Love is ...

I decided to start an 8"x8" Ranger Dylusions Creative Journal that I bought ages ago.
This journal is big !
I should have realised that a full spread would be 16"x 8" 😏

It seemed like a lot of background to cover but I thought I would try some Distress Oxide inks to do it. I chose 2 colours - Peeled Paint and Salty Ocean and went ahead with a blending tool.This is the first time I had used these inks and a spritz of water creates a lovely painterly effect on it.
I found a lacey stamp to edge the pages and a matching doilie stamp for some other random stamping.
I also added some little stencilled hearts using Oxide ink again this time in Worn Lipstick.

The girl and bunny are from Santoros Kori Kumi paper pack - they are such a cute pair !
The floating hearts are cut from the same paper pack and finally I painted the wooden 'Love' sentiment to match the hearts.

Wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day and hope you get to spend at least some of it with someone you love.



  1. Hello Carolyn,
    That is beautiful. I love that bunny.
    Happy Valentine's day.
    Big hug

  2. Hi Carolyn,
    Hope you had a happy one, I did . . . though I had my pressie given to me early. :)

    Love what you've made here, the background is blended beautifully. I always get a kick out of your art and this one is really cute.

  3. Thank you !
    Lovely comments from you all ^_^ xx
