This is perhaps my most minimalist layout to date - no inking, no misting, not even any splatter (though I seriously considered it). And I just adore it.
I used my Silhouette to cut the hearts out of the background and then I backed them with various patterned papers from the Studio Calico Blue Note kit.
I kept the colors soft and even went with black and white photos so they wouldn't clash with the color scheme (the original photos have bright orange in them!)
I'm enjoying this new minimalist, cleaner style - it is proving to really be fun and satisfying!
