I'm back with a NEW layout that I created using my XOXO collection! This is the very first project that I made with the collection, so I was super excited to play with all of the pretty things.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: patterned paper is probably my favorite product in scrapbooking. I buy lots of paper just because it's so PRETTY! So naturally, I wanted to play with the patterns for my first project.
I used some alphas in my stash to trace around and cut out of the patterns in the XOXO collection. I love the big, bold, blockiness of the font. It helps you be able to read the title with all the busy patterns going on.
I stitched around all of the letters to add some lovely texture to the page. I love machine stitching so much!! I also watercolored behind each letter. I tried to match the colors in the papers, but that didn't really work. I don't have some of those colors in my paints! :( It turned out ok though. I don't think you can tell that they don't match. I finished off the page with a few embellishments in a visual triangle. I tried to keep it pretty simple.
