Happy Valentine Sweeties! To all of you! And today to celebrate you get a special Valentine spread from me with all love and hearts:
Hope you forgive me that the journal is still in pieces, but the cover is drying, so the rings are out. But the spread was ready and I just wanted to share my love with you. All hearts and all love, all reds and all pinks. It all began with misting a page, I used vintage pink and cross my heart glimmer mists.
Gorgeous how they reacted with each other (page was water misted before). Next I used my Stampotique stamps to add more interest to my background. Jo’s French text (#3016) was stamped with black archival while Daniel’s hearts (#6109) was shadow stamped with distress ink (worn lipstick).
I used some paper scraps to stamp pattern with Medium checker board (#8947). Then on my pattern I stamped France’s My heart (#10008). On a white scrap I stamped Roc’s Stacked love (#2427).
I distressed the edge of my text with aged mahogany. I added a small piece of lace, underneath a pink tag, the inner side is my journaling (secret love, I keep it for myself sweeties). The tag was stamped with France’s design cube that falls somehow always into my hand (#10012). And my mojo said it asks for an embellishments so there it came that black square brad.
My heart got trimmed and stitched on some canvas piece and some lace.
Finally some enamel white heart embellishments asked to jump on my spread. I made them pop with black gel pen.
I am sharing my spread with Stampotique designers’ challenge: all love and hearts.
And I am adding it to Journal 52’s Valentine prompt.
Thanks for joining me on this special day. Wishing you a lot of love, care and attention!
