to create a layout with an angle and the results are top notch!
Hey, friends! Missy here, and I’m super excited to share my first layout using the beautiful Turn the Page collection! I decided to use a fun cut file to create some fun angles. I found this cut file in the Just Nick store and I stretched and turned it to fit half of my page. I created a diagonal design on white cardstock and then used several papers from Turn the Page to back the open spots. I chose papers with a solid color effect as well as some with patterns. I chose two color photos of my daughter that matched the collection perfectly and embellished around them. I used both clear and white gesso on the background before adding some watercolors and gelatos in matching colors. And I used a variety of the new goodies all around the photos!
Before adding any embellishments, I machine stitched around each background square using white thread. Once I had my photos where I wanted them, I fussy cut a few butterflies from Paper 04 and combined them with some Chipboard Stickers and clear stickers from the Sticker Book. The colors are just so pretty, and I love the different textures of mixing and matching paper with chipboard.  I love the texture from the cut file, too.
Above the photo, I used a fussy cut speech bubble from Paper 21. There are some really beautiful phrases on them and this one worked perfectly. I added more stickers here from the Sticker Book, a few Puffy Stickers, and another Chipboard Sticker.
Under the photos I placed a beautiful floral die cut from the Ephemera Die Cuts as well as some tangled thread. Aren’t those tiny Puffy Sticker flowers so cute?
For my title, I combined a die cut from the Ephemera Die Cuts and some of the floral alpha stickers from the Sticker Book. I traced around the letters with a metallic gold pen to make them stand out a little more. I added another sticker and a cute butterfly before writing a few lines of journaling.
I hope you enjoyed this and gained some inspiration from this! The new Turn the Page collection is truly gorgeous and it’s not just for girl layouts - there are a lot of masculine colors and elements as well. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
