Hello everyone! It's Jennifer and I'm back with a layout I created using some fun Clear Scraps products! Valentines Day is almost here and my page is all about love! I'm going to show you the techniques I used, as well.
Starting with white cardstock, I blended in Distress Oxide Inks in pink, red, and yellow at the top and bottom edges of my page. I did not worry about it being perfect.
Next using the 5x9 Plaids Mixer Stencil, I added a thin layer of Crackle Paste.
Here is a close up of the end result of the Crackle Paste and the Distress Oxide Ink.
I set my cardstock aside to work on my Double Heart Mini Shaker Shape. First, I added patterned paper to the chipboard base of my shaker using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. I cut away excess paper with scissors and trimmed the edges with my x-acto knife and sanding tool.
I painted the two middle chipboard frames with pink chalk paint only focusing on the edges.
For the top chipboard frame, I colored it with Matte Chalk Polish in Pink. I applied the polish in a circular motion the the applicator contained in the cap.
Here is a close up of my Shaker assembled and placed on the layout!
Thank you for stopping by the blog! I hope this inspires you to create a page all about your significant other! You can find all of the Mini Shaker Shapes by clicking HERE! Have a great day!
