These cute photos are of my youngest daughter from a few years ago. She decided to sit inside her little toy box one day and thought it was the funniest thing. So my title is kind of a funny take on that.
I fussy cut the blue heart and the "LOVE" letters from patterned paper. I wanted to be able to move the letters around a bit. I paired them with one of the Heidi Swapp puffy word stickers. I used some inks and watercolors to give some color to the letters. I added in one of the exclusive wood veneers, one of the printable labels, a Simple Stories heart sticker and some machine stitching.
I used a few alpha stamps from my stash to create the word "girl" and added my journaling under it. Mixing and matching fonts is a really fun technique. It breaks things up and keeps it interesting :)
These white and silver stickers are so much fun, and the sayings on them are great! I layered in a few scrap pieces of patterned paper here at the bottom and stitched through them. I like to bring in all the colors from the main portion of the page to any other clusters I create.
I used some gelatos and acrylic paints to add some shading to this part of the page. I didn't want to completely cover up this gorgeous pink paper, so I only added a bit of yellow and pink. I did add some white gesso over it all first. I also added some machine stitching and some loose tangled thread.
This doilie was a perfect embellishment here...I love the pop of yellow. It also makes a great layer. I used the excess blue paper from where I cut the heart out earlier. Scraps make great layering pieces!
Here's one more close-up of the bottom...this cute little flair button matches that blue heart paper perfectly. I layered it on top of a printable label and Simple Stories sticker.
Here's my process video if you'd like to check out how I made this page from start to finish. I hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you again soon!
