We Really Do Love....
Hi There!! It's Lisa here with you today. Seeing as it's February, the official month of 'Love' I thought I'd create a 12x12 layout about something we as a family love. And what better collection to use, the 'Romance' collection.
This background paper here is such a perfect backdrop to my story. I do love texture and although there is no texture as such to this page it really does look like it should have some. Seeing that eye catching heart there in the middle, as soon as I looked through the collection, I was instantly drawn to this 12x12 and had to use it straight away.
I wanted to add more of a contrast though to the page to help the elements stand out more. By scraping some white paint over the centre of the design this was just what I needed. Enough to do what I needed it to, but not so much that it covered the design of the paper. I needed that heart to stand out.
You can really see here how the pieces from the 'Bits and Pieces' pack really POP!! That paint worked just perfect.
I teamed up the 'Bits and Pieces' with some of the Chipboard Stickers and the 4x6 Stickers from the coordinating pack too. To help the shape of the heart stand out even more, I sewed around the outside. Not only does this help it to stand out it adds a wonderful texture to my page. See here how I've woven my stitches under and over the heart. I love seeing detail like this on my pages.
I printed off some wording and cut into strips to document the things that we love about our favourite Disney Resort. It was such a fun way to add journaling to a page. Keeping it in the shape of the heart. Thinking back to the heart as being the original inspiration for this page.
I've enjoyed making this page so much and I'm so happy with the result.Why don't you document something either you or you and your family really love this month. I hope you've enjoyed this today. If you would like to watch me creating this page and also looking through the 'Romance' collection that I received. Please watch my video here.
