XOXO Layout by Lady Nany

Saturday, January 26, 2019

Hi everyone, it's Lady Nany here with a new layout using the Whimsical collection and Paige's XOXO cut file that I found ideal to remember my stay in Chile with my boyfriend at the beginning of the year. My idea for this page is inspired by love. I decided to also use the Wonky Heart Background in the form of stencil, cutting it from white cardstock with my Silhouette Curio.
For the background I chose the hearts paper with gold details from the 12x12 Paper Pad and I covered it with white gesso using the stencil all over the surface. Once dry, I colored with watercolors in pink tones, staining and spreading drops on the area where I would put the XOXO file I cut from Paper 17. I backed the flowered areas with white cardstock to highlight them and created depth using foam tape.
For the photographs I made a composition of frames with vellum paper and cut outs from Paper 07 before sticking it between the letters of the file with foam tape to also give them some volume. For decoration I combined flowers and hearts from the Sticker BookChipboard Stickers, and Ephemera Die Cuts, ending with the title combined with Foam Mini Thickers. I drew a few crosses at the edge of the file with a black pen and I wrote the date and journaling. And that's all friends!
I hope you find inspiration in this project to create your own designs. A little secret that helps me a lot is to go to Paige's Silhouette gallery and visualize the cuts to develop ideas. Thank you very much for visiting, see you next time!
