Sweethearts Forever

Welcome!  Today I'm sharing a Valentine's layout of my beautiful daughter and her handsome husband.  

Blue Fern Studios Blush collection paper is perfect!  I like using the print on the paper as part of my design. Prima Wild Roses stencil was applied with Finnabair White Crackle.  This page reminds me of an English garden, full of different flowers. 

I layered double hearts and added a cute simple bow.  For the title, I chose to use the printed 'Sweetheart' word on the page, changing it to plural by adding an 's' with a dark brown colored pencil.  :)

A metal 'forever' word completed the title.

Blue Fern Studios has such beautiful chipboard! I cut off the top half of this butterfly dangle to shorten it; acrylic painted it in light buttermilk color; and then inked the edges.  The heart shape is acrylic painted with a mixture of cherry and light pink.  Layering a paper butterfly and making antennae shaped like the heart really dressed up this piece.  

An eyelet was used so the ribbon could be tied to make the chippie appear to be hanging.

The resin heart is acrylic painted and accented with Old Silver wax.

Here are some close-ups of the flower arrangements I put together.

Thanks for visiting and have an enjoyable day!  Lisa : )
