Seldom do I do a page without journaling. This photo was pretty self-explanatory and I just wanted to capture the moment using some of my husband's favorite colors and convey the sentiment of the title. I was inspired by the great pages of Ashli Oliver over at the Purple Mail Box blog.
I photographed my process so I could share and so I could remember what I did and probably because that is what Ashli does for her artistic pages. Starting with some mistable paper from Stampin' Up! that has a built in design, I added a layer of mists. I've used Mister Huey, one Heidi Swapp and several homemade mists:
The handwriting shows through on the paper after misting. This paper has been discontinued but I've seen similar products at Archiver's. Next I added hearts cut with the Cricut as masks.
Another layer of mist:
Finally, I added some diecut hearts from a DCWV designer paper in the space left by some of my heart masks.
The white masks got a nice coating of mist and I've used them on this card:
Thanks for stopping by today!
Both projects are beautiful, Lisa. And what a great idea to re-purpose the misted hearts to use on a card. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
