Obviously I did a lot of mixed media work on it. I used Ashley Horton's geometric heart cut file, and I backed it with lots of the patterned papers and even a Project Life card. I tried to stay with the blues and corals color scheme to play on the Shimelle Starshine look. I used white gesso on the heart once all the spots were filled, and then I used some blue gelatos to create that pretty blue watercolor. I created a strip of photos, and I used one of the Shimelle stickers in place of a fourth photo.
I used the "dream" sticker for my title. I used some paint to color the Simple Stories XOXO wood veneer. I added a strip of the think Amy Tan washi tape here, and I fussy cut that camera from a PL card. I added some of the Shimelle floral stickers under it to give it some contrast.
To make my photos stand out against that busy background, I anchored them on some of the mint cardstock. It gives them a solid base and separates them from the background patterns. I also stitched around the border of the big heart.
Here you can see the watercolor up close. I also added dark blue tangled thread under the heart for added texture and interest.
I love this cute wood veneer paper clip! It works like a real one, and so I added it to my photo strip. I also added more of those pretty Shimelle floral stickers to my photos.
Here's the process video if you'd like to see how I struggled my way through making this! They can't all be your favorite pages...but the process should always be fun! Sometimes we forget that. I hope you enjoy watching!
Thanks for visiting me today, and have a great Thursday!
