Mom Layout with Elle's Studio

Hello everyone! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to celebrate those special women in your life. The Elle’s Studio April kit and add-ons are perfect for doing just that – whether it be creating a card, a layout, or a TN spread.
This month I chose to focus on a layout using the adorable Mom Wood Veneer as the focal point.

Adding texture to projects is a must for me and this one is no exception. To create the effect I was after, I added watercolor paint to the white cardstock using the smushing method. Next, I pierced several holes in the paper on either side of the painted area and stitched back and forth across the page with white embroidery thread.

With the background complete, I began layering 3 x 4 journaling tags behind my photo. If you find that one of the tags is not large enough to fit behind a picture, you can always cut it in half as I did with some of these. This gives the impression of being larger than it actually is because it can be seen on the top and bottom of the photo (or on either side depending on how it is arranged.

To complete the layout, I used the Mom Wood Veneer for the title and added a couple of the Wood Veneer Hearts to create a visual triangle along with a few puffy dots.

Here is one more look at the finished project.
