I've got a thing for hearts!
You can find hearts in my house everywhere! Hanging on a door knob, in front of the window, on the wall, heart shaped tins, wooden hearts, fabric hearts, metal hearts... you name it!
When I go to the beach, not a sandy beach but a pebble beach like you can find them a lot along the river sides in France, I'm always on the look out for heart shaped pebbles.
This year I was very lucky. I found at least 1 heart shaped pebble every time we went to the river and now they are on my dining table where I can see them every day. Love that!
I used a picture of a selection of pebble hearts for this layout:
To create the background for this layout I first added some gesso to the paper. Then I used punchanella and Versamark to create the dots which I embossed with a mix of silver and pepper embossing powder from WOW!.
When this was finished I sprayed some Tattered Angels Dragonfly Glimmer Mist on my craft sheet and put the background paper with the right side down on top of the sprayed mist. After lifting the paper up I let the paint run down the page.
The heart is created out of 2 wooden pieces (Wood Veneer Die-Cuts from Studio Calico) that were embossed separately and then glued together. The solid lower part was embossed with a mix of pepper regular and silver super fine, the upper part with silver pearl super fine.
The garden wire was first painted with gesso to create the texture and after bending it in the right shape I embossed it with silver.
The page was embellished with rub-ons and a butterfly die cut that was sprayed with Dragonfly too.
OK, I'm off now to clean out my studio. I've been kitting for 2 days and it's a big mess. Tonight I have to teach there so I guess I've got some work to do! :)
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you found some inspiration!
