When I saw the "Place in Time" collection, I wanted to use every single piece of paper, so I decided to create a 12 x 12 album for my mother, using photos from her scrapbooks.
|My mother's precious scrapbooks|
Here is my February layout...
|Whoa Mom! Two men...not one!|
First, I cut a heart template from scrap paper and traced it onto a piece of chipboard.
Using a foam brush, I applied Mod Podge all over the heart in a thin layer.
Crumple the Tissue Wrap and press it down all over the heart, scrunching it into wrinkles as you do so.
Flip the chipboard heart over and apply Mod Podge to edges only.
Trim off excess Tissue Wrap and press down flat along the edges of the heart.
Rub the entire ink pad of Aged Mahogany Distress ink across the Tissue surface of the heart.
Because the Tissue Wrap is somewhat resistant to colour, I rubbed off the excess ink with a dry baby wipe.
I wanted the colour to have more of a brown tone, so I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Remember to wipe off the excess ink. You can continue to layer the ink like this until you achieve the desired colour.
On my layout, I backed the heart with a heart doily, that I found in the Dollar Store.
I hope you have someone special in your life that you can give your own heart to this month :)
