It's February and we're in the mood for love here at Scrap It With a Song! We've got a whole month of romantic tunes to add to the playlist
and spark some creativity in your scrapbook. First up we have......
"As Long As You Love Me" by Justin Bieber
You choose some aspect of the song/band to inspire your project (a word or
line from the lyrics, the title, band name, an image in the video -
pretty much anything - just be sure to let us know what inspired you if
it isn't obvious!)
I choose the words(Love Me) for my title
Secondly.......... I have entered this layout in.....
Here they challenge you to scrap about love but there's a little catch, you have to use at least 5 hearts on you layout!
I have definately got more that 5 hearts on my 'Love Me' page.....
and a close up....
When I printed out my photos of my Lovey Hasan, I was running low on ink so they have printed verragated with blues and green hues, they looked great on the page so I used them!
First up I splattered dark blue ink over white card stock, you can just see some in the upper page!
I used Impasto Medium, 4 shades of blue Acrylic paint and Tacky glue. I
mixed each color of the paint with impasto in little containers, I added
tacky glue as I wanted to make sure my heart cut outs would remain
The impasto paints was left over from another project.
I added the Impasto to my page from darkest to lightest, I
then added the heart cut outs on top and pushed them into the Impasto with pop
sticks, so the mixture would squeeze up around the heart cut outs. I left to dry overnight and then layered my photos and
embellies to the side. I also added the Impasto to the 'Love'and 'heart with the arrow' to give the page more dimension.
I also added the RED chevron button for that extra pop!
This looks fantastic in real life!
I have dated this page Feb 14th, for Valentines!
So Ladies if you would like to enter two great challenges this month head off to
I am 55yrs old. Yes! I'm an old chook!! lol I have three grown up children, two still live with me. Recently my partner 'Hasan' of 13 years passed away. I miss him so much, it's been a very sad time for me. I have been a Folk Art Painter for over 10 years and have dabbled in most Art forms from sewing, mosiacs, knitting, stamping, and all types of papercrafts etc..
