Here's a closer look at this layout and cut files:
I cut the heart in black and white cardstock to make it shadowed and more prominent against the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes patterned paper. Next, I added mixed media packaging technique to add mint and pink to the background. To lighten the colors and blend out the background, I added white gesso over the center of the page where the cut file heart will be.
I love Maggie Holmes' Chasing Dreams collection and used tags to back the mom life open letters. Here's better look at the mixed media colors peeking through.
Thanks for taking a peek at this layout! It was a good challenge for me to use a bold and busy background paper for a sweet page about my mom and I.
