A 5-Year Love Affair

This is a 12x12 LO I did for a challenge at Smidapaper. They usually have great challenges and even better prizes, though I've never entered one before. So this is a first for me.

The challenge is to create a layout which includes the word LOVE and the number 5. All else are up to the participant. Here's my take:

First I chalk the cardstock with pale pink to give it some shadows and not leave it too black. Then I ink the sides with Brilliance: Pearlcent Pink. Paste patterned papers and the main photo. Arrange flowers - I used double pop dots for some to add dimension. Added buttons, blings and brads for the centers. I also used alpha beads to spell out 'love' for the flower centers.
Cut of the frame centers from pattern paper and added tiny photos, stick on raw chipboard and added glossy accent on the frames. Inked the number 5 and painted the letters l, v and e with acrylic paint. Punch out photo and pasted on a circle chipboard to make the letter 'o' for the word 'love'. Used stickers for all the other words and lastly, added a journaling card topped with brads and a sticker on raw chipboard.

MATERIAL USED Cardstock: Bazzil Basics. Patterned Paper: Making Memories (pink), Autumn Leaves (stripes, green). Flowers: Prima Markerting, Heidi Swapp. Brads: Making Memories (round), Frenchville (flower, heart), Doodlebug (heart). Journaling card: 7gypsies. Chipboard: Basic Greay (5, l, v,e, photo circle). Sticker: Making Memories (5, year), Provo Craft (affair), Bazzill Basics (hugs & kisses). Rub ons: Fancy Pants Designs. Inks: Tsukineko. Acrylic paint: Alpha. Chalk: Craft-T Products. Alpha beads: Apple Beads. Blings, Buttons: own collection.
