Happy Little Miss // 8 1/2 x 11 Layout Share11:00:00 AM
Hello everyone! I hope you're all having an amazing time in 2017 so far. Today I am sharing a very vibrant and I'd even go as far as calling it a busy layout, but I love it! I really like playing around with the 8 1/2" by 11" size lately. This one features a really precious photo of my cat. I almost wish the photo was in black and white to give the layout some stark contrast, but that's okay. Let's jump into some details.
The main focus of this layout is probably the floral background that I created. I used a light yellow acrylic paint and a Heidi Swapp silk screen. At the time of my purchase, I didn't realize that it was a silk screen, but more along the lines of a stencil. A silk screen however, still worked out just fine! In some of the spots the paint leaked out a little bit, but that's perfectly okay with me.
I did a lot of layering and clustering on this layout and I'm liking the vibes of these bright colors! I mostly used the We R Memory Keepers Flower Girl die cut set I purchased at Tuesday Morning last year. I also mixed in some Heidi Swapp tiny word stickers, Jillibean Soup hexagon stickers, Studio Calico teeny tiny heart stickers, and some Martha Stewart butterfly punch outs. The papers around my photo are from Crate Paper's Notes and Things 6 by 6 and Dear Lizzy's 5th and Frolic 6 by 6.
I rarely use colors along this color scheme, but I may have to try it a lot more often. The tiny number stickers you see there are from Teresa Collins. They are my absolute favorite tiny letter and number stickers! I also used a few pieces of the Freckled Fawn pink heart washi tape.
My title for this page is quite a mish mash of pieces that I had. The "happy" portion is from a Doodlebug Designs sticker sheet that I absolutely love. I mean, come on, that script font is so fun! I popped that portion up on foam dots to add extra pizzazz. Beneath that, I knew I wanted to add a little but more to the title. I dug through the die cuts and found this small green tag. I used that as a base for the second portion of my title which is made out of super old Making Memories alphabet stickers.
My last little cluster is in the top right hand corner. This was to help balance out the other two clusters on the page and the bottom and top halves. To make the layout feel like it wasn't running off of the page, I used a light green cardstock as a border around the edges. I hope you enjoyed this very loud layout, haha. It was really fun to experiment with these colors. Thanks so much for stopping by!
