I can't believe how much scrapbooking I've been doing lately. I love the colors of this page. It reminds me of a cool summer day. I did some sewing on the background to add texture. I wanted to add some Gel Medium with the stencils, but it was all dried up! And because of the strange times we are in, I wasn't going to be able to drive down (it's a literal down because I live on a plateau and Michaels is at the bottom lol) to the store to get some. I did order some online, but who knows how long it will take to get here. Anyways, I used some white gouache paint instead. It's not as shiny and opaque looking as I wanted, but it works.
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!
