Spread the Love

Happy Valentines Day my Lovelies......

Hi everyone, it's my time to share my work with you for Roc Nicholas' Design Team this month...

As Valentines Day is quickly approaching and love is in the air, I thought I'd take my opportunity to use various shades of pink to make a 'loved up' journal page. Not that I ever do need an excuse to use pink!

I began by brayering a background onto a journal page, then stencilled some texture paste through a heart shaped stencil,  to add some more interest.

I also added some background stamps in a complimentary colour and added some black to make the page 'pop'...

I took a spare piece of card and used some spray inks to create a background, again using similar colours, as I wanted to cut out some heart shapes.
I coloured in an image of Roc's 'Daisy head' stamp and the 'Scallop lace border' stamp using a mix of watercolour paint, watercolour crayons and some pastel pencils.

I used some of the hearts to make a new 'hat' for 'Daisyhead', and with the others I see them to make a dimensional feature on the page.   

I found a quote which I thought was pretty apt for this page, it says "Life isn't long enough for love and art!"

I hope you like this page, and if so please leave me a message...  Thanks for looking everyone xoxo
