It's Summer Week on the Pink Paislee blog and here's the layout I made:
LOVE SUMMER by Paige Evans
DESCRIPTION: I didn't use a single piece of patterned paper on this layout, can you believe it?! I did use a big heart background though, something I've done often but goodness I 'love' a big ol' heart background :) For awhile there it was triangles!
Here is a link to the cut file!
JOURNALING SAYS: You and glasses! You are so funny when you just HAVE to have them but then ten seconds later you break them... Goofy girl, you make us laugh so much!
HOW TO: I made a positive-space "love" heart cut file (find it below!) and used a pencil in place of a blade to draw it using a Cameo. I divided the layout into 10 vertical sections just making marks where the drawn pencil lines were - I did this so I could switch the colors of thread and make a rainbow effect. Then I backstitched around the "love" heart to create the background. I added a photo inside the "o" and then embellished with all sorts of things from Fancy Free! I splattered white paint around for the final touch.
