Hey blogland, hope you're enjoying this bank holiday weekend? I'm having a lazy one, I have a cold so this weekend I plan to cosy up with the GP for company and a spot of craftiness at some point and not much else! Hopefully I will be feeling better by monday as we have a trip to the local race circuit planned. Anyway, I did promise you a how to post....
For this layout I used a photo from the wedding and papers from Crate's Portrait collection.First I cut out the corresponding month from the calendar paper...unfortunately the one I needed was right in the middle but nevermind!!
I then used a chipboard heart as a template and drew around it on the back of some red paper.
Using the filmstrip sticker from the sticker sheet, I cut tiny scraps of paper and popped one behind each negative space.
Next I assembled the layout on a white background using all the elements I prepared above and layering with some patterned papers.
This may take a little patience, but cut out a flower detail from one of the papers...this is a great way to make embellishments that coordinate perfectly with your paper collection.
Add this to your page, layering with a couple of journalling stickers.
I then added the title, a rub on and a couple of little embellishments.
For a bit of texture I used a stitching template to punch and hand stitch a design. If you don't have a template simply draw a design on the back and punch at regular intervals.
And that's it!
Really hope you like it....if you use any of the ideas or techniques make sure you leave me a link as I would love to see xxx
