'P.S I love you' by Elisa Ablett

Hi everyone,

Elisa here from the design team with my latest layout based on the new challenge for this month,  
a mixed media layout featuring a black background and metallic wax!

Here is our challenge - head to the Scrap Matrix Shares Facebook group to join in the fun and be in the running to win!!

Image may contain: 1 person, text

And here is my layout - using the following products from the Scrap Matrix Store

- 7 Dots Home Grown Collection
- 13 Arts 'XO' stencil
- Black Modelling Paste
- Finnabair Antique Brilliance Wax - Fire Ruby

I took inspiration from the love heart on the challenge graphic and 
thought I would actually scrap a photo of my husband and I which I rarely do...

Here is how I put the layout together!

Here are the products ready to go!

Firstly, i hand cut a very large love heart from a scrap piece of paper and then using the black modelling paste stencilled around the love heart as per the below photo.

Using your love heart as a template, cut a love heart from your patterned paper to match, i used a base grungy piece of paper without much pattern to it as i knew i was going to add a bit more background work. Glue your love heart in place, then using a sponge or your finger, smooth your metallic wax over your stencilling and a little onto your love heart to blend them together.

Using a 'Ray' stencil (mine is The Crafters Workshop) stencil with the wax through the stencil onto your page.

Add some stamping around the edges of the love heart with your Home Grown 7 Dots stamp set from Scrap Matrix.

Using a white gel pen, add a white frame around your page and also around your stencilled area. I also added scribbly writing around the outside of the heart. Then I layered different patterned papers from the Home Grown Collection Kit under my photo and to the left side of my page.

Next I fussy cut some flowers from my patterned paper and hearts as well and added them to my page.

You are finished!
