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!
