I used the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Daydreamer collection here, and I love how it turned out. I overlapped and interlocked all the hearts for the background design. I used white gesso to coat a lot of the background and then used various spray inks to add pink, aqua and yellow to the paper. I added in some bits and pieces from the Simple Stories Carpe Diem collection as well as some shiny silver puffy heart stickers from Freckled Fawn.
I just love all of these colors together, and the texture from the gesso creates a really great look. I added in some grey elements as well.
I used a flair button from A Flair For Buttons...I love the white and grey bokeh hearts surrounded by pink thread. I used dark grey thread for machine stitching.
These cute stamps are from Elle's Studio. I layered in a bit of torn striped washi tape on all four sides of the photo and added some pink stitching at the top of the picture.
I cut this "LOVE" piece from the Say Anything file. I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Tinsel to make it metallic silver. I love how it came out! I used a small piece of patterned paper to back the little heart.
Here's one more close up of all those hearts weaved together. I love that this cut file can be used for a non-Christmas project.
Here's my process video if you'd like to check it out...hopefully you'll get some inspiration from it!
