Free File Free-For-All

I am over on the Paper Issues blog today because It's Free File Free-For-All!
It's Friday!!'s Groundhog in the spirit of seeing shadows, 
I created a fun black and white design using the heart wreath cut file today! 
 I love the Forever My Always collection from Pebbles. 
 These papers were so much fun to get creative with!  
Let's check out my take for February and Paper Issues Free File Free-For-All!

My why-
This guy--he is literally the sweetest.  
He will randomly say multiple times a day...."Mom?" 
 "Yes, Ryan?"
  "Mom, I love you."
  I mean my heart melts each and every time.
  He gives us all kisses.  
He makes sure we are happy.  
He just started opening my car door 
for me each morning before school...
and he waits outside so he can close my door, too.
Yes, so much love for this kid.  
I don't want to forget these moments. 
 We know they grow up in a blink!

Here are a few close ups:
Gesso and mixed media in the background. I used gelatos and the packaging technique for the color to bring color to the black and white background. I wanted the cut file heart wreath popped up with foam dots to create more of a shadow and depth from the bold text patterned paper.

  Still a fan of a touch of gold shimmer to a few of the embellishments scattered throughout.  Enamel dots and hearts are the perfect sprinkle!

See what I mean?!  All the Groundhog Day homage with the dark shadowy colors, black and white photo, and popped up layers!  The ephemera for Forever My Always, is just perfect for layering.

 I love the pink stitching against the dark backdrop.  Also, I just had to rough up the edges to curl back the patterned paper to show the soft pink and cute hearts.It ties in the colors of the cut file and the mixed media gelato colors that I layered.

So that's how I kicked off the new challenges at Paper Issues!  I sure hope you will join me and post your new creations using cut files or other PI free files in the February album!
