Inspiration With Athanasia

You+Me=Big Love

Hello 2Crafty friends!
In a couple of days we will be celebrating Valentine's Day, so I wanted to make
 something with a LOVE mood :)

Before we start...
Please remember while you are here  to become a blog follower & leave a blog comment to
be eligible to go in our monthly draw for a great chippie prize pack.

This layout represents a big love, indestructible in time.
First thing I do to start building a layout is to place the photo and the basic elements,
 and these are the chipboard pieces.
Here is how my page looked before adding more embellishments and painting...

 I used three Polaroid Assortment Frames which I absolutely adore! They look so
 beautiful in the clusters and they come in different sizes, how cool is that?. 
All chipboard pieces were the inspiration for this layout, even the small Asst Arrow.
  I love how it stands there and points to the main composition.

To paint all the chipboard pieces I used silks and H2Os Twinkling watercolors.
It is really a quick process to paint all these before gluing them down -
 the chipboard sucks the color and they dry in no time!

For the cluster in the picture bellow I used four different chipboard pieces,
Two Polaroid Assortment Frames, the word Precious and a small Hedgehog
  (how cute is that??? ) 
I love how they look one above the other!

This journal page turned to be one of my favorites in my journal 
because of this amazing Aidan's Arrow.
As I was looking in my stash I saw it and that was it!
It was like a vision with this arrow standing on some big circles, 
don't ask why and how ...

I created this page immediately after the layout -yeap, that was a really creative day for me :)
I used the same color shades I used on the layout above, as well one more
 Polaroid Assortment Frame. These frames are so cute that I just can't
 have enough! In order to alter the chipboard pieces I used  warm grey Silk and 
primary elements to create more texture on them.

 The ATC Tiny Heart is like the icing on the cake: cute and delicious! 
I love how it looks on my beloved arrow :)
I painted it with H2Os watercolors purple and spiced pumpkin.
