Hello Sunshine Layout by Missy Whidden

Friday, April 3, 2020

Hey friends! Missy Whidden here with a new Bloom Street layout. I’ve had my eye on these beautiful watercolor dots on Paper 20, so I tore a big chunk of it to use as the main part of my design. I love that is has all the colors, so I pulled lots of matching embellishments to go around and below my photos. I layered a torn piece of Paper 09 for another textured layer, and I love the pop of pink that adds. I adhered those papers to some smooth white cardstock. I used modeling paste over Paige’s Polka Dots Stencil to create texture and then added yellow Shimmerz.
Look at all that awesome texture! I created a cluster of embellishments under the photos with the Ephemera Die Cuts4-Page Sticker BookPuffy Vinyl Stickers, and Cardstock Stickers. I love the birds in this collection! I added adhesive foam behind several of the pieces to pop them off the page. I also created more texture by adding in tangled thread in a few places.
I fussy cut a few flowers and leaves from Paper 02 to layer around the photos. Behind my photos I used pieces of Ephemera Die Cuts and Paper 14 as layers.
I smudged white gesso on the patterned paper behind the photos to fade out some of the circles. I added blue and purple Shimmerz and then added that awesome sunshine piece and this beautiful bird from the Ephemera Die Cuts
I just love how colorful and fun this turned out! I hope it inspires you to use a big piece of a patterned paper on your next layout. This whole layout was inspired by Paper 20! It’s fun to see where one piece of paper and can take you. Thanks so much for stopping by!
