Always young at heart

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:

It was a fun page to do and a bit of a change for my album.

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. 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!

  2. Love the misted background and so clever to use the masks for a beautiful card!

  3. Cool technique... thanks for sharing... and you got a 2fer too! NICE! Kathi

  4. These turned out so great!!! Thanks for sharing your process! You know how I love that :)
