The day of love is tomorrow :) Just in case you were looking for something meaningful to throw together for a special person in your life, I thought I would share the love mini album I taught in class last night.
The base of the album is all cardboard with a white wash over them. I wanted to keep things simple as we only had about three hours to finish so the only paints I took out were my Ranger Adirondack Paint Dabbers in the colour palette. I used them to make polka dots on one side and applied a tree trunk stencil in the same colour on the opposite side. No brushes, no mess, it was great.
I didn’t want it to look too contrived so used different things for the numbers such as stamps, office stickers and Webster’s Pages Storytellers. I also treated each layout as a separate piece.
I used felt hearts, vintage buttons, blue graph paper to write on and black throughout to try and keep it a little more cohesive.
I always have to use vintage papers in everything as well.
Loving the little paper bags to use as pockets for the things that might not be for public consumption.
Hope you all have an amazing Valentine’s Day and are able to celebrate it with the people you love whether you are single or not. After all, love is what makes your soul crawl out from it’s hiding place.
