My Thumb Sucker

Happy Monday!  I have a pretty new layout to share with you today!  I've really been on a mixed media, embossing kick lately for some reason. I really enjoy adding different elements and textures to my pages, but for some reason all of my mixed media supplies are the last thing I think about when I sit down to create.  I need to change that...

This page was inspired by this layout I put together for Wilna's blog a few weeks ago.  I used a similar technique for embossing the die cut in the video, so if you are curious about how I managed to make the hearts so pretty, be sure to check out that video.

The heart die cut is a file from Wilna's shop.  I love how it's so intricate and feminine.  And the shiny pink/peach color just makes it pop off of the white background.

The cut file is sized at 12x12, but I reduced mine slightly so it wouldn't take up my whole page. 

After it was embossed and adhered, I layered on my photo and a few pretty embellishments.

It may seem like a complicated page because there is so much going on, but it really was so easy to put together!  Sometimes a beautiful background and spark the beginnings of a beautiful page!!
