Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful (i)National Scrapbooking weekend! I was so inspired by the layouts and challenges on social media!
I had a chance to scrapbook a few layouts and today I want to share one of it with you. It was a challenge hosted by The Cut Shoppe where they offered a free cut file. It was such a lovely cut file. I have a silhouette photo at the beach during sunset and it seems perfect!
I created the background using my Derwent Inktense blocks – I wanted some of the sunset colors on my background. I wanted the paintbrush effect and also some splatters on my page. I love watercolors because I can pretty much create any colors I want. Then I diecut the ampersand cut file with my Silhouette Cameo with white cardstock. I also diecut an offset of the ampersand with kraft cardstock to layer for contrast because the patterned papers I chose are soft colors and I did not want it to blend into the background.
First I watercolor the white ampersand with light pink and after it was dry, I began layering the back of the ampersand with my patterned papers. Honestly, it really took a long time but I loved the effect of it. A good way to catch up on some tv dramas too (maybe that’s why I took a long time too :))
I diecut the title with gold glittered paper. I took the “you” from the same cut file, and “love” from the Love Rules cut file also from The Cut Shoppe and the rest of the title I cut with my own font from my computer. I embellished with the hearts I cut from the Love Rules cut file and punched some tiny hearts too.
