My Little Love Notes!

This week, I wanted to make an art journal page with the topic of Love Notes. Every time I thought about the topic, I just kept coming back to the idea that my girls, my babies, are my love notes. But I am always quite challenged when it comes to putting 'real' photos into my art. I never seem to get them to match or sit right, if that makes sense. But tonight, I think I got it! I managed to mix my love of going crazy with art supplies with my wish to be able to scrapbook! 

I started out with Dylusions, a stencil and a stamp. 

Then I found some cute paper, a little bit of textured ribbon and one of my favorite pics of my girls!  (Actually, this is the picture that I took for my Christmas cards this year, they just never got sent out!)

A couple of weeks ago, I made some heart embellishments out of modeling paste and gelatos.  I had a few left but they were the wrong color for this page.  So I took a brush, dipped it into the Dylusions and 'painted' the hearts to match! Yummy fun!

I added a Wendy Vecchi Square Frame Art Part Piece.  I inked it and added some little white hearts with a stamp.

And there, I have a scrapbook page in my art journal!!  I can't believe it!!  (Now, we are going to have a winter weather event here in Atlanta, again, and I can't believe that either!! But I hope to use the time to add more pics into the art!!)  
Thank you for stopping by the Eclectic Paperie blog today ... let me know any tips you have for incorporating your pics into your art journals - I am determined to do this again!!

(PS. If you want to know more about the modeling paste hearts, be sure to stop by my blog! It was a really long post!!)
