Take Me Back Layout by Missy Whidden

Saturday, January 9, 2021

 Hey friends! Missy Whidden here with a new layout featuring Paige’s Go the Scenic Route collection. I love Paper 7 with the beautiful orange map, so I wanted to use a big chunk of it on my layout. I tore it and then added another small torn strip of Paper 13. Since there are hints of pink on the map, I decided to make that my third color. I attached these papers to a sheet of textured white cardstock. I wanted to add pink watercolors on that part, so I coated the white cardstock with clear gesso. I placed my photo on the center of the torn edges and used a few pink Shimmerz sprays and a bright orange spray under and around the photo. I embellished around the photo with lots of beautiful florals.

I created the title using Paige’s Paige Font cut file. I cut it on the same papers as well as white cardstock. I used the pink spray to color the white one and then added vellum behind the open spaces to make the words more visible. I also popped them up with some adhesive foam to create dimension. I tucked in lots of flowers from the Floral Die Cuts and some I fussy cut from the 6x8 Paper Pad. I also added in three of the Charms and tangled thread in a few places.

I embellished on the other side of the photo with more floral pieces and more thread. I used pink pieces from the Ephemera Die Cuts behind the photo as layers as well as some of the already used patterned papers. I wanted to keep the map paper clean and simple, but I did add blue Shimmerz splatters and white acrylic paint splatters.

I used one of the large floral Chipboard Stickers on the left side of the photo along with more Floral Die Cuts and fussy cut pieces. I love how the pink watercolors turned out here.

I had a lot of fun making this layout and I hope it gives you some fun ideas to try! I do love making mixed media backgrounds, but sometimes the patterned papers are so gorgeous and don’t need anything added to them. This map Paper 7  is gorgeous and I wanted to showcase that. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
