This busy page was fun to make and I was out of my element on colors, so a bit of a challenge as well.
I started by cutting a 12X12 piece of paper into strips, taping it to my craft mat, and applying gesso through a stencil.
After it dried overnight, I sprayed the papers with Dylusions Ink Sprays (these colors plus Chocolate Brown).
I ran the strips through my Xyron® 9” Creative Station and diecut Sizzix hearts and letters from them.
The Xyron® 1.5” Create-a-Sticker was perfect for putting adhesive onto my letters and small hearts.
For the background, I tore a page from an old book which I ran through the Xyron® 9” Creative Station.
I applied Distress Paints to the background and spritzed Julie Balzer’s sentiment stencil with black Dylusions Ink Spray.
I wanted Julie’s words to pop some more I so wrote over them a few times with black marker and added some splats of pink paint. I also used one of Dyan Reaveley’s border stamps on some of the edges.
I really like the dimension from the gesso on the accent pieces. Many thanks for the visit today!
