Happy Valentine's Day


Kathleen here sharing a mixed media layout with you featuring 7 Dots Studio Domestic Goddess papers and Helmar's Crystal Kote Fixative.

Happy Valentine's Days everyone!  Today I am sharing with you a layout of my two special valentines, my daughters.  This photo shows their very distinctive personalities!
I did not want to loose the color or design of this paper by applying gesso.  I also didn't have any clear gesso but I did have Helmar's Crystal Kote Fixative.  I gave both sides of the paper a good spray.  Now the paper is ready to take on the paints without soaking into the paper.
For this layout I choose7 Dots Studio Domestic Goddess-Ah, Whatever paper.
for the base and layered in cards and tags from the 7Dots Studio Domestic Goddess-Collage-Fashionista and Domestic Goddess-Tags 12x12.
I applied some red model paste using the 7 Dots Studio Soul Mates- Squares mask.

Helmar Zapdots black round 1/4 inch were the perfect size and strength to adhere these gears in place. 

Helmar Acid Free Glue was the perfect medium to adhere this decorate pair of scissors and all of these copper beads in the bottle cap spilling out and down the page. This Acid Free glue gives me just enough wiggle room time to place my letters in just the right position as they cascade down the side of the picture.

For the chipboard piece I gave them all a nice coat of Lindy's Stamp Gang Tibetan Poppy Teal then using a paint brush I dipped it in Lindy's Stamp Gang Incandescent Copper and randomly accented each piece.

After all of my pieces were in place I came back and highlighted it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Tibetan Poppy Teal and did a bit of stamping
