Check them out!      Get ready for Valentine’s Day My first project is an easy and fast card that could fit any dear and special valentine.

Mixed Media Art Journal Page: Follow your Heart

Art journal pages are a form of personal expression and I think they have the power to encourage us, lift us up and inspire us when we need it. I always try to add positive messages or sentences to my pages. today I want you to follow your hearts! It can be in a little thing or a large thing, just listen to it… This page also fits Valentine’s Day although it’s primarily about you and not someone else, but I think loving yourself is just as important! I started the background for this double spread with a tissue paper. Then I added some heart cards from patterned paper that I had in my stash. I wanted the page to have vibrant colors especially red. So I added Inka Gold in esd color all around the page creating a frame. I used a homemade stencil I created from white cardstock to create the hearts pattern with color sprays. To sharpen …

It's the little things…

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and you can already feel love is in the air! I know pink is a traditional valentine’s color even though it’s my least favorite color (other than yellow) I decided to challenge myself. I matched the grey with the pink, to tone it down a little bit and also added a white tulle to soften it some more.   All the different parts in this card were cut with Spellbinders die cuts and embossed with Cuttlebug embossing dies. I almost forgot how much fun that is!   Have fun creating! Einat
