As soon as I got my first Oh My Heart box in the mail (and after dancing around the house a bit ;) I got straight to work making pages for my booth at CHA!
LOVE YOU TO PIECES by Paige Evans
DESCRIPTION: There are TWO papers in Oh My Heart that have a bunch of different squares of different patterns! Those are my favorite to use, especially when I teach classes, because you get a whole lotta bang for your buck! It looks like you use so many different papers, but really, you just used one. Genius :)
JOURNALING SAYS: Even though you're 4.5 years old it seems like I'm always carrying you! Haha! Well, it is much faster to get from point A to B if I hold you and you let me so I'm gonna keep on!
HOW TO: Prime a white cardstock background with a layer of modeling paste and let it dry. Watercolor (matching the colors of Paper 24) stripes down the center of the page. Once the watercolors are dry, whitewash over it with white acrylic paint, and let it dry. Free hand cut a long title from the patterns of Paper 24 then figure out where you want them. Stitch each row of letters in place and gently bend up the letters for dimension. Adhere three photos and embellish the centers of the open letters with chipboard flowers and a heart. At the beginning or end of each row, stamp a matching colored trio of hearts.
