Are you getting spring fever? I know I sure am! I have loved seeing all of the tulips and daffodils poking their heads up through the dirt. It makes me so happy to know that we are heading into some warmer weather. With spring on its way, it is also a reminder that Easter is just around the corner.

Texture and dimension add so much to a layout, card, or mixed media project. We often hear the term “papercrafting” and that is because we know the opportunities with paper are so much more than just on the page. Missy has definitely demonstrated this in her wonderful layout. When creating a layout, choose a focal point on your page and then create embellishments that will continue to tell the story from that point. Your mixed media background will add character and beauty to your page as well. It is amazing how well this will work for you.
You can see on this very lovely layout all kinds of beautiful elements. There are some splatters on the background that give a nice contrast to the layout. Using the words “Hello Love” tells so much about the photo. I can honestly say that this is certainly an eye catcher and is very well done. Let’s pop on over to Missy’s blog Little Nugget’s Creations where you will enjoy Missy’s beautiful projects. You will certainly leave her blog feeling very inspired.
