Together Always

Hey there, friends :)  Missy here. I hope you've had a great week!  I'm so glad it's Friday! 

Today I'm sharing a layout I created for last week's Pinspirational Crop.  I hosted an inspirational quote challenge.  I found this on Pinterest and used it as inspiration.

I created this layout using the gorgeous Maggie Holmes Open Book by Crate Paper.  Although there is a TON of ephemera and die cuts in this collection, I went minimal here.  I backed a few die cut hearts (from The Cut Shoppe HERE).  I gessoed my background and then used distress inks & water and some plastic packaging to smudge it around.  I love the watercolor effect that creates.

I added in some of the vellum pieces and some thread here.  That LOVE transparency piece is from Heidi Swapp....and I actually found it on the floor next to my desk chair from one of my earlier projects.  It matched, so I made a place for it :)

I created a heart cluster at the top right using stickers, a fabric covered brad, some machine stitching and a few rub-ons.

This collection is full of these fun vellum pieces.  The hard part is choosing which ones to use...the choices are endless!  I love these rub-on hearts...probably one of my favorite parts of the collection, I think.

You can find this collection in the My Scraps Store!  

Thanks for stopping by!
