Last week, I have a gift that I need to make for my friend where we every year exchange gifts at Christmas time. Of course, it's late in the making part due to illness in family and holiday. My mojo just wasn't working for past two months to come up with anything for her.
While I was browsing, I came across two valentine subway arts that I like and download:
here is links for them:
Valentine Subway-Call me
Valentine's Day subway art
My original plan was to use these two subway arts in one frame then after that I need to figure out what else I want to do.. so back to searching on pinterest--nothing really stand out to me.. then I decide to take a break and went to google readers to read couple blogs to catch up on what's new and stuff and came across
Nichol Magouirk's post: Top ten cards/projects of 2012-her valentine hearts and tags. then something just click..
so first I printed out the subway arts on Stampin' up White cardstock -- 8x10 size to 5x7 prints
Then I look at subway arts to decide on my colors--red, pink, black, and white.
I went through my red color box and pick out all kinds of embellishment that i might use then I went through my valentine theme folder that holds more and add them to mix.
then I decide to pick my solid cardstocks for the background and choose these..
I trim the subway arts down then mat them to black cardstock then decide on my main background colors.
Pink for one, and dark red for other..
then i stopped here for night as it was almost 10pm and need to get to bed..
Earlier today, I find my third subway art that match the color scheme to add to the collage-
I decided to use the other half of dark red ..then it need something to tie all three together, so i went through my valentine theme paper holders and ...
I pull out my stamps and few other items to add...
then this is where I stopped as it was getting late..
Come back tomorrow for the rest of my process and finish pieces...
