"XO" Double Layout
Hi there, Christine S. here with you again for some "XO" inspiration. It's a collection with fresh & lovely line of papers filled with hearts, pretty flowers & prints…perfect for all your Valentine’s creations & more. The colors are lovely as it’s not all reds, pinks & whites. It’s also balanced with light blue & black. Today I’m sharing a double layout with you. It’s not a Valentine’s layout, & it fits perfectly for the little ones in your life:
I used the Kaisercraft corrugated cardboard for my base. I painted them with black gesso, but you can use any type of black paint (acrylic/chalkboard) or black mists/sprays. Once the paint has dried, I then used my Pearl Mist & Damask template to create my background. The aim is to create a subtle shadow, & it really gave it a nice effect.
I then started layering the XO papers, collectables & stickers, doilies, photos, flowers & flourishes.
I'm really pleased how this turned out. Artfull Crafts sells the full XO collection for 20% off, & the full paper collection for 10% off. Thanks for stopping by & enjoy your week!
