Artbooking Made Easy: Love is in the Air Video

Pull out your Artbooking booklet and turn to page 58 and 59 to follow along with today's video.  All images will be cut from there!

The "You + Me" layout is mostly talked about.

For later reference, if you want to recreate this page, here are the Real Dial Sizes Carly mentions:

Frame around the kissing couple: 4"
My Valentine cluster: 1.5"
People in cluster: 2.5"
Heart behind people: 2.5"

Carly didn't mention the size "you + me" was cut, but from looking at it, I would guess around 4"

The second layout features an umbra look using inks that are behind those white hearts.  The technique:
Take a pigment ink pad (these are about 1" square pads -- for better control) and lightly swipe it back and forth from the center of your desired area of ink.  As you reach the end, pull up on the ink pad.  You can adjust the intensity of the ink color by the amount of pressure you use while swiping.

Carly mentions that several ink pads were used, but you could just use one color to highlight an area.

If you have any questions, please ask!
