I decided to use the Quirky Quads as a background design element but on a smaller scale. I traced only four of the squares and then copied it four times. I used four patterned papers from the Amy Tan Better Together collection and staggered them on my white cardstock. I used a bit of my Shimmerz watercolors to create a bit of mixed media messyness on the background. I love how the paint peeks through the cut files!
All of my embellishments are also from the same Amy Tan line, and I combined a few different alphas from my stash to complete my title.
I just love these squares! So much fun. I love that you can shrink or enlarge them to customize the look you're going for. I cut "sweet" twice -- one is a little thicker than the other, so I layered them up to create a shadow effect. The pink "sweet" is from a Dear Lizzy Happy Place paper.
I fussy cut all these flowers and leaves from a patterned paper, and I created my own "brad" from this metal paper clip. I used my Tim Holtz scissors to snip off the clip part and just glued it down with a little thread under it.
Here's a look at the top part of the page...more awesome squares and pretty watercolor.
I decided to go with this title since the photo is of my daughter with her two missing front teeth...haha! She looked so adorable...and this title seemed like the perfect one! I made another "brad" here and layered it up with a flower and more thread.
Here's my process video if you'd like to see how this layout came together. I hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
