This may be my favorite layout of 2014 so far. During a LOAD challenge where we were asked to have someone else make decisions about our scrapbooking, my husband looked over my Pinterest board and picked this layout from Sarah Webb that he liked because he particularly liked the word background. I spotted this background paper at A Cherry on Top. It is from Crate Paper's Flea Market collection so I got a piece to make a special page.
I'm continuing MISTical March with stenciling on the background. The heart is stenciled using some new Crafter's Workshop 2014 stencils - Rosetta and Onion Skin - in a mask I cut from the Cricut. The mists are Dylusions. What really made this pop was the shading. Here is a before and after.
The shading is just some Stampin' Up! Basic Grey ink.
The printed chipboard is from Basic Grey's Spice Market collection. There is a lot of pink in the chipboard and not so much in the papers I selected from the collection so I figured I could spare some before diving into that new collection. The wood veneer LOVE piece is Amy Tan and the little key is from Hobby Lobby in the crafting section.

Thanks for visiting today and checking out another MISTical March page. Here is last week's in case you mist-ed it (ok, I couldn't resist that.)
