Hearts and leaves | Lisa

Hello and welcome to my second post for Studio Forty! Today I have two projects for you, one took a bit longer and the other was a quick one. I´m going to start with the one that I worked a bit longer on. I often find heartshapes in nature and I wanted to scrap all the ones I took photos of last year. So I first found my photos and then used 9 of them to make a collage before printing them out. I had 111 photos so I printed 2 of them a bit larger.

For the background on the right page I wanted to make one of my own. So, I used one of the heart stamps from the cute Love, love stamp set and stamped all over my page. 

When I was sure my ink was dry I used my watercolors to paint the hearts in. I choose a green shade because it represent nature for me.

I used my 2 larger photos to make a little booklet on the left side. This is easy! I just line them right side against right side and add a washi strip to the right side.

This is a look at how I did a simple front page for the little booklet. I wasn´t sure if I wanted to use the bigger scalloped circle or the smaller circle as my accent so I stamped the sentiment from the Botanicals set on both so I could see how it looked. I ended up using them both! I simply layered them on top of eachother using a foam dot. On this photo above you can also see where I put my washi tape that I explained a bit further up.

I love that the little booklet makes the spread a little interactive!

Let´s move on to my second project that came together quite fast.

I really wanted to use those beautiful leaves on the Botanicals stamp set, and for this I used a teal colored ink. One of my tricks to create different shades when I stamp is to simple stamp twice. First I stamp one time with full ink and then once more with the leftover ink.

Here is a closer look at the finished product. Do you see the different shades? I think it makes for a more textured look. I finished the page with a label that matched my ink perfectly and more stamps from the Love love set, a sentiment sticker from the Everyday words set  and lastly a star from my stash.

Thank you so mych for stopping by!
