Fun Day Layout by Missy Whidden

Wednesday, January 5, 2022

Hey friends! Missy Whidden here with a new layout featuring Paige’s Bungalow Lane collection. I created yet another rainbow inspired page using only one patterned paper. I punched hearts from various squares on Paper 20. I arranged the squares in uneven rows to create the bulk of the background design. I used a light gray cardstock for the base. To add some messy effects behind the squares, I used my acrylic brush to spread around some white gesso. I decided not to add lots of color since the squares added plenty of that. Instead I used a bit of Jen Hadfield Gold Glitter Spray and treated it as watercolor. I used a brush to add some of that behind my photo and a few other areas on the page. I also splattered white acrylic paint. I think the white makes such a bold yet subtle statement on the gray cardstock.

Here is the process video:

After I glued down the squares, I machine stitched through each row using gold metallic thread. I also bent up the edges of the paper to create more texture and dimension. I used the punched hearts as embellishments and I popped them off the page using adhesive foam. I added bits and pieces that matched each color section. I used pieces from the 8-Page Sticker BookFoam Phrase Stickers, and Thickers. It’s a lot of fun to embellish tone-on-tone because it helps to narrow down which pieces to use in certain sections of the page.

I did more of the same on the top part of the layout. I used various stickers that matched each section. On the orange section I used part of a Layered Sticker and I tucked in matching thread coming out from under the photo. I decided to print my photo in black & white to make it stand out against all the colors. I layered white tissue paper under it as well as adhesive foam.

I wanted to keep the title short and sweet, so I combined a sticker from the 8-Page Sticker Book with some of the green Thickers. I added just a small bit of journaling to right of the title and added the date. I wanted to add something small to the right side of the photo, so I created a small cluster of various heart stickers that were gold or yellow in color to match the gold on the background.

This was a really fun page to create and I hope it inspires you in some way! Paper 20 has a lot of different colors and patterns, but it’s still very easy to create a rainbow out of it! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
