Double Hearts Mini Shaker Layout

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.
