Hi CVS friends! Anna here with you sharing a new layout. This week we are focusing on using black because of Black Friday. And I really love black. For today’s project, I have combined black with much softer tones. I think it turned out very beautiful.

For my background, I used a watercolor sheet to do the plastic technique with black dye ink. I created a diagonal design and then, I did a lot of black splatters with pink ones too. I covered most part of it, but you can still see part of the background peeking out behind the circles.

I used the 6×8 Paper pack from More than words and Daydream collections to cut out a bunch of circles in different sizes. I placed them across the page, raising some circles with foam dots to give more dimension.

Between the circles, I also glued some flowers from the Daydream Die Cut Ephemera pack. They match really well with the More than words collection. As the theme of the page was circles, flair buttons were perfect and also add dimension and texture to the layout.  I cut my picture with a circle die as well.

I used some phrases from the More than words Accessory Sticker and I arranged three of them all over the page. For my title, I chose the Unforgettable foam title stickers. I love its script font and the deep black and how it stands out. Black hearts are from these stickers too.

To finish off, I cut half an inch from each side of the paper, framed it with black cardstock, and I did a machine stitching all around the page.

And that’s it! I hope you like it and gives you some inspiration to use black in your projects. Thank you so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
