2010 - Bliss

Sketchy Thursdays is doing another Guest Designer call - so here's my submission for their fantastic sketch!

The rules were:
Use a heart somewhere (CHECK)
There's a giant vintage heart on top of the black square

Use red or pink (CHECK)

I actually used quite a bit of red, but I love these rolled up pieces of paper. other red used: the stitching on my vintage heart, one tiny red butterfly, the backing of my photos, and small red gems

Add journaling (CHECK)

I hid my journaling as a folded tag behind the main photo.

Products used: Paper by EP and other random companies, Cosmo Cricket rubon, distress ink, distress powder, tag, Art Blanche chipboard, old book, lost and found charms, thread, hot glue, diamond glaze, blending tool, sewing machine, metal ruler, KnCO black gem, raffia and recycled crimped cardboard.
