It is Hearts and Swirls week this week over at the Tando blog so I dug out my Dear Lizzy papers and had a go at a heart filled page. I started with the Tando heart mask and used 3 different colours of chalk ink, I then hand cut loads of hearts, stuck and stitched some of them down as a background, next layering up a doily and some flowers adding my photo to the middle. I painted a Tando heart shaped button and then spritzed it with yellow mist, adding a pin behind and some twine to it, and then my journalling underneath. I used an old Brenda Pinnick acetate style alpha for the word love and then my trusty pack of multicoloured simple stories alphabets.
The photo is a phone photo taken underneath the Cutty Sark on one of our holiday days out...I had a bit of a play with some of the photo effects and played with over exposing the photo and adding some blue...but I love this shot of us all together.
