Hi everyone, Mou here with today's challenge! It's simple...it's almost Valentine's Day, only 3 days away, so in honor of heart day, use hearts in any way you like on any paper project!
Here's my take:
I punched out small hearts from Pie Tin, Berry Basket, Fresh Eggs, and Mason Jar papers from the Farm Girl collection, lay them in two columns on the Almanac paper and stitched them down the middle. I fluffed up the hearts a bit for dimension. Then created a cluster with photos, Mini Market Front Porch alpha stickers, Bowl of Cherries and tea Towel washi tapes, Farmyard Friends stamps, labels cut of Almanac paper, and some stickers from the Woodland Park collection. Then a little bit of paint and doodling later, my layout was complete. Here are some close-up shots.
Today, I have Michelle playing along with me. Look at her fluttering hearts cards!
Michelle says, "When I think of hearts, especially around Valentine's Day, I am instantly taken back to my grade school days of cutting out paper hearts for homemade Valentines. Sometimes, old school is still cool! Today I have some simple "fluttering hearts" that you can create with a piece of patterned paper and a pair of scissors. I simply used a paper heart doily to get the heart shape I wanted, then while the heart was folded in half I cut out concentric hearts. I used every other heart size on my two cards so that the paper doily showed through. After adding my embellishments, I slightly tipped the hearts up so that they were "fluttering" about. Perfect for Valentine's Day cards or any occasion by simply changing out the sentiment. All October Afternoon products are from the Farm Girl collection."
You can play along too! Please share your creations with us in our October Afternoon Flickr gallery. And a very Happy Valentine's Day to you all :)
