Want to make a custom backround with me??

Hello - Anita here again!

Thought I would share a bit of 'love heart' love and show you how I made this custom background for my layout... maybe you'd like to have a go?
First of all - I love the Stuff2Scrap love hearts - can't get enough of them - love the versatility and especially the dimension! I had a pack of the mixed love hearts (chipboard hearts #001 - you get loads in a pack!) and these T2B Heart borders (top to bottom heart borders) ....

I just took the heart border and snipped it apart to make lots of little love hearts - so versatile!! I then took a piece of kraft cardstock and attached different sized love hearts randomly with some strong glue (I used glossy accents)...

Now for the fun part... I attacked it with glimmer mist .....

I then took my distress ink and ran the pad directly over the raised hearts to make them stand out more....

Another fun thing to do with these gorgeous love hearts is to use them as a template for sewing....

Then pretty it up any way you like! I also stitched around the hearts on the left to accent them a little more. Such a fun way to use these gorgeous chippies (and I still have loads of those little hearts to use on future projects!)

So that's it for today... I am working on another really fun technique which I will share in a few days!  Be sure to have a go at the August challenge here at Stuff2Scrap too - plenty of time to get your entries in!! Have fun!
