Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  -  XOXO  -

Hello there!

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.

Take care!
