"Love" Monochromatic with My Minds Eye

"Photo" removed - it will be featured in Ready, Set, Create Magazine Feb/March 2011.

Monochromatic Valentine layout with My Minds Eye. I fussy cut the flowers out of the one of the sheets of paper and add Tim Holtz Rock Candy to give the flowers a distressed look plus it makes them firm and easier to work with. I placed brads and buttons in the center of them for added detail.
If you have a sewing machine try sewing on your pages; I did around the rose and dot 6 x 8 piece of paper and if you don't try sewing by hand using a paper piercer and some embroidery floss. It is so easy to do and gives great dimension to your projects
.If you can believe it I also fussy cut the letters "LOVE" from one of the sheets of paper. I love fussy cutting but remember you need a really good pair of scissors.
Of course a page isn't complete without a little bling, so I add some of Valentine Crafts Glitter Heart Brads and some stick pins from Making Memories for add accents
