Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd - XOXO -
It is my reveal week at Scrapbook Nerd, and this month's projects range in color, texture, and mediums, but all have one thing in common, LOVE. I chose to work with colorful collections, and the first one i wanted to showcase is Simple Stories's "Love and Adore collection"
The background of this page was created by tracing the fussy cut x and o from one of the papers in the collection. Using a paper piercing tool, i created a stitching guide for the letters, To complete the look, i used some watercolors to add some color to some of the letters in the background.
A few paper strips from the collection frame the page on opposite corners to ground the design. A bit of stitching adds texture, and secures the papers to the layout.
I chose to stack the same picture as a ways to layer, and bring interest to the page. A few embellishments around the page add interest, and frame the page. The title comes by gluing some of the fussy cut letters around the page. A few ink splatters complete the page:
All the texture and color in the page are the perfect background to the picture. I hope this serves as inspiration for your layouts. Don't forget to stop by Scrapbook Nerd to check what the ladies are stocking in their shelves. Remember to leave me a comment if you have any questions on how this came together.
