Love in Paris

Hello and good morning! ^__^

I'm Halak and today I'll be taking you through a love themed layout tutorial.

What does the final layout look like you ask?

Like this :

So.. let's get started!

I've used the following 4 paper sheets from Papericious Love In Paris paper collection.

This paper collection is a part of Premium Collection by Papericious and man... it is GORGEOUS!

It's got that perfect blend of designs that'd make wonderful Shabby Chic and Vintage themed projects. Apart from this, it would make awesome Journal pages, especially a travel journal!

When I think of Paris, I think, Love. A romantic destination. Hence the layout. But let this not limit your imagination.. Paris is also famous for fashion and food! ^__^

I started by inking up a large stamp partially and stamping it onto the patterned paper.

Tip : Rather than inking up the whole stamp for layouts, it is advisable to ink stamps partially. Adds more interest to a project.

Next I took two sheets and cut out / hand-tore sections from it to position around the stamped image.

Then I placed the two cut-outs onto the project and decided where to adhere.

After adhering the pieces, I did some more stamping and added sentiment + small washi tape bits.

Tip : Look for stamps that co-ordinate with your theme and select accordingly for project. I was primarily going for a shabby chic look with faint vintage undertones, so I selected stamps that would give me a worn out / distressed effect.

If you do not have stamps that sport the distressed look, what you can do is ink up a stamp and stamp it lightly onto scrap paper first and then use the second generation stamp for the actual project.

After that I added some pearls, tiny flowers (and gave them a pearl center) + some more background stamping.

Used a damask stencil with pink dye ink for more texture.

I also cut out a postcard in pink (first design from the left in the image containing paper design details), hand-tore it and added random bits of it to select areas of the project.

You can see the hand-torn post card adhered in this close up image :

I also added a Papericious Adhesive Button that had a beautiful scene featuring the Eiffel Tower. (So pretty and perfect for my project!)

Lastly added some script stamping in the background and glitter to the sentiment along with a few pink enamel dots that you see in the very first picture of this blog post.

And that's how I did it!

I have one last close up to share with you folks before signing off :

Yikes, almost forgot! Once the layout was done, I matted it onto red cardstock and gave it a thin border on all sides.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Till next time! *Hugs*
