"Love Adventure" Wall Art Decor

Hi there,

Today I'm sharing some "Love Adventure" wall art d├ęcor that I created with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist Paint, flowers, charms and gesso. I used a heart shaped wooden plaque found at a local store as the base for the project. The ribbon was dyed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to coordinate with my art. I used the Violet Rose Chalkboard Mist Paint and the Festival Glimmer Mist to dye the ribbon. I'm adding a super easy tutorial below.

Step 1: Spray the Chalkboard paint onto the wooden heart and evenly cover the heart with paint using a foam brush. Let dry.

Step 2: Adhere clear bulb to painted wooded heart using hot glue.

 Step 3: Add flowers using hot glue.
 Step 4: Add dyed bows.
 Step 5: Adhere Love Charm with hot glue.

Step 6: Highlight flowers and charm with gesso and tap gesso onto the entire art piece using paint brush.

Thanks so much for visiting today...:)

"Create Lovely Moments" Mixed Media Wall Art


Hi there,

To celebrate Valentine's Day, I'm sharing this "Create Lovely Moments" Mixed Media Wall Art that I created with Glimmer Mists and Color Wash Paint by Tattered Angels. The base was a blank wooden shaped heart that I picked up from a local store. I applied Latte Color Wash Paint to the wooden heart and then sprayed mist colors: Purple, Iridescent Silver and Tropical Pink. I also dyed ribbon with the Glimmer Mists to coordinate with my project. I also used coordinating Petaloo Flowers, stamps and dies by Heidi Swapp, dies by Tim Holtz and gesso.  I loved the end result.  I'm adding a close up pic below.

"Love" Journal with A Little Love by CCB



Hi there,

Today I am sharing a "Love" journal that I created using the A Little Love” paper collection by Canvas Corp Brands. I love this collection and have been creating with it since I received it last month. The paper collection is perfect for Valentine's Day and Love themes.  The paper has white core, so creating a distressed effect was effortless when using a sanding bar.  There are several patterns in the collection and the multiple layers used on this journal really showcase the versatility of the collection. I complimented the papers with crystal pins, back ribbon and a sweet love charm.  I'm adding another close up pic below.

"Beautiful Love" Altered Ribbon Spool





Hi there,
I created this “Beautiful Love” Altered Spool using a vintage ribbon spool as the base. It’s a perfect Valentine’s keepsake and a great gift for that special someone in your life. Journaling and photos can be added to the spool to preserve wonderful memories. I used some really awesome products to create the Altered Spool. In addition to the vintage ribbon spool as the base, I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and the “A Little Love” paper collection by Canvas Corp Brands.

Step 1: Cut “LOVE” pattered strips from “A Little Love” paper collection. This will require 2 cuttings from (1) 12 x 12 piece of paper from the collection.

Step 2: Using adhesive, reinforce the edges of the far left side of the 1st strip and the far right side of the 2nd strip, using a 1 x 3 piece of coordinating patterned paper from the collection.
Step 3: Add 2 eyelets to each reinforced edge.
Step 4: Connect the 2 strips by adhering the strips together and reinforcing with eyelets in the center. Note: This step creates (1) 24 x 3 patterned paper strip. Sand the patterned paper strip with a sanding bar.

Step 5: Attach patterned paper to the vintage ribbon spool using dyed ribbon. Note: The ribbon was dyed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist colors: Lobster and Rich Mocha.

Step 6 Wrap the patterned paper strip around the spool to determine where to attach a pull to the spool. Add the metal pull to the spool.
Step 7: Run dyed ribbon though the eyelets that were placed at the end of the strip, wrap the ribbon around the pull and create a knot to secure the closure.
Step 8: Add flowers and dyed bows to the top of the Altered Spool.
Step 9: Die cut hearts using a die cut machine and patterned paper from the “A Little Love” paper collection. Sand the hearts with a sanding bar and add to the Altered Spool.
 Step 10: Die cut the “Beautiful” script using a die cut machine and black cardstock. Add the script to the Altered Spool.

“Cherish Love” Tag



  
Hi there,

Today I'm sharing another tag created with Rita’s Heart Wing Artfoamie stamp. I continue to play with this Artfoamie due to its versatility. This “Cherish Love” tag is the perfect tag to create for Valentine’s Day. It’s great for a loved one or for your crafty space. The tag measures 6 ½ x 3 ¾. I’m including an easy tutorial below. Take a peek below. 



I began this tag by spraying mist onto the Heart Wing stamp, stamping onto watercolor paper and cutting the stampings out with scissors. Set aside.




I then embossed some Valentine’s Day themed patterned paper and distressed the paper with a sanding bar. Note: I chose "A Little Love" paper collection by Canvas Corp Brands.


Next, I added a layer of patterned paper to the embossed patterned paper.


 I then added a metal charm with cheesecloth and added an eyelet to the tag using a Cropadile.




Next, I added the Heart Wing stampings and script die cuts to the tag.

 Lastly, I added dyed ribbon bows and a heart charm.


I always enjoy using the Heart Wing stamp.  The stamp provides so many options due to the variations in the stamp impressions. The stamp can be found using the link below:

Die cut scripts, charms and a photo were added. I'm adding a couple close ups below:

The ribbon was dyed with mist colors: Capri Blue and Dragonfly. I loved the variation in the blue combination and absolutely loved the end result.
