Here is the layout I created:
And here is Missy's amazing layout:
I decided to follow the main layout design and used the one photo and vertical design of the 'xo' cut files from the Colour me Happy cut file set available in store.
I printed my photo in black and white slightly smaller than 4x6 in size and created three main clusters. For the first cluster I added a doily, some of the stickers and ephemera pieces. I also added one of Missy's go to techniques of adding some messy thread underneath a flair button.
I chose a blue/grey distress ink colour as I wanted a more soft watercolour background look. To add further detail to the 'xo' pieces I added some machine stitching. Foam tape added some extra dimension to the main 'xo' pieces to help them stand out off the page even more. I also backed the largest cut files from the page on a floral patterned paper.
I hope you have enjoyed my contribution to the Scraplift week. Thanks for stopping by!
