I used some hearts that were cut from cardstock and used them to trace onto this sheet of white cardstock. I used a bit of gesso to color them in. I used the Prima Oil Pastels from this month's Color Kit to add some color to them. I used a water brush to smudge the color, but you can also use a baby wipe or your finger. Lots of ways to get that color down, and each one of them has a different effect. Once that was done, I took a few small circle punches and created a bunch of little circles. I kind of created a confetti look and filled in all the hearts. I also used some enamel dots from the kit. This was a really fun way to get lots of color & pattern on the layout without using it in big chunks.
I combined one of the Crate Paper puffy Thickers with one of the Dear Lizzy clear stickers for my title. Since my theme for this day was "Clever With Color," I decided to use black against all those other bright colors. The contrast makes the darks pop, but it also makes the brights pop.
These circles were easy to do, and you could even try a different shape. If you don't have punches, you could hand cut them and make them kind of wonky and crooked. Or you could trace something small and cut them out. I used some of the scraps from the punches to layer behind my photos, and I also added some tangled thread.
I used more of the Dear Lizzy clear stickers here. I cut them so I could place each word around the curve of the heart. And I love this phrase...my husband was playing with the girls and tossing them all around, so it seemed to fit :)
Here's one more shot of that beautiful puffy Thicker...it's the cutest!
Here's my process video for this page...it was fun to put together once I figured out where I wanted to start :)
Thanks so much for stopping by...see you again very soon!
