For a little inspiration today I've put together a 12x12 layout titled "Love This"


The Hope Chest collection lends itself to some beautiful creams and neutrals with surprising and gorgeous pops of color. I couldn't get over the beautiful browns and oranges on the left paired with the floral greens on the right, so I enhanced them. I used an UmWowStudio mask, Silks acrylic glaze in solar gold, Tattered Angels mist (Charcoal, Firefly and Mustard Seed), cheesecloth, UmWowStudio Chipboard (Layered stars, Love This title, Arrow Mash), Viva Las VegaStamps! images (butterfly, fly and apha), and a couple epoxy brads on the left side. I also used the brackets from the Luxe Alphas as arrows from the "new specs" title pointing towards the photo. 



To balance out the layout I also put a cluster of embellishments on the right. I layered a Pink Paislee paper good and Butterfly Clip with UmWowStudio chip, a label, cheesecloth and a pearl brad. 


Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Your next stop is Patricia
