Wonderful XOXO Layout by Missy Whidden

Wednesday, December 8, 2021

 Hey friends! Missy Whidden here with a new layout featuring Paige’s Bungalow Lane collection. My photos inspired my color scheme so I went with lots of pinks and yellows. I started with tearing a big chunk of Paper 8 and adhered it to some thick white cardstock. I wanted to create a gradient effect on the yellow paper so I smudged a lot of white gesso on the right side. I also used part of the Floral Butterfly Cut File to add to the background. I had previously cut the butterfly on Paper 16. I just trimmed around the edges of what was left on the paper and used it as a fun background element. I embellished with lots of the Floral Die CutsEpoxy Stickers, and stickers from the 8-Page Sticker Book. I pulled out all the bits and pieces I could find that were pink or yellow. I also used a flower from the Acrylic Stamps to create a few more flowers using gold ink.

Here is the process video:

I mixed and matched flowers and hearts here as well as “Amazing” from the Foam Phrase Stickers. I popped up some of these bits with adhesive foam to create dimension and shadowing. I tucked in gold metallic thread for added texture and shine.

I created a little cluster under the photos with more of the Floral Die Cuts and stamped flowers. I mixed and matched the title with an Ephemera Die Cut and Thickers. I stitched through the "XOXO" with metallic gold thread and then journaled underneath with a gold pen. I continued with the stitching around the butterfly.

For the background, I used gold and pink Shimmerz with a brush to spread around the color and then splattered the color around. I also added white acrylic paint splatters. I love this shine! I topped off this part of the page with more tiny butterflies from the 8-Page Sticker Book and tiny flowers I fussy cut from Paper 5.

I hope this inspires you in some way today! I had a lot of fun making it and it was fun to let my photos help me choose my color palette. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
