Hi friends! Today I thought I’d share a little page with you and show you how I worked on it in stages.
I started with my favourite Felicity Jane heart stencil and some modelling paste.
When that had dried, I sloshed over lots of watery paint in my favourite shade of blue.
I used a heart shaped label as a template to cut hearts out of a paper bag. I love the crinkly, imperfect texture!
Next came my usual trick of layering up pretty papers behind my photo.
I like a really light, bright look, so often choose subtle black and white papers as layering pieces.
Next it was time to start popping everything down onto my page.
I love how the hearts aren’t pure white, so they add a little something to my page without shouting too loudly.
At this stage, I grabbed my sewing bits and stitched around one of them too, just for some extra interest.
And here’s the finished page! Lots of hearts, lots of my favourite blue and lots of found items.
As well as the paper bag hearts, we’ve got the tag from my new winter coat, some plastic doilly (from a cake we bought at a church sale) and some waxy cheese wrapping.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
