It's BIG TITLES week on the Pink Paislee blog and here is the layout I made for the occasion:
LOVE by Paige Evans
DESCRIPTION: I love hearts, I love hand stitching, I love using big'n'bold background elements, and I love a big title! So here is the layout I made combining all of these things I love!
JOURNALING SAYS: Everything you do is adorable! Cuz you're just the cutest little girl in the world and I love you!
HOW TO: I started by searching the Silhouette store for a big heart and found shape #61514. Instead of die cutting it, I replaced the blade with a pen and drew the love heart. Then I pierced a hole every 1/4" or so all the way around. To help the love heart stand out from the colorful polka dot paper, I painted it with several coats of white paint and let it dry. For the backstitching, I changed threads every 10 stitches using colors of thread from the colored polka dots in the paper. To define the love heart even more, I used a sewing machine with white thread and straight stitched once inside. Then came the trio of photos, embellishing with Fancy Free elements, and a bit of journaling!
