I used the Oh My Heart 6x6 Paper Pad to back some of the open spots and then adhered the entire thing to some white cardstock. I left the right side open so it would be more tone-on-tone with the white. I love how you can still see the die cut shapes in a more subtle way. I covered a lot of the area with white gesso and then used ink sprays and gelatos to add smudges of color that matched all the papers. I couldn't resist documenting this hilarious photo of my child crossing her eyes in the swing...haha!
I love mixing and matching all three of Paige's collections. I used a few of the Fancy Free Wood Veneer pieces here and then topped it off with a Take Me Away Chipboard Sticker. I combined some Oh My Heart Chipboard Stickers with some Take Me Away Thickers for my title. I love how the mixed media in the background turned out. You can still see a lot of the cardstock's texture through the gelatos.
Here's a closer look at the title. I fussy cut "sugar" from one of the papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad and used it as part of the title. Again, look at the fun texture! I love overlapping pieces like this, and paired with the mixed media background is my favorite! I also did a little machine stitching around all the hexagons with white thread.
More layering around the photo here. That's a fun Fancy Free Wood Veneer piece and a fussy cut flower from Oh My Heart. I added some tangled thread for added color and texture. I think I could fussy cut these flowers all day long....they're so pretty!
I decided to create a fussy cut flower cluster in the upper right corner. I layered some thread in there and popped up the little orange flower. I am completely in love with how this turned out!
I used one of the open hexagons to write my journaling. I used the Oh My Heart Acrylic Stamps to create the lines.
Here's one last close-up of the laser die cut paper. It really simple to use these...very easy to back the open areas with patterned paper.
I do have a process video for you...I hope you enjoy!
Thank you so much for watching and stopping by! Have a wonderful day, friends :)
