Gilded Heart Summer Scrapbook Layout - Clique International


Mixed Media Summer Scrapbook Layout with DIY Gilded Rainbow Heart Embellishments

Hi! I'm sharing a fun summer scrapbook layout that I embellished with colorful gilded hearts for Clique International. I quickly fell in love with the 12x12 Mixed Media Paper Pad from the Color Study Collection designed by Vicki Boutin for American Crafts. This paper pad includes 36 sheets (3 each of 12 designs) of 170lb ready-to-use mixed media paper. I didn't have to struggle to create a beautiful mixed media background because that was done for me! Instead, I spent time creating gilded hearts to embellish the page.

How to Add a Gilded Edge to Colorful Patterned Paper Hearts Using Metallic Pigment Ink and Embossing Powder

I was inspired to add hearts to the background of this page because of the gold foil heart outlines that are printed on the mixed media patterned paper. I cut colored hearts from an older Vicki Boutin paper collection, applied gold pigment ink to the edges, and then a layer of clear embossing powder to seal the ink. I used patterned paper with printed hearts because I had it on hand. These gilded hearts could easily be cut free-hand or with a punch or die for the same effect.

How to Add Dimension to a Scrapbook Layout Using Thin 3D Foam Squares

I attached the gilded hearts to the page in rainbow order using thin 3D Foam Squares to add some dimension. I placed the paper hearts at various angles to allow some of the foil heart outlines on the base paper to be seen.
