Scrapbook Circle | Shine Layout

Hi everyone!  It’s Gina here today and I’m excited to share with you a layout that I made this month using the January  All You Need Is Love Kit.  I was inspired by a recent cut file that I downloaded online to create my background.

I chose three photos and cropped them to fit within a couple pieces of the heart shape.  Then I chose papers from my kit and backed a few of the pieces.  I chose to leave the rest of the shape open so that my background paper would show through.

I added Authentique mini diction stickers and Foil Word Stickers from the  Hello Love Add-On and enamel dots from the Shine Bright Add-on.  I added drops of white paint and black ink to finish off my layout.

Tip: to add white paint to my page, I dipped the bottom end of a paint brush into a bottle of paint and flicked it across my page.  I didn't plan it, but I love that the bottom white flickers of paint mimic a heartbeat.

I hope you enjoyed my page today!  As always, we love to see how you use your kits! Please share over on the Scrapbook Circle Facebook page so we can see your work.
