You & Me

The second collection by Paige Evans, Pink Paislee Take Me Away has a mix of brights, softs, girly and more masculine so it's a fab collection.  I often find that I change what I am doing halfway through a layout and this was one of those days. I started off with completely different photos and a different plan altogether, expecting to have a reasonably bright multiphoto layout.  I did decide quite early that I wanted to use my heart dies again, I've been into punching and die cutting at the moment for some reason!

I chose Paper 1 to cut my hearts out as it has a lovely purple ombre (tragically cutting into the cutaparts on the reverse) and I wanted to put those on the page fading up the page.
But once I had cut my hearts, I just could not settle on a background paper that felt right with my photo. After I eventually chose the lovely woodgrain of Paper 8 and stitched the hearts on, I felt oops...this is just not right with my photos.  I had pulled another photo out that I really liked and planned on using with Take Me Away so I thought what the heck, lets use that.

You may well think I went overboard on the hearts as I not only used the die cut hearts but used almost every beautiful pearl heart from the Foam Phrase Thickers.  I also used You & Me from the same pack to create my title.  It did seem a little extravagant but they really make a statement without being too overwhelming.  

To balance the page, I added a cluster on the right and added some word stickers from Cocoa Vanilla Love Always.  I also added some word stickers on the right side with one of the cute paper clips from the collection.

I wanted to add a few pops of yellow about the layout to tie in with the photograph, so matted the photo on the yellow paper and pulled a yellow scallop from my stash.

The other photos I planned to put on this page are currently waiting a new layout.  Hopefully they make it onto a page soon!
