Sunny Smiles / My Mind's Eye

It's Friday....yay!  Gotta love the start of the weekend...woo hoo!  Today I wanted to share my latest layout for My Mind's Eye.  I am in love with all four of the new releases, and I couldn't decide which one to break into first.  I finally settled on the new Hello Gorgeous line.  It's such a classic MME collection.  Lots of florals, dots, stripes...everything is just beautiful.

I began with some of the Snowbound MME Canvas Cardstock and some mixed media products.  I used some of my Shimmerz Dazzlerz texture paste and some spray inks with a floral stencil to create some flowers and splatters on the background.  I fussy cut a few large flower clusters from patterned paper to create layers under my photo.  I added in a few die cuts, stickers, chipboard and a brad to finish it all up.

I really love this cardstock.  The texture really shows when you add paint or ink to it.  And it holds moisture well for me.  This cute glitter heart is from the Journal Cards pack.  I added in some gold thread for a few extra added details.

I love how the texture paste looks here under all the layers.  These two label-type stickers are from the Sticker Sheet, and I stitched through them and added a few enamel dots.  My journaling fit under them just perfectly.

I used alphas from the Sticker Sheets for my title and added a fun chipboard button.

Here's one more close up of the detail and dimension.  I just LOVE the fabric covered brads!  They are all so pretty, and they really add a lot of fun to the layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I can't wait to dig into the other three MME collections soon!

Have a great day!
