Heart Eyes – Crate Paper

I traveled to Palm Desert, CA in April to visit my girlfriend.  I took a lot of photos of her gorgeous desert garden.  I love cacti and succulents so it was right up my alley.   It is funny to me how many of my travel photos end up being of plants, flowers, trees, and sunsets!  I suppose I take many plant photos at home too; I just love plant photos!!  I chose one of the photos of a pretty cactus to make a layout about.  The Wild Heart collection by Crate Paper is SO perfect for these types of photos!

I decided to string tags on some white bakers twine, I have made similarly designed layouts, but I just love the look!  Once I had made my tag decisions I used my Vicki Boutin Art Crayons and puddled some watercolor behind where each tag would go.  I used a custom mix of pinks and yellow and teal.  Once the puddles had dried, I went back in and added tiny splatter drops in the same colors.

I kept the embellishments on the tags pretty simple.  They are so beautifully designed they made a big impact just as they were!  A few stickers, some gold hearts, a paperclip and the alpha, finished the layout off perfectly!
