Follow your Heart

Remember those Grunge Paste hearts I made the other week and then couldn't peel them off the plastic backing because it was too stiff?  Well, they've been lying around the living room (craft room) ever since and I got sick of moving them... so I used them up on a journal page.

I started by using Bora Bora Fresco paint in the wrinkle free distress method, by puddling it with water to thin it on the craft mat and laying the journal on it, and then the same with Claret, drying in between and repeating to fill the page.  

 I glued the hearts onto some mesh and glued that to the journal page. The hearts had already been brushed with Treasure Gold (white fire)

I rummaged through my stamp drawers and found this one (by Paper Inspirations) and then edged the page with Vintage Photo distress ink to give it some definition.

They're really cool, Helen, and the mesh layer is great to make them pop against your fab background colours.
