5 Photos Layout by Missy Whidden


Friday, November 3, 2017

Okay Missy Whidden. You rock. That's all I have to say. The way she included five photos on this layout is... MAGICAL! And that large title! The colors! The patterns! All of it. Every time.

Hi friends! Missy here, and this week we are featuring five photos on a layout. I printed mine pretty small and worked them into a large title design. I used the Good Vibes Only cut file from Paige’s Silhouette collection and tucked the photos under some of the letters. I used a combination of Turn the Page and Oh My Heart collections for this. To create the big cut file, I used Oh My Heart Paper 09 and Paper 18 and Turn the Page Paper 10. I loved the color mix of pink, coral, and black. I cut the file three times and paper pieced it together. I kept the pink one whole and let it peek through the other papers to create a little shadow effect. To jazz up the white background, I used coordinating colors of watercolors, ink sprays, and texture pastes using the packaging technique, a palette knife, and some splattering. I tucked my five photos inside some of the letters and embellished around them.
 
I wanted the letters to have some dimension, so I only added a little bit of glue here and there. You can see here how they curl up off the page in lots of places. I love how the photos look hiding in between the letters, but you can still read the words. I used a lot of the rose gold elements in the two collections. Here I used a sticker from the Oh My Heart Sticker Book and one of the Oh My Heart Charms. I added a bit of cord to finish it off. That mint arrow is from the Turn the Page Chipboard Stickers. I also used the word “laugh” from the Oh My Heart Chipboard Stickers.

I went through the Oh My Heart Ephemera Die Cuts and found these two floral elements that matched perfectly. The butterfly is from the Turn the Page Chipboard Stickers. It’s so cool how these two collections work so well together. I also added in even more fun texture with coordinating colors of tangled thread.

Here is another photo of the awesome dimension.  I did more mixing and matching here with more Oh My Heart Sticker Book stickers and Oh My Heart Ephemera Die Cuts coupled up with Turn the Page Puffy StickersChipboard Stickers, and Pennant Paper Clips.

I hope this gives you some fun ideas to try! It’s fun to limit your color palette like this. I only used three main colors so it forced me to go through all the embellishments and choose pieces that matched them. It takes out some of the guesswork and helps the layout come together a bit quicker. Using a large title does the same thing. Give it a try next time!  Thanks for stopping by!

It's always SO FUN for me to see how people use cut files in ways I never would have imagined! And here is proof that layouts can have more than one photo and still look AWESOME!
