Two Hearts Become One

Hi folks!  Glad you stopped by today!  It's Tuesday Throwdown time and this week we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and our challenge is use paints or mists.  Now this was definitely a challenge for me!  I've NEVER used paints and I don't even own any spray mists!  But....about a year ago I was blessed with a TON of craft supplies from a girl who's mother had passed away and she had been an avid crafter.  In those supplies were several bottles of acrylic paint.  I put them in a drawer and wondered what I would ever do with them or if they were even dried out.  So I pulled them out.  First I tried splattering the paint to make a background sheet...didn't work.  Then I tried "stippling".....nope.  Then I remembered reading about someone making their own spray mists, so I thought I'd give that a try.  I used a purple metallic paint and just added a little water and spritzed it onto a sheet of paper.  It made a really pretty, shimmery, lavender background paper!  Whew!

I used Robyn's Fetish "Hibiscus Valentine", printed twice and colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  I hand cut the top image and mounted it over the second image with pop dots (2 hearts become one...get it? LOL)  I then layered that onto a scrap piece of lavender satin paper, then put that onto the background piece I made.  After I had it all put together I spritzed it again with the homemade mist.  

It actually came out pretty good!  And I stepped out of my box a little bit more, too!  I think that's the point of these challenges, isn't it?  

So now head on over to Tuesday Throwdown and check out all the great inspiration, then join us!  

Thanks for stopping in today!
