All about Love

Hello!  Happy belated Valentine's day!  I am posting about love today for the Funkie Junkie Boutique Inspiration Ave. 

I have the wonderful Tim Holtz Sizzix Stacked Tiles Hearts dies  and they were the inspiration for my art this time.

The inspiration was from over 30 hearts cut from white cardstock.  They were all cut out and then spritzed with a mix of pink, yellow, and cranberry mica stain sprays. 

They originally were sprayed a few at a time with different colors.  But then I thought wouldn't it be fun if I created a background by layering them onto a sheet of cardstock and spraying layers of colors.

That ended up looking like this.  Then I decided to add another layer of texture and used the Valentine's stencil and opaque distress paste to randomly apply words across the surface.  

After that dried, I laid the stencil back over the words and sponged with red distress ink over the letters.

I enjoyed using the hearts in a different way so I created a background using the dies as a mask and overlapped them on each other on a sheet of mixed media paper. 

I spritzed over the dies and captured the layered hearts on the background.  Before cleaning the inky spray off of the dies I laid another sheet of mixed media cardstock on top of the dies and picked up the reverse hearts.

After that I took some of the hearts and used another stencil to add a layer of opaque stars randomly over the hearts.  I let the past dry completely and then used the stencil again to sponge on the contrasting ink colors over the stars to make them pop. 

Using the hearts with various other pieces a few different Valentines cards were created.
Happy Hearts Day to you!
