I have held onto this picture for years… for 14 as a matter of fact. It’s small, it’s so small. But it is precious to me, because it is one of 5 photographs that I have from when my husband and I were dating. Ahhh, how young we were. How much love there was right away!

I used the colors from the Dreamer Collection to inspire all the elements that I used to embellish the layout with. I wanted to give the eye a place to rest with the white gesso splothces, but I drew the rest of the color palette, including my alpha stickers, paints, and inks from the background colors within the paper.

I also used scraps from this collection to layer bits and strips of paper within my clusters, on top of stickers and corrugated cardboard.

Another small photo, but one in which brings back so many memories of my girls when they were ever so little. I combined the Dreamer and The Queen’s Heart collections to create this layout and I think they work wonderfully together!

I started with the backside of the “Daydreaming” paper, using it as a background, and then using some scraps from the front side of the paper I cut out some of the distressed squares. After attaching my photo to those squares, I added art mediums and paints to make the photo a part of the scene. I embellished the layout using cut-out elements from the 6×6 The Queen’s Heart paper collection, and some of the banner stickers from the Dreamer collection.
