Hey there, friends! Missy here, and I’m sharing a new layout I created using the beautiful Wild At Heart collections. We’re focusing on Mothers this week, so I scrapped one of my favorite photos of me, my mom and my sister. I decided to fussy cut lots of those pretty butterflies from the Mariposa paper and use them as scattered embellishments around the page. I used the Double Dot paper as my background. I used some white acrylic paint to fade out a lot of the dots so my paints, photo and embellishments would pop off the page. I used some Shimmerz sprays and paste to jazz up the background before adding everything on top of it. I cut an oversized butterfly from Just Nick on my Cameo to use as a subtle background design element.
I love creating dimension, so I made sure not to glue the big butterfly down all the way. I love how the edges of the wings stand up off the page. I layered in some of the fussy cut butterflies as well as a Rubber Charm, some Accessory Stickers, a fussy cut banner piece and some Enamel Dots. Look how sparkly and glittery they are! So pretty.
I attached a butterfly here right on the edge of the photo. I only glued down the left wing so the right one would fold up. I also added in some dark pink and golden yellow thread here for added texture and color.
I love how the background work shows through the cut file here. This color scheme is so pretty, and I just love how it looks. I fussy cut that scalloped piece under the photo from the Fussy Cuts paper.
To get that deep reddish-pink color here, I first sprayed a pink Shimmerz spray and then used a red gelato over it and smudged it with my finger. I love that rich color! I added in a few more Accessory Stickers here above the photo as well.
Here’s one last close-up of the right side of the photo. I added in a circle die cut from the Ephemera pack and more fussy cut butterflies.
I hope this inspires you to document a fun Mother’s Day photo. I had so much fun making this! I do have a process video if you’d like to see how I made this.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
