Double Hearts Mini Shaker Layout

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!  It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a fun, easy layout I created using some cute Clear Scraps products! And I'm going to show you the techniques I used! Valentines Day is a little over two weeks away so we are all thinking about love!  I used the Double Hearts Mini Shaker Shape as the star of my page to document a favorite photo of my husband and me from a wedding this past summer! 


I found this matte chalk polish at my local scrapbook store this past fall and thought it would be the perfect color to use on the top frame of my Shaker.  The great thing is that it comes with an applicator built right in the lid! I applied the polish in a circular motion and found it dries quickly. 


I covered the base of the shaker with patterned paper using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. I cut away excess paper with scissors and my x-acto knife. I then used my sanding tool to smooth the edges between the paper and chipboard. 


Again using my Beacon, I affixed the two middle frames to the base followed by adding a mix of sequins and chunky glitter. I then adhered the acrylic piece followed by the top frame. 


Here is the end result of my shaker! I did adhere a die cut sentiment to the front with Beacon Adhesive. 


I secured the 6 Inch Heart Arrow Mascil to the top left of my page with washi tape. I then applied modeling paste in a downward motion. I was not concerned about the edges being perfect. I lifted my stencil and then added additional modeling paste to the lower right corner. 


Here is a close up of the modeling paste over the die cut and spray ink!  I also added brads, enamel dots and heart stickers. 


Here are a couple additional photos of my page including journaling and the title.  I do love to use foam tape to pop up words or embellishments for dimension!
