D-lish Scraps February

This month was the first time ever that I didn't have
a picture in my head of what I wanted to create
for my monthly DT share.

I sat at my desk staring at all the inspiration but was lost
for where to start.

I was running short on time and just didn't have a clue.
Then I started stressing.
Then time started moving.
Then I got distracted.

Over next to a set of drawers was a stack of papers with
lots of throw away pages which I had sprayed 
and discarded because they didn't turn out how I wanted.

Three particularly stood out for me, one I will share tomorrow 
but the other two have been used on todays page.

And I have to say, I'm a little bit happy that they hadn't made it
to the rubbish yet.

I cut my title on one of the pages and cut it down to about five inches.
Stuck it down with a little glue and sewing and I love the look.
The pink heart was cut from the other half.

I used the fabulous Scrap FX Heart Confetti stencil
to add to my background.

I took a couple of Manilla Shipping Tags, painted them with gesso and sprayed them in colours to match my page and finished them off with some gorgeous twine.

My photo has been mounted on chipboard for dimension and then adhered to a white doily with the tags slipped under.

Under the bottom is a super cute puffy border that came 
with the Pinkfresh Studio kit.

I have also used some cute Wood Veneer Hearts, a Mini Wooden Peg,
some resin flowers, and a flair from the PS I Love You set.

Up the top corner I have used a Pinkfresh Studio Enamel Label Frame and
placed a Sequin Bow inside this.

It's really hard to see here but I spread some gesso around the edges
of my bow and a little on top.  It's given it a bit of a worn look
and I love how it turned out.

Thanks heaps for looking.

I'll be back tomorrow with my other salvaged page.
