dress it up...
Hello my fabulous friends!
Are you ready for Valentines Day?
Well, My Mind's Eye has a beautiful line entitled "Lost & Found" that is perfect for your Valentines projects.... Although, in all honesty, who needs to wait for any specific day to tell someone you care?
I love the dress form trend. Something about them is so inspiring... They are like a canvas waiting to be decorated.
Last year, at the Scrapbook USA Expo, I picked up a fun flower die by Joy! Crafts called "Fantasy Flowers #2". All those tiny little blooms making up the skirt were cut using that die... I love the added dimension it gives!
A fun way to get more out of patterned papers is to brush on a layer of Gesso to cover parts of the pattern. This allows you to stamp an image onto a busy patterned paper without losing the image. To keep with the vintage feel of the papers, I lightly tinted the Gesso with some powdered pigments.
