I Love Us


My son's girlfriend posted this picture and I just love it so I had to make a layout for them using it.
Since they had words on the picture I wanted to use paper with words on it.  
Then I remembered the single page sketch for May at "STICK IT DOWN"   This picture would work great with this sketch.   So I probably went through 7 stacks of paper to find just what I was looking for.   Actually got the background paper from one collection and the black with grey word paper in another collection.    Since there was a red heart on the picture and also red words in the background paper, I decided that would be what I would mat the picture with.   To pull everything together and
help separate the two patterns.  I also inked the edges of the small piece of patterned paper with red ink and then after it was all together decided to ink the entire layout with red ink.  I think it helped pull it all together.

Here is the sketch at  "STICK IT DOWN"  and click for the link to all the May challenges.
