Welcome to our Valentine's Day post! The amazingly talented Kim Watson is featuring two gorgeous Valentine's/LOVE layouts for you today, plus another FREE download today for cut-outs on your home cutting machine! And here you go...from Kim!
Happy ? Valentines day ? everyone!
Today is indeed the day of love! So to round off our fest of crafty loveliness and to honor those we love most in life, I have some projects to share with you using our
The gorgeous papers teamed up so well with some of my favorite artsy techniques, resulting in great, sophisticated page about 'grown-up' love. The fun part was creating my background page. The freedom of layering mist, paint & texture paste on to papers is so satisfying, and thought you might like a peek into how I went about it.
Here is an overview of my creative process if you'd like to try this for yourself.
2) Mist positive & negative heart shapes on-top of the dried texture paste & allow to dry completely.
3) Over-spray the layered page wit a large dot design, using grey mist.
4) Draw chevron arrow shapes using a die cut stencil & thin marker.
5) Splatter ink in a few colors for a little flare, making sure to allow enough time for the page whole page to air dry before completing the rest of page.
Tip: Make the most of your stencils by tracing inside the designs using a thin marker directly onto your page.
Have you noticed that some of the patterned papers of the Love Note collection have plain backs? I love their versatility in that being slightly thinner than cardstock, they are perfect for creating die-cut titles like I did here.
BONUS: We have a little FREEBIE download for you because we love YOU (our fans) so much, and after all it is Valentines day ? . Please feel free to use the designs for your own personal use, with compliments from Fancy Pants Designs.
Love You by Kim Watson
I was on a roll after my first page, so couldn't resist a second about my Hubby & I using our Love Note collection. This time I added the punched-out word 'You' from the Artist Edition Stencils as a title.
Don't you just love the oversized letters? perfect for an eye catching title.
A pink misted sunburst onto white cardstock, made the perfect background for my photos.
I hope you found this inspiring!? Remember to keep posting your creations using fancy Pants Designs products to our Facebook page, we'd love seeing & sharing your work with all our fans.
From all of us here, at Fancy Pants Designs, wish you a very Happy Valentine's Day! Have a love filled one!
