Love Love Love

Hey there, friends!  I'm sharing a page today that I created a few weeks ago for My Scraps and More.  I finally got my hands on some Gelatos...and I can't believe I didn't try them a long time ago!  They are AMAZING and so easy to use.  You just use them like a tube of lipstick...rub them on your paper and then spritz with water and rub it with your finger....and you have an instant water color effect.  I did this on some white cardstock first.  Then I used my Cameo to cut the word LOVE all over another sheet of cardstock.  I used the negatives and placed it over the gelato paper.  I really loved how it turned out!

I used papers and embellishments from Crate Paper's The Pier collection.  Love the little chipboard frames!

I'm a big fan of distressing and crinkling up the sides and corners of patterned paper layers. I also love adding string of some sort...twine, floss, jute, etc.

I cut out one of the tags from one of the patterned paper sheets, added an eyelet and some string.

A little journaling completes the project.

This is one of my favorite pages...I wanted to try something I never had before and it turned out exactly like the idea I had in my head.  That doesn't happen often...haha!

Thanks for taking a peek today, and enjoy your Wednesday!
