I printed out these older photos of my grandson, Stefan a while ago and it was on my desk when the pretty new red paper release arrived on my doorstep. I wanted to use the three photos on the same page and that always poses a challenge when I make a single page. Stefan is wearing a green top in the photos and I, therefore, decided to use the Liewe Hexie Green Chartreuse (LPP0042) paper as a contrasting colour.
I matted the three photos on white and black cardstock and started working on my layers. From the back, I layered the B-side of Flourish Red Pop (LPP0066) and Liewe Hexie Green Chartreuse (LPP0042). I cut a banner from the Stripey Stripes Red Pop (LPP0070) and layered that before adding the very pretty Happy Hearts Red Pop (LPP0067) directly under my photos.
I outlined the patterned papers in black ink to create separation. I then prepared my white cardstock background by applying some antique linen Distress ink through a crackle type stencil. I glued down my paper stack and photos and then the fun began with searching my stash for the perfect embellishments to accompany the pretty papers. My final step was adding the black Nuvo Crystal drops to create enamel dots and the cross stitching on the top and bottom of the page.
