Sketch Inspiration has an appropriately "heart-y" sketch up this week that I decided to play along with. I've had this Technique Tuesday "chipboard" type set full of hearts and borders. Its a special cream-colored chipboard that absorbs inks and paints really well - they actually call them Technique Tiles. Anyhow, I've had them for a least 3 years and the largest heart happened to work perfectly for this sketch.
I inked the heart "tile" with StazOn in Blazing Red, let it dry and then attached it to the fun polka-dot paper by October Afternoon. The colors of these papers were perfect with my little guys PJ's in the picture and I love how it keeps the layout bright and alive. There is a lot of dimension on the layout since everything basically "sits" on top of that heart shape...tons of dimensional adhesive! The blue swirls we an item I received for completing a Colorbok survey and I wasn't sure how I'd use them but I love how they look on this layout - the color was perfect and it adds just the right touch in my opinion.
Hope you are having a blessed week - we are expecting temperatures into the high-60's today and even though it's supposed to be windy - I can't wait!
