All you need is love

As the Beatles once sang 'all you need is love'..or so they say....My second entry for the PA challenge is a journal page. I had had a play with the background weeks ago but didn't have a chance to go any further...no time!!. So I thought I would finish it off with some hearts..You can find the link to all the lovely projects here

The pages have layers and layers of frescos..decoart paint and different mediums and archival ink pads.

I cut 3 hearts from a docrafts die in the lovely tissue paper my pressie from Chris was wrapped in..stuck them on the page with matt medium allowing them to crinkle a bit.

I used various background stamps with black archival and stamped the love in the bottom right. I had to hand write the rest so not very neat! I went around the edge of the hearts with black portfolios and smudged it a bit and then lightly went over the tissue heart with my white big brush pen..not sure if you can see it properly. I finished by edging the page with little black dress and black pitt pen.

Thanks for stopping by................................
