Oh, what a week it has been at the Mailbox! Valentine's is one of my most favorite holidays to craft for and this past week has been a flurry of lovely hearts along with a bit of waxing and waning :)
I have had more fun working through Wilna's Art Class at Two Peas and combining the techniques she explores with my Valentine crafting this week.
So, before this sweet holiday is over, let's sneak one more project in!
My hubster and I have been flooded with adorable little notes from our girls this week as they have been doing their own Valentine crafting and I want a scrapbook page to save them all in.
I had more fun layering up envelopes and SMASH cards when I did a page for my JYC album, that I am going to take inspiration from that!But first, a little stenciling with white acrylic paint:
While that dries, I will add a little wax from a candle to this chipboard piece. THIS is my new favorite way to use wax! I love the texture it adds to these chip pieces. I think it gives them a little bit of a handmade feel... less manufactured maybe? Plus, the chipboard is so stiff that there is no chance of the wax cracking off.
While all of that dries, time to piece together a little title:
This envelope will work well to hold all of those sweet notes:After my SMASH cards are all layered up, I just play around with my banners:
Now, I want some more of this color that is in my title spread about the page, so I will just grab some of the often left-over letters to tuck in and around. Just a peek of color without the letter showing...And there we have it!!!
Lots of color, layers, and patterns!
And a place to keep our sweet notes...
Complete with a waxy chipboard piece:
Hope your Valentine's Day was wonderful!
