Hey there ePers! It's Erin here with you today, and I'm cheating today and using my project today also pulling double duty as the Altered Challenge that the delightful and creative Sue Lelli created yesterday!
I wanted to do something outside the box, and I think I achieved it w/ this particular project!
I had such fun creating this Valentine themed project and turning this Christmas paper on it's side! When I was flipping through the Twelve Days stack (by Graphic 45; 8" x 8"), the couple dancing caught my eye, and that's where the idea started!
I realize that I'm stretching the "heart" theme w/ the two pears or hearts together, but oh well! It's art! What else can I say?! ;D
All I did was take pretty much one of each sheet and with my exacto knife, I cut out different elements.
The background paper was cut to size, and then I painted Matte Medium on top to give a smooth layer in which to adhere more layers.
The letters are a stencil that I have had forever. I added a layer to further make the letters jump out and not fade into the backgrounds.
Have a wonderful day and I hope that I have inspired you to look at your Christmas or any other paper you have, in a new and different light! The possibilities are endless!!!!
