Valentine in October???

It would seem that way LOL! Actually, my sweet friends Annika and Astrid and me had a nicve craft evening yesterdag and Annika thought a challenge might be nice. She thought of the colour red, Astrid added the idea of using hearts and I felt some glitter was in order. So there you are; Valentine's day!!
I tried something new for the background; I sprayed some Glimmer Mist silver and Grey and Black Dylusions on a gelli plate and layed my paper on it. Love the effect, it's totally different from spraying on your paper. Then I made the fishbone with a stencil and black gesso around the pages. I doodled a little here and there. Then I made the small glitter hearts with a stencil my sweet friend Astrid made for me and Viva Glitter Gel Hematit. I used a red Molotov Marker to edge the hearts and let one heart on each page stand out by using some Stickles.
The large hearts were made with an ancient Sizzlit Die set in multiple layers. Two of the hearts were embossed using embossing powder, one with ultra fine Flower Soft and one with Liquitex liquid ink.
At the top of one of the hearts on each page I added some red glitter parts en a sort of heap. Around the hearts I made a shading with a black carbon pencil.
I stamped tiny hearts all over the page, and on the left page made a few of them dimensional and shiny with a red Viva Pearl pen. With white Liquitex liquid ink I made splatters on the pages and with Black Soot Distress ink I distressed the pages on the edge.
Love the way this spread turned out. Hearts are cool, even in October LOL!! Have a great day, hugs Frea
