I'm on a major fall kick right now. I just love all these fall photos and colors. This is my layout for the Memory Nest's make it Monday and the colors remind me so much of maple trees. I just love their golden and orange hues. I made the background with stamps and then covered in gesso. Once that dried, I used gelatos in my favorite yellow and orange hues. I spritz some water to make it drip. Then I painted the circles in more of my favorite colors. I'm really happy with how vivid this became.
Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own. So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!
