I'm here today with a new layout that will have you seeing double! I decided to use Flair Buttons from two different sets, that have the same phrase in the design. The XOXO Flair and Chalkboard Valentine's 2 Flair both include a flair button that says All You Need is Love. I loved having the same phrase in two different looks, and they were easy to mix because both have a Black & White color scheme!
I recently picked up the new Love Always collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio, so the All You Need is Love flair fit in perfectly with it. I wanted to use a lot of the CVS ephemera pieces to create clusters on the layouts. I designed the clusters to include the two flair buttons I chose for the layout.
Since the flair buttons were Black & White, I was able to pull in a variety of colors from the Love Always collection. I don't always do a lot of Mixed Media on my layouts, but I decided to add some watercolor to this layout. I used my Tim Holtz watercolor brush to paint the word "Love" at the top of the layout, and I added spots of watercolor around the clusters on the layout.
Next time you're working with your Flair Buttons from the A Flair for Buttons Etsy store, check them out to see if you have any that repeat words/phrases or graphics. Using a repetitive look is a fun way to add interest to your layouts or projects!
