10 things i love about you


welcome back gypsies! 
i got a chance to explore my softer, more pastel side recently and i have to say i liked it! the challenge? turn a box of flowery pastel papers and a frame into something memorable. so in the spirit of advent calendars, i created this sweet little way to count up the many ways i love a certain someone. 


the whole frame is painted, first with copper, then picket fence crackle, and then tinted with tumbled glass distress ink to create a patina. then came the flowers - fabric ones, paper ones, and my signature smooshie ones too. corrugated cardboard scraps get a facelift thanks to glimmer mists in turquoise and copper.


10 tiny pockets dressed with pearls, crystals and ribbon. 
each tiny pocket holds a tiny card - 10 tiny places to hide secrets, love notes or tokens.

i hope this romantic fancy strikes your fancy! 
i'll be teaching this as a class at scrapbook island in san jose (408.978.8900) on april 15th.
