I love, love, love all the papers in this months main kit.
But this paper - had my heart.
What should I do?
In the end I decided to be a big brave girl and sacrifice for my art (!)
Here is my page.
My next dilemma was how to add colour and texture without overwhelming the background. I decided to add a little something with a stencil. Now as I was at a crop when I made this and didn't have everything to hand - I made do. So the stencil (Microbial by Julie FeiFan Balzer) was untilised with a gold Delicata ink pad and cut and dry foam. It made for an imperfect look. I'd like to say that is my homage to the other side of the paper but I only just thought of it.
As I seem to need to add a top right cluster to one in every three layouts I do, I duly obeyed myself. I chose to cut one of the lovely chalkboard tags in half and wrote in gold krylon pen rather than white this time. Although that would have worked too, in order to echo the "loved" piece.
The black and cream strip is a sticker from the "I am" sheet, along with the globe and other small pieces. At the end I added in some of those fab puffy stickers from Dear Lizzy.
Oh and the title. The black side of the Love notes paper came into play again along with a Docrafts alphabet die. I then smothered krylon pen onto the Printshop Thickers
