You+Me=Big Love

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! 
Today I'm hosting the 2Crafty Chipboard blog, so I wanted to make something with a LOVE mood :)
This layout represents a big love, indestructible in time.

First thing I do to start building a layout is to place the photo and the basic elements and these are the chipboard pieces.
Here is how my page looked before adding more embellishments and painting...

 I used three Polaroid Assortment Frames which I absolutely adore! They look so beautiful in the clusters and they come in different sizes, how cool is that?. 
All chipboard pieces where inspiration of this layout, even the small Asst Arrow. I love how it stands there and points to the main composition.

To paint all the chipboard pieces I used silks and H2Os Twinkling watercolors.
It is really a quick process to paint all these before gluing them down - the chipboard sucks the color and they dry in no time!

For the cluster in the picture bellow I used four different chipboard pieces: two Polaroid Assortment Frames, the word Precious and a small Hedgehog (how cute is that??? ) 
I love how they look one above the other!
