Forever and Ever Layout | Shimmerz Paints

Hello Shimmerz Fans!

Nicole here and today, I have a fun layout to share with you!
 For this layout, I wanted to keep it minimal with supplies. The holiday's have recently ended and I'm trying hard to save a bit for some of the new products recently showcased at Creativation and a few things on my wish list (so hard!). So for this project, I'm using a couple mists, black embroidery floss and a few random embellishments in my stash. Here's a quick look at the final spread:

I began with a white 12x12 sheet of paper and applied gesso to the entire surface. I then chose a few mists from my stash in different tones of pink and red.  I divided my paper into 9 different sections and sprayed small areas of those colors. I did have to duplicate one of the colors, but that's OK!

When this piece dried, I cut it into squares by color and began to free hand fussy cut "X's" and "O's" in various sizes. I then laid them out over a new sheet of white 12x12 paper to start my layout. Once I knew where I wanted them, I did the "packaging technique" underneath them with the same color of mist. This gave it a nice tone on tone look in the end!  When the background was dry, I glued all the "XOX" in place and did some stitching with black embroidery floss over a few of them.  Once I was done stitching, I built my layers, added by title and embellished with a few bits and pieces from my stash.  Here are a few close ups of my final layout:
