Hello! My name is Lorilei Murphy, and I am from just north of Calgary, Alberta! I am thrilled to be joining you as a guest here at the amazing Scrapbook & Cards Today blog! Since it is the month of February, I chose to make a layout all about love! I am using the fun and sweet La La Love collection by Crate Paper and some Vicki Boutin Art Crayons!
Supplies: Crate Paper La La Love: 344551 THICKERS – FIRST KISS / 344552 THICKERS – MY SWEET / 344553 CHIPBOARD STICKERS / 344554 6×12 STICKERS / 344560 SMALL EMBELLISHMENTS / Vicki Boutin Art Crayons
I started with a 12×12 white cardstock background for my layout. I knew I wanted to add some touches of mixed media, so I primed it with a coat of gesso. I considered the idea of using the Vicki Boutin Cherry Tart paint but I 1. chickened out 2. thought it would be over the top crazy! I thought about my options and decided pink would be the best way to go!
I mixed three art crayons (red/peach/pink) on a piece of packaging and added a spritz of water. I then flipped the packaging over onto my background and smushed it around lightly in the area my photo would be placed. With the leftover paint, I added splatters by loading a brush and tapping it around the page. I kept the splatters around the photo area and then in a vertical strip.
Once my background was all dry I added my photo. I backed it with a piece of foam for dimension and added a doily and a floral cut out from white paper. To the top of the photo in the white space area, I added two super cute x & o paper clips, a speech bubble (with pop dots) and a dimensional glitter heart.
Next, I moved onto my title. I originally had the title with all the cute pink Thickers, and then I found the chipboard la la la love you a piece which fit in the love spot perfectly! In my opinion, it adds a unique spin to the title. I finished up the page by adding silver glittered hearts, chipboard hearts, puffy sticker hearts and also sprinkled on some of the confetti paper hearts included in the collection.
I love that this page is just about love and great for any time of the year, but made using a Valentine collection! Thank you so much for letting me share my page today!!
