THE TITLE

THIS JUMBO TITLE COMES FROM THE STUDIO CALICO LISSE STREET KIT AND THEIR THICK CHIPBOARD WITH WHIMSICAL MINT COLOR JUST SPOKE TO ME FOR THIS LAYOUT. I WANTED THE TITLE TO READ LARGE AND THE SCALE OF THESE LETTERS WAS PERFECT FOR MY THREE WORD TITLE. I PLACED THEM WITH SOME TOMBOW PERMANENT ADHESIVE AND THEN STABILIZED THEM WITH MY TINY ATTACHER AND SOME GOLD MINI STAPLES!

THE BACKGROUND

FOR MY PAINTED BACKGROUND I SIMPLY MIXED SOME WHITE HEAVY BODY ACRYLIC PAINT WITH SOME RED ACRYLIC PAINT IN VARIOUS MEASUREMENTS TO CREATE A GRADATION OF PINK TONES. I BARELY USED WATER SO THE MIXTURE WOULD REMAIN THICK AND I BRUSHED IT ON MAKING SURE TO LEAVE AS MANY BRUSH STROKES AS I COULD TO ADD SOME INTEREST.

THE JOURNALING

FIRST, I STAMPED MY DATE IN SOME STAZ ON JET BLACK INK BELOW MY PICTURE AND THEN I DREW SOME LINES BELOW FOR MY JOURNALING IN THE PROJECT LIFE PEN. I THEN WENT IN WITH A SMALLER MICRON PEN AND WROTE MY JOURNALING IN A QUICK CURSIVE.

THE EMBROIDERY

TO EMBROIDER MY CIRCLES I SIMPLY PLACED VARIOUS CIRCULAR OBJECTS ATOP MY SPREAD AND USED MY AWL AND THE WE R MEMORY KEEPERS PIERCING MAT TO PUNCH HOLES. I THEN WENT IN WITH MY WHITE EMBROIDERY THREAD AND THE BACK STITCH TO COMPLETE THE CIRCLES! IT'S SUCH A WHIMSICAL TOUCH AND BECAUSE THERE'S NOT TOO MANY OF THEM, IT WAS A QUICK AND PAINLESS PROCESS!
