Happy Together / Chickaniddy Crafts

Hey there!  I'm back to share a Chickaniddy Crafts layout with you today.  Have you had a chance to create with the beautiful new Yippee collection yet?  It's full of fun Spring colors and patterns.  I knew right away this photo would be perfect with these papers.  The blues and oranges really compliment each other.

Here's how I made this fun layout:

1.  I knew I wanted to start with this beautiful wood grain paper as my background.  It's called Picnic Party.  I chose a few patterned papers and cut them into various sized strips and adhered them to the background.  I added some white gesso over them and some modeling paste through a lined stencil.  I then came in with some gelatos to give a watercolor effect.

2.  After my mixed media was dry, I adhered my photo and layers behind it.  I added machine stitching and then chose which embellishments I wanted to add in.  I used several of the enamel shapes and even fussy cut some pieces from patterned papers.

Aren't these enamel words and shapes so fun and cute?

3.  I added in some tangled thread in various parts of the layout for more interest and texture and some ink splatters.

Here's one more look at some of the fun embellishments and stitching.  I just love all of these fun colors together!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
