Hey there, Bella fans! Missy here, and I'm so excited to share a layout featuring the new Make Your Mark collection. If you're a fan of the artsy painted look, then this line is for you. My favorite paper in the whole collection is this gorgeous Magnifique floral paper. I just had to fussy cut out some of the large flower clusters and use them as a background design. You can't go wrong with pink, yellow and orange flowers!
I used a white cardstock background and just added a little bit of blue watercolor on it. I used the packaging technique without any type of gesso first. My main goal was to have lots of bright blue coming out from behind the flowers. It's a wonderful contrast color and really makes the flowers pop. I used a sweet color photo of my daughter that I thought went nicely with these colors.
To add a bit of interest, detail and texture, I machine stitched around all the flowers with matching thread. That is a great way to jazz up your layout, and you could even do this by hand if you don't have a sewing machine. I embellished around the photo with some of the black & white striped Designer Washi Tape. I also added a few Fundamentals stickers here and a few Puffy Stickers.
I used a die cut from the Paper Pieces pack for my title, and I just adore that shiny gold! Okay, I must admit that I am SO pumped about the new Puffy Hearts Stickers! I added a few here on top of my photo. They come in so many amazing colors! I also added some gold splatters.
I added my journaling down here under the photo. I love how this leaf looks with the center stitched down. That allowed me to curl up the edges for a more realistic look. I also added some green and aqua thread for an extra pop of color and texture.
I created a small cluster at the very bottom of the page. I used a strip of the floral paper, a few die cuts, heart stickers and puffy stickers. I brought down all the colors from the main area of the layout down here so the bottom of the page wouldn't be so bare. Plus all those hearts are adorable!
