This is the Life Layout by Missy Whidden


Tuesday, September 4, 2018

Hey, friends Missy here! I’ve been wanting to use Paige’s Butterfly Border cut file for some time now, and I finally did for this page. I wanted to create a shadow effect with it, so I first cut it on white cardstock and then on Oh My Heart Paper 14 which is a beautiful pink ombre. I offset the pink paper under the white to give it a pretty pink shadow. I wanted to incorporate lots of black and white so I used Oh My Heart Paper 07 for the top half of the layout. I traced and cut around the top edge of the cut file to fit the shapes. I smudged a lot of white gesso down on the black and white paper to soften the lines and then used my three favorite colors of Distress Oxides to create lots of messy color.
I scraped the ink pads right onto the paper and then spritzed with some water. I used a brush to spread some of the color around below the butterflies and behind them. I decided later on in the process to add color above the butterflies as well. I sorted through lots of embellishments in coordinating colors and used several stickers from the 30-page Paige Evans #StickerBook and some fussy cut flowers from the Oh My Heart 12x12 Paper Pad.

I found lots of matching goodies to use here including Oh My Heart Puffy Stickers, Pick-Me-Up Puffy Stickers, and even some fun circles from Fancy Free Paper 03. I always find pieces to use from Paige’s 30-page #StickerBook. There are a few bits of Oh My Heart Chipboard Stickers and Pick-Me-Up Chipboard Stickers. And for fun I added in some matching colors of tangled thread.

I combined some #StickerBook alphas with some Oh My Heart Puffy Stickers to create my title. Since the letters were yellow on top of yellow ink, I traced around them with a black pen to make them stand out. I also added some black splatters and stamped some cute lined hearts using the Turn the Page Layerable Stamp Set.

I always have so much fun mixing and matching Paige’s collections! I hope this inspires you to do the same on your next page. Thanks for stopping by!
