Simple Stories - Hugs and Kisses

Hello and Happy Wednesday Day Sassy fans.
Leonie back today sharing a fun page using the Simple Stories - Hugs and Kisses range.

I really liked working with the colours in this range, the pink and red combined with aqua
look great together.

It just so happens that my old faithful Creative memories Heart punch is exactly the same size as
the hearts on the Heartthrob paper so I was able to include lots of different patterns 
from the range using only the one piece of paper. 

I did intend on scattering the hearts around but they sort of made their way into a heart shape when I was shuffling them around the page and I thought they looked kinda' sweet so I left them as is and used the sewing machine to adhere them to the page.  The black cotton made for some nice contrast too. 

The background was coloured using Prima Color Bloom sprays on 
Double Thick Bazzill.  
The Bazzill Double Thick carkstock is a great surface to work on if you like using wet mediums on your pages.

Thanks for stopping by, happy creating

Leonie Neal-Dawson

  1. Leonie, this page is absolutely fabulous!! I love how you've stitched the hearts down into a heart - very effective! I wanted to ask - how did you achieve the texture on the background under the Prima Colour Bloom Sprays? Is it dry embossing or stencilling or something else?? It looks simply divine!

    1. Hi Deb, thanks for your comment. :) I used a stencil and modelling paste on the base then added the Prima Sprays once the paste was dry. Thanks for visiting the Sassy Blog, Cheers Leonie.
