It's a LOVE thing!!

OK......here we go for another challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show....and it's

All About Love!


I began my creation with Canvas by Canvas Corp.
I pulled out one of my vintage dictionaries and
tore out pages pertaining to LOVE and HEART.

The next step was to pull out my
Reinker Mixtures (Mini Mister, Distress Reinker, Perfect Pearls and Water)
and Color Wash.....

The color palette ~ SHADES OF RED...Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany,
Barn Door, Worn Lipstick and Red Pepper (color wash). I cut various sized heart from various fabrics.


I tore up the Dictionary pages and adhered them to the canvas with Multi Medium ~ Matte.

Just a little Infomerical here......if you haven't tried this product....you need to!!
It's a sealer, adhesive, transfer medium......just the BEST!!


With the Multi Medium, I painted lines, and sprinkled on Vintage Glitter Glass,
unfortunately you can't see it well. 
There are a couple of "Ideaology" goodies also: the key and pin.
EVERYTHING was adhered to the canvas with that FANTABULOUS Multi Medium.

The letters were painted with Charcoal Black acrylic paint.

This is a bit different from my usual style......where's the inky edges???!??!
but it's good to do something different once in a while.....
ACTUALLY seems like I've been doing it alot lately!!

So.......remember...

IT'S ALL ABOUT LOVE....

pull out your supplies and have the time of your life....
then link your goodness to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog
Who know......YOU COULD BE A WINNER!!!

This is so powerful, Lynne! The red/white contrast, open space and the dictionary pages all come together to pack a punch. It stopped me in my tracks when I first saw it. Super piece of work.

And, yes, I did have a blog facelift. I thought it was time that I treated myself to a more professional look. Glad you like it - I'm super pleased with how it came out.
