Oh Happy Day :)

Happy Hump Day!   I have another Fancy Pants page today...I started working with this collection and just had to make another page with it!  The colors in my photos were perfect for this line...a perfect match.  I LOVE the corrugated paper in this much fun to work with.  This page is based on Sketch #41 at My Scraps and More.  You can see the sketch HERE.  You can also play along with us to win a prize from Bella Blvd :)

I used to shy away from busy backgrounds, but once I discovered gesso, that changed.  It's a great (and easy) way to mute out some of the design so it's separated from your focal point.  Plus, it adds dimension and interest.  I just smudge it around with my finger.  I love how this page came together...this collection made it easy! I added in some blue paint, some stamps and a few pieces of washi tape.

Love the cute buttons and the cork arrows!  I inked them black.

More the little banner piece in the ephemera pack!

I hope you play along with our sketches...a new one goes up every Friday!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  3. Such a fun page, Missy!! I love how you're using the Gesso to tone down the busy patterns, and that Yellow patterned paper really makes those cute photos pop!

  4. Aborable cheery layout! It all just pops of the page with those cute photos.:)
