My heart, my love

The month of love isn’t quite over yet, so I have another ‘love’ project to share today!

I asked Lori to have a big heart cut for me as the backing of this project, it measures at the largest points 8×8.  Such a fun piece to work with, and I believe she may be selling these in the store, if not yet at some point.

I used our wedding colours for this project, navy blue, white & silver.  Actually the little blue flowers are leftovers from our wedding cake that my Mom made!

All these LIITD Laser Cut chipboard pieces from the January release were the inspiration for my project.  They are so perfect and reflect exactly what Mike and I were feeling all those years ago on our wedding day.

And yes those fluttery hearts still beat inside us today ;)

To start this piece I added some texture paste using stencils and a pallet knife to the background.  I wanted to raise the photo up as well so using some Prima molds I created a fun backdrop, with the pieces just peeking out.  I actually used hot glue to create the molded pieces, worked like a charm!!

Next everything got a layer of black gesso, then I dry brushed on Finnabair Deep Waters Metallique paint.  Oh I’m a little addicted to these paints!

For extra highlights on the texture I used Finnabair Old Silver Metallique wax.  The chipboard was also coloured using Finnabair paints, the pictures really don’t do them justice!

Lots of flowers, lots of splatters and mostly a whole lot of love went into this project!!

It’s Frosty Out There!

I don’t know about where you are but it is FREEZING here! Perfect weather though to lock myself in my craft space and have some fun!

If you haven’t heard the Online Store is back up with lots loaded already!!!

Also Lori has this adorable Snowman Kit available for pre-order, it’s custom designed and cut just for Love Is In The Details!

You can order it HERE.

Earlier this week a pizza box full of fun new goodies was waiting for me when I got home, including one of the Snowman kits!

It comes with all the MDF and papers you need to put it together…

Of course you could try something a little more adventurous, just set those papers  aside (don’t toss them though they can be used on another project).

As always I was up for more of a challenge, and wanted to make him unique so I pulled out lots of fun supplies and grunged him up!

I covered his body with Finnabair Platinum Crackle Paste, once it was dry I sprayed Walnut Distress Spray over top to get in all those little cracks and age him a bit more.

I ran the paper that came for the hat through my Bigshot using a gear embossing folder.  Then I rubbed different colours of Finnabair wax to bring out the texture!

The arms and scarf were covered in Distress Embossing powder…I LOVE the texture that embossing powder gives, and so sad you can’t buy it anymore.

I added a bunch of gears, using some of the custom LIITD laser cut chipboard and Tim Holtz gears.  Even used them for his eyes!

He was so fun to make, taking this great kit and making it my own!

Lori has re-opened this kit so hurry and order yours before they are all gone!
