Love Mends, Heals, Saves


There is a new challenge in town.... ok, it's been around for a few weeks, but since it's a monthly challenge it's still the very first one.  It is the Make ART Challenge featuring Art by Wendy Vecchi.  The first challenge is to use Embossing Paste on your project and I'm just getting in under the wire.  The only other rule each month is to use at least one Wendy Vecchi product.  

Be sure and pop over to the challenge site to check out Wendy's project along with it's directions.

I started with the heart and really thought I was going a different direction with this but wound up making an art journal page.  This book is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  The heart and also the word love are Wendy Vecchi Art Parts.  On the heart I first used Wendy's black paste and let dry.  Over that I used the crackle paste, applied rather thick on some it and let that dry.  I then used my finger to add an area of white paste to symbolize the cracks starting to mend.  After that was dried I sprayed on some Distress, blotted and dried it and then decided to just sponge on some of Wendy's Archival Ink red geranium.  I sponged the whole heart, dried it, and then sponged on another layer and dried it.  I dabbed white paint on the top of the word love, dried it and then used my finger to dab Wendy's gold embossing paste over it.  I also added some of the gold embossing paste around the edges of the heart.  When love was dry I dabbed on another layer of gold and dried it.  I tied white ribbon around the heart and glued on love.  The words Mends, Heals, and Saves are made with a dymo label maker (I haven't had that out in awhile).  For the background I just sprayed on a big of Distress stain spray, inked around the edges with Distress Ink and wrote out the scripture.  There is also some shading around the heart.

The journal page is awesome. That is the first Bible verse that I ever memorized and it is still my favorite. Thanks for using it on this page with the heart.
