Darlings - A little bit of Valtentine

Are you celebrating Valentines Day? Our family don´t that much. Maybe some heartshaped candy will be bought, but we don´t do any major celebrating. But at my work we celebrate with heart shaped candy, cake and hugs. Might have something to do with us working with hearts....

So here comes two of my Valentines on my February DT project. The page is about my two lovely kids!

 I have used the canvas stars and arrows on this. The stars have got a bit of black in on the edges and some sparkly paint on top. The paint comes from Ayeeda (13@arts).

I made the background by using leftover paper pieces that I glued on my background paper. Then I covered it randomly with heavy modeling paste that I dabbed my palette knife in to archive the structure. Then some ink and water, some stamps and the lovely decorations to finish it of.

Material used: Patterned papers; Chic Tags School House + leftovers. Embellishments; Acrylic arrow (Basic Grey). Flair (American Crafts). Tiny Word stickers (My Mind´s Eye). Clothes Pin (Pebbles). Alphas (Dear Lizzie). Cork Arrow (Studio Calico).



  1. Oh well... love you page and how you created all that texture on the background... awesome use of the canvas shapes too!

  2. Very nice LO. Love the texture.

  3. I really love this! Such beautiful colors and texturing to highlight your beautiful children. Well done Marie!!!

  4. Beautiful layout!!! the texture...and using your bits n bobs(leftovers)...<3

  5. Love doesn't always require a celebration, right?! We go small at my house too! Your page is spectacular and anything but minimal…gorgeous colors and layers, what wonderful texturing you added. Oh one day I hope to be as skilled in the mixed media department! Thanks for sharing and inspiring, Marie!
