I spy with My Minds Eye

I spy with My Minds Eye ...a little spray ink, a few ink splatters, an array of different width/coloured papers, some stamping and die cutting not to mention some washi tape and a few pearls!

This is a layout I created for the April gallery and I wasn't sure where I was going with this page when I started out, only knowing that I wanted a predominantly gold & pink feel to the layout. I LOVE the gold papers from MME and the slightly washed out effect my daughter had applied to her selfie photo went perfectly. Add in the mix of dusty pink and I achieved a soft layered look with plenty going on from just a selection of strips of different types of materials. I was good to have a play with inks too which featured on other pages I created for the gallery last month too - think they are my go to toy at the moment! They worked particularly well on this woodgrain white card background which I think is still available in the shop here. The gold hearts and striped paper is from Now & Then Mildred can can be found here in the store.
