Lucky Hearts

Friday, March 6, 2020

Morning, y'all!  TGIF!  I hope you all have spectacular plans for the weekend.  I was hoping to have a little time off from the busyness of the season, but we've just piled more things onto the to-do list.  We'll get back to those relaxing weekends one of these days.  All in due time.  Anyhow, I just wanted to pop in to share another page that I've been working on using the January 2020 Hip Kits.  Check it out!
I started this page by adding puddles of periwinkle and blue watercolors to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  I then splattered it with those same shades of watercolor, as well as green, bright pink, and red watercolors, before stamping the background with two rows of interlocking, open hearts, which I also watercolored, using a trio from those same five shades listed above.  The entire page was then splattered once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  I then fussy-cut three rows of hearts from Pink Paislee's Lucky Us, patterned print and anchored them, over my previously-stamped rows, with white-threaded, zig-zag, machine stitching.
That set the stage for my photo, which was matted with white cardstock; set atop a trio of patterned prints, all anchored with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching; backed with a mustard tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow, as well as a snippet of cheesecloth for texture; and sandwiched between a couple of "king [and] queen of my heart", foam, accent Thickers.
A chipboard circle frames the foam florals, which were accented with black and white, leafy and heart die cuts, as well as a chipboard, "celebrate today" sticker, near the top of the design.
The "Cute", puffy sticker overlaps the "lucky", foam, phrase Thicker, which in turn overlaps a "THE BEAUTY OF RIGHT NOW" die cut, grounding the design.
A duo of stamped, in Jet Black ink, phrases...
number of additional, chipboard, circle stickers and die cuts, one of the latter of which was embellished with Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents; and a handful of sparkle, enamel dots complete the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I've been up to.  Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
