Designer Take: Tessa’s Hearts

Have you played along with our current challenge yet? It’s simple – inspired by all the hearts found in May’s High Five kit, create a page that features hearts. One of my favorite patterned papers in the kit is by Pink Paislee – the one with the word hello repeated with colorful hearts. I just had to play along with the challenge and use this paper:

My little guy just turned five and instead of cake, he wanted to make Oreo brownies. Our favorite phrase that afternoon was “Hello, Oreo!” The hello patterned paper was a perfect fit.

Not only does the paper (and the navy reverse side) sport hearts, but I also took it a step further with a die-cut heart background. I filled some of the open hearts with the A side, and the others with the B side. I also took a few of the negative hearts and popped them up on three solid hearts.

I don’t often make a page this busy with patterns, but the repeating shape of the heart makes it work for me.

I’d love to see how you play with hearts on a page! Join in on the challenge and I’ll come take a look. You can find all the details for entering on the original challenge post, here. Have a great day!
