Sunshine All the Time Layout by Missy Whidden

Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Hey, friends, Missy Whidden here and I’m so excited to share my first layout using the new Whimsical collection! I had a hard time choosing which papers to begin with because I have so many favorites. I decided on Paper 15 because all of those little clouds are just adorable. I wanted to use the back of Paper 15 as my background, so I pulled the cloud paper from the 12x12 Paper Pad and fussy cut a lot of them out. I cut Paige’s Clouds Background 8.5x11 cut file on white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo and used that as my base design then placed the fussy cut clouds inside all the cut out shapes.
I used white gesso on the background first and then used some matching ink sprays to add some color behind the clouds. I also diluted some white acrylic paint to add lots of white splatters. I placed the cloud cut file down and then randomly placed the fussy cut clouds over it. I added adhesive foam under each cloud to create dimension. I added matching tangled thread under a few of them for added texture and interest.

I loved how this cute photo of my daughter at the pool looked, so I placed it down below the clouds.  I embellished under it with floral & leaf stickers from the Sticker Book. I mixed and matched the title using a Sticker and some of the adorable rainbow Foam Mini Thickers. I wrote my journaling below the photo using a metallic gold pen.

Aren’t the colors in this collection just so beautiful? I love how easy it is to create a rainbow color scheme. I added a bit of white tissue paper behind my photo to create a little separation from the background and help it stand out a little more against all the pretty colors.

I hope this inspires you to create something fun and colorful with the new Whimsical collection. It’s all gorgeous! Thanks so much for stopping by!
