"You Make Me Smile~From The Heart"
12 x 12 Scrapbook Layout
I first started with the beautiful Cotswald Manor Collection~Splash of Color!
I added lots of texture with gesso/plaster mixture.... 
layers of the beautiful papers with cheese clothe..
and colored Petaloo flowers with Viva Colour~Inka Gold~Lava Red.

Flowing Heart
Heart Flourish
Loved the images on the Cotswald Manor Collection~Splash of Color I knew
I wanted to do fuzzy cutting with adding depth to the layout.
Father and Daughter tender moments 
from the heart...saying from paper collection.

Next up!
Is my "Forever Love" Card!
I decided to use the 
Swirling Love Birds

Started with a white card 6 1/2 x 5 size card base.
Die cut the image out of white card stock...
I added many layers of gesso with heat setting in between layers.
Using Viva Colour~Inka Gold~Lava Red I pounced the color onto the gesso layers!
Once dried I added touches of 
Viva Colour~ Transparent Perfect Pearl Pen~Clear
Texture with gesso and Viva Colour~Inka Gold~Lava Red 
with Dotted Fades stencil!
Distressed the edges of the amazing paper Cotswald Manor Collection~Splash of Color
Tucked in cheese clothe for even more texture....
Colored the Die~Namites Die cut and Petaloo~Printed Darjeeling Wild Blossoms with
Viva Colour~Inka Gold~Lava Red.
I also grabbed some of my Prima leaves I colored them with 
Viva Colour~Precious Metal Effect Paint~Gold, I love the vintage feel!!
I fuzzy cut out the images from the Cotswald Manor Collection~Splash of Color
Another look at my card....I just love the doves...with the pop of red!!
