“Giggle & Laugh” ~ Mixed Media Layout

This layout was inspired by a challenge from the Secret Not secret Kit Club to scraplift a layout from Paige Evans.  I am a big fan of Paige, so this was an exciting prospect for me!  Here is the layout that I chose to scraplift:

What I liked about her layout was the painted background and flourish of butterflies in flight.  I chose this recent picture of my daughter, Sophia, and I snuggling on the couch to scrap.  This photo is in black and white because it was a little overexposed and not a great image in color.  Being black and white meant that I had a great deal of freedom with the colors I chose to use!

I used Prima Tropical Watercolors to paint the background onto Bazzill Marshmallow Cardstock and then simply began layering these gorgeous DIY Mixed Media Butterflies across the page.  I created these painted and die cut beauties for a tutorial here on my blog.

I kept my embellishments simple, printable flowers from Inkie Quill and sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps.  The word stickers are from Tim Holtz Small Talk and I think the pop of black they add really ties in the photo well.

Overall, this sweet layout came together much faster than I expected and was a lot of fun to make!  I love how bold it is and am excited to try this style again soon!  Thanks for the inspiration, Paige Evans!

Below is the process video for this layout:
