Love is in the air!

Hello blog land, I hope I find you all well today. I have been getting messy and I LOVE the results. I had so much fun making this I really felt creative and I hope you like it half as much as I do.

I am really hoping Hubby and I can get to Paris this year so I am doing lots of things that remind me of France. Here is the first close up. The back ground, I hope you notice is a French book (I bought from a second had book shop) for a £1 I tore strips up then got some PVA glue added some water and started to paste it on this lovely canvass from Crafty Individuals.

The gold items are from a pkt of buttons I thought they went really well with the French theme. I stamped some images with Tim Holtz (TH) distress ink (DI) then embossed with some more gold EP on top of the tea DI only in highlighted places, to give a haphazard look.

There has been lots of distressing done to the papers with the DI. Some chip board that I no longer recognize have been altered beyond all description lol

I do hope you like this I have decided to enter it for a challenge with BTC & G whose theme this month is LOVE. Also the Allsorts challenge is destress with buttons & bow , the gold items are buttons (although not a typical ones) and bow well my handsome fello is wearing one will that count? I don't know I hope so, as I forgot to put my burgandy little bow in the corner B4 photographing. Simon Says theme is also LOVE. Speaking of loveTuesday Taggers is also love is all around, so I am popping this into there challenge too! Also I am sure there are lots more challenges I could enter this in for as love is a great theme but this will have to do. Thank you for looking. Love Dawn xx
