BeYOUtiful Layout by Missy Whidden

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Hey, friends! Missy Whidden here with a fun mixed media layout using lots of Paige’s products. I used Paige’s BeYOUtiful cut file, her Doily stencil, and lots of the Truly Grateful collection.  I am loving these deep rich colors.
I cut the design from Paper 21 and used Paper 10 as my background. I wanted lots of texture and color on this page so I used a few patterned papers to back the letters in the BeYOUtiful cut file. Before I glued the papers down, I added small strips of adhesive foam behind it to create dimension. Once I had my color scheme down, I began work on the background. I wanted three big texture spots on the background, so before using the Doily stencil, I smudged a lot of white gesso down. Then I placed the Doily stencil over those areas and scraped modeling paste over it using a palette knife. Once that dried, I used several Shimmerz sprays that matched the golden yellow, deep blue, and bold pink colors. I sprayed the colors right onto the paper, spritzed it with a bit of water, and used a brush to help spread the colors around.

I sorted through lots of embellishments and chose leaves from the Floral Die Cuts and I also fussy cut smaller flowers from Paper 15. Here you can see all the amazing texture and all that rich color…so good! The shadow effect from the dimension really makes this pop off the page. I added more fussy cut flowers here and then added an Epoxy Sticker along with tangled thread underneath.

I did more of the same in this area. I wanted to keep the embellishments to a minimum since the background was so textured and beautiful. I did add a matching Epoxy Sticker above the photo and I tucked in tangled thread in a few spots.

I hope this gives you some ideas to try on your next layout. It was a lot of fun to create! Have you tried Paige’s stencils yet? They make a huge impact on layouts. Give them a go! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out my process video for more details.
