Preparing For Valentine's Day - With Jennifer Snyder

Jennifer Snyder here today featuring a few of the new releases. 
 I am doing a little Valentine's Day preparation using some images from 
turn-of-the-century cards.   While the chipboard pieces have a Valentine theme
 on my page, they are perfect for projects all through the year.   Hearts are always fun to use. 

My pieces selected for this layout are 2Crafty :
"Leafy Twig Branches"
"Fancy Damask" 
"Beaded Heart Border"

Here is a photo of the  newly released, 2Crafty "Beaded Heart Border" in it's natural state. 
 I painted it bold red and then inked it lightly with vintage distress ink to give it a softer
 vintage appeal.  As a finishing touch, I rubbed some gold leaf wax rub on it for a gilded look.

Next I used the 2Crafty "Fancy Damask", also a new release.
 I kept this more simple and painted it gold.

My last chipboard used was 2Crafty "Leafy Twig Branches".  These were painted with a few different colors in a sort of mottled fashion using yellow, brown and olive paints. 

Thanks so much for visiting.
