Watercolor Black & Gold Scrapbook Page

Happy Thursday! I hope your day has turned out well. We got a late start this morning because of ice & snow, so I really enjoyed a slow moving morning. Lovely & I were able to go to an early lunch together, so that was really nice! I was sure to snap a picture of us together, but as I've been scrapbooking lately I've realized we don't really have many photos together. One of the few "everyday" pictures I have, I recently scrapbooked into a really fun page! 

My page started out with a beautiful heart I painted on watercolor paper with Basic Black ink and my Aqua Painter. I've been putting my Aqua Painter to really good use lately! I just free handed the heart, and traced back over it several times. I really love how it turned out! I'm thinking of making another just to frame as art. 

Next, I started adding Gold Foil Paper hearts punched from the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  Even though I think the watercolor heart looked great by itself, this really packed the punch!! It took a lot of hearts to fill it up, but this was a great opportunity for me to use up the small scrap bits of this paper. I NEVER through this stuff away! It's like gold. Oh wait, it is! :)

I layered my heart onto a sheet of 12x12 Typeset Specialty DSP, and decided to add a Project Life card & pocket for sequins. I did this like I did the beach card the other day, and just cut the pocket from the layout, and taped the edge shut. This time, the taped edge is behind a layer so you don't see it. The Project Life card is from the Love Story Collection, and suits the page perfectly. Since the cards in this collection are stark white, I sponged a bit of Sahara Sand ink on it so it would match the DSP & watercolor paper better. I added a few sequins from the Gold Sequin trim, threads from the same, and the gold thread from the Gold Baker's Twine.

I topped it off with our photo and a couple of larger punched hearts.I absolutely love how this page turned out, and of course it helps that it is done with my favorite color combo! However, I'm thinking about switching out the picture for a black & white one. What do you think?

Hope you enjoyed the page. Thank you for stopping by. Happy Stampin'!
