I decided to cut the design on vellum. I had to be very careful peeling it off the sticky mat because I was using a brand new one. I used my spatula to help get it off since there were a lot of little pieces. I used a lot of the new Amy Tangerine Better Together collection. I backed a few of the circles and left a lot of them empty. I love how the vellum softens the bright colors. I also did a bit of machine stitching on some of the circles.
Here you can see the vellum and pretty colors up close. I added a few paper layers and some tissue paper under my photo. I cut this cute "oh, hello there" piece from the 6x6 paper pad and then layered a flair button on top of it. I did pull a few pieces from the Finders Keepers collection and a few stickers from Simple Stories.
I've been hoarding these white Thickers. I finally broke them open and used this one! I thought the white blended in too much with the background, so I used some gelatos to give it some color, and then I traced around the edges with a black Sharpie.
Another close up....more layers...more vellum :)
I used some of the Dear Lizzy stickers here...and I stitched through them all. These seemed to say what I wanted to say, so I didn't do any extra journaling.
Here's my process video for this page if you'd like to see how I created it. I hope it gives you some great ideas!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
