Hello Lovely You Layout by Missy Whidden

Thursday, May 27, 2021

Hey friends! Missy Whidden here with a new layout featuring Paige’s Wonders collection. This layout and color scheme was inspired by the cute little rainbow from the Chipboard Stickers. It was the first item I pulled to use and I based the rest of the page around it. I used the Peony Pop-Up Die to cut five large flowers using various patterned papers from Wonders using my manual die cutting machine. I chose papers that matched the colors in the rainbow sticker. I wanted lots of background texture, so I used Paige’s Polka Dots Stencil with modeling paste over a sheet of thick, smooth white cardstock. I did coat it with clear gesso first. Once the background was dry and I had the flowers arranged, I used a mix of Distress Oxides and Shimmerz sprays to create lots of color over the paste. I wanted to create a tone-on-tone effect with the colors.

Once the color was dry, I began arranging the embellishments around the photo and flowers. I used the Chipboard Sticker rainbow, one from the Lollies that I took apart, and one that I fussy cut from Paper 24. I layered them and popped them up with adhesive foam. I used a few of the Paper Flowers in matching areas and a few hearts from the Cardstock Stickers. For the title I used the Hello Lovely stamp from the Acrylic Stamps and mixed it with one of the Epoxy Phrase Stickers. I even used a few of the tiny flower stickers from the 8-Page Sticker Book. I used the crepe paper from one of the Lollies and layered it at the bottom of the photo.

This blue is my favorite! I just love the awesome texture from the Polka Dots Stencil and that beautiful deep blue color. This blue flower was cut from Paper 6. I used a few blue pieces here including a bird from the 8-Page Sticker Book that I attached to white cardstock and cut out. I also used a bit of the Washi Tape here as well as matching thread. I added gold splatters after everything was finished to give it a bit of shine.

More tone-on-tone going on over on the right side with yellow. I cut this flower from Paper 13. I embellished with more flowers and stickers and I just love how it all turned out!

How often are you inspired by one little item from a collection? I wanted to make that little rainbow piece work, so I began with and built the rest of the page around it. It’s so interesting to see where your project can go when you create around a specific item. This was so much fun to make and I hope it inspires you in some way. Thanks so much for stopping by!
