I started this page by sizing the Hello There file to approximately 3.6 x 3.7 inches with my Silhouette software. I cut the file and then backed it with tissue paper. I used my sewing machine and white thread to stitch around the circle a few times.
Next, I mat the photo with tissue paper and a few layers of patterned papers. I adhered this to my mixed media background on top of a few thread nests. My background is white cardstock covered in gesso, then I used several colors of spray inks to add lots of coordinating color to the layout.
I added stickers and die cuts, making layers with the black and white striped circles behind the other embellishments. I wanted to tie in the black letter stickers to the rest of my page.
My last step was adding journaling and the date.
