Can you feel love in the air ?! Valentine's Day is just around the corner and today I would love to inspire you with a layout about this celebration: in 2013 me and my hubby had a craft laboratory for couples - we made felt stuffed decorations - and a romantic dinner... Love was all around and I used amazing paper and accents from The Robin's Nest to celebrate it in this page:
This is how I made my layout and some close up.
As first step I always gather all the possible supplies I will need: I decide the picture and then search coordinating papers, embellishments, stickers and so on and put them all together. It is a great way to wake up the creative flow!
As background for this layout I chose the beautiful Valentine Stripes paper. I diagonally cutted Valentine Hearts paper and created two triangles:
After having distress the hearty paper, I glued it down - add glue only on the vertical side of the paper, because you will need to add embellishments under them:
I added pictures - remember to glue only the centre of pictures, to have space under them to add embellishments later:
From this lovely glittered paper I cut some flowers to create embellishments:
I glued them on my layout in this way: I arranged some of them under and some of them above the heart paper and the pictures, to create movement. When I was satisfied by their position, I glued them down.
I added some stickers: I love to add them also directly on pictures. I outlined the white stickers with a black pen, so they pop out of the page and don't get lost in the patterned paper:
To create the title I used Alpha glitter stickers in red and another sticker to complete it. I outlined the alpha stickers with a black pen, so they pop out of the page and don't get lost in the patterned paper:
Final touch: I added dew drops! You know how much I LOVE them, they always add an extra touch to each project! They come also in teardrops, diamond, butterfly and heart shapes... take a look!
