Sweet Love Scrapbook Layout with Charlene Byrd

Hello blogger friends!
Charlene Here!

February is the month to celebrate your loved ones! Today I’m sharing a layout I designed with my hubby and I. The photo was taken during one of my favourite photo shoots ever…I love the old truck!

To start I added Glimmer Mist to the lamppost sign, the words and the fence. If you read my last blog post you’ll know I get frustrated when my Glimmer Mist bottles get clogged up! So instead of battling with them, I simply grab a paint brush and dip it in the bottle. Works like a charm!

Once they were dry I randomly dabbed White Distress paint on them.

Then I gave it a light mist of Perfect Pearls mist to give it some shimmer.

To finish it off I rubbed Pumice Stone Distress ink over the top of the chipboard pieces.
(Oh and FYI…I cut the fence into 2 pieces for the layout)

Then because the photos were taken in the snow I wanted the heart and the corner swirl to have some glitter!

I started by painting them both with white paint. Then I added some Glue and Seal adhesive to them so I could glue some Tim Holtz Distress Glitter to them. I was so happy with the outcome. The Distress Glitter gave it just the right amount of shimmer!
