Hey Creatives! Susan brings together this beautiful page!
What Susan had to say:
As many of you know I just love using Rita’s die cuts and this project is no exception. It is getting close to Valentine’s day I am in the mood for hearts! For this project, I pulled out the Be True die cut set to use the heart and flower pieces.
This mixed media page started with a collage background using various pieces of paper from my stash. Rita’s ‘Making Waves’ Art Foamie stamp makes a special background paper. Add Folk Art acrylic paint to the stamp in colors that matched the die cuts. Such a gorgeous background that enhances the heart and the flowers!
Follow Your Heart Project by Susan Hiles
Can you tell what I did with the flower die cut? I cut it in half to spread the beauty of those flowers around the page. Half of the flower is at the top of the page — a little bit under the Love banners. Then, I place the other half on the bottom so that the flowers are everywhere!!!!
It’s always good to think outside the box. If there is something you would like to use on your page but does not fit the way you would like it to, try to figure out a way to make it work. In this case, simply cut the die in half. I love it!!!!!!
To help make the heart die cut pop off the page even more, place a strip of orange fabric behind it. That draws your eye to that die cut making that the focal piece on the page. It is nice to have a focal piece on a page. I like to have pieces of interest around the page that draws your eye from corner to corner. On top, add Mod Podge with glitter and some bling. The page is super sparkly, and I’m loving it!
Personally. the scripture verse is what makes this page all come together. It talks about knowing God and serving Him with our whole heart. 1 Chronicles 28:9 worship and serve Him with your whole heart…
