Hey there, MME friends! Missy here with you today to share our February Challenge. What better way to celebrate the month of love than with a challenge related to just that. Our theme this month is "All You Need is Love.” And you can interpret this anyway you’d like. You know MME has plenty of beautiful collections that showcase LOVE, so pull them out and dig in!
I created this layout featuring a photo of me and my husband from a few months ago. I used the Cupid’s Arrow collection because it’s so perfect for a layout about love. I really love this blue sunburst paper, so I began there. It reminds me of light just bursting from the photo, and I love the effect. I wanted to cover up the design on the paper, so I used some gesso to blend over it. I just took an old credit card and spread it around in various places. The layers behind my photo add dimension over the gesso. I love the red, blue, black and grey combo in this line, and I wanted to use them all around the photo. Between the papers, the stickers and the washi tape, it was easy to pull in all of those colors.
I cut the word “together” on my Silhouette Cameo. In this close up, you can see so many elements going on. The washi tape, the alpha letter & word stickers from the Lost & Found line, stickers, stamps…I just love mixing everything together for a unique look.
The chipboard hearts in the Cupid’s Arrow collection are so fun! I added several of the little enamel hearts to it here. I also threw in a tangle of red thread…it’s my newest thing to play with. I love that it adds a pop of color.
If you haven’t tried washi tape yet, you simply must! Here, I used a few different ones to create a few strips below the photo. It’s fun, fast and easy to use, and you can do much more than just for this. You can tear it long ways and make it uneven, or even hide the edges behind paper or a photo and let just a little peek out. I did that with the grey tape on the right side of my photo.
More stickers! I pop dotted this one up so it would stand out a little more. Don’t you just love those enamel arrows? Adorable!
So, now it’s time for you to join us! We’d love to see what “All You Need is Love” means to you. This can be about your significant other, a parent, a child, an animal…however you are inspired by it. We can’t wait to see your designs!
