I started this layout by creating my background by swiping a black ink pad roughly across some white cardstock. Once the ink was dry, I added the doodled border along two sides of the page using a black sharpie pen, and some doodled hearts using my heart mini stencil and a coloured sharpie. Next, I added some pink and black mist splatters and finally I drizzled some white Flutter Colour Paint over the top.
I used Everyday Etc filler cards from the range to create a layered mat for my photo, and then fussy cut my title from another 'Mad About You' Everyday Etc card. I also used a card to cut the large and smaller striped hearts. Next to my title, I placed one of the coordinating flair buttons (from 'Mad About You' set 1), which I nested on some pink thread.
On top of the large heart I had cut, I placed the wood veneer people (coloured black with a Posca pen), which I layered with some white thread. I also added some faux stitching around the edge of the heart using my sharpie. Tucked in behind my photo was a page tab (from the 'Partners in Crime' collection).
I embellished directly onto the corner of my photo using a couple of pieces from the 'Mad About You' Die Cut Bits & Bobs pack. Along the bottom edge of the photo, I placed the peas and carrots quote sticker from the 'Mad About You' Sticky Quotes sheet.
To finish off my layout I added a bit of extra stamping using roller phrase stamps and a date stamp; then some scattered pink and black sequins around the page. They were the perfect finishing touch for my fun page!
Thanks for stopping by today so I could share this with you. I will be back again in a couple of weeks with another project to share. Until then, good luck with your Christmas preparations and happy scrapping! X
