7 Days of Valentines Projects #1

Welcome to Day 1 of The 7 Days of Valentine Projects Blog Event. Several crafty bloggers and I are posting 1 Valentine project a day for 7 days - just for fun.  We’re posting projects we made using products we like and hope they will give you some inspiration for your own Valentine craft projects. You will find links to all the other participating bloggers below. Hopefully you can find time to look at their blogs and leave comments on any that inspire you. Happy Valentine Crafting!!

For my first Valentine's project, I'm sharing an art journal love page....

My father in law bought me a box full of weird vintage cards from Sante Fe and I'm finally putting some to use. This elephant was cut up from one of the cards and adds a lot to my page

The "love" stamps are from paper smooches and hampton arts. I colored the letters with Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits. The cross border stamp is Papertrey Ink stamped in "picked raspberry" distress ink. I also used some Freckled Fawn washi tape and basic watercolors

The ink spray is all Dylusions and a dylusions mask/stencil. I used my Gesso for the first time, too! Some Stickles and liquid pearls finish it off.

Be sure to check out all the other projects from this amazing line up!
