Forever Valentine by Tracey Sabella

Welcome everyone!!
It's Tracey here to share my latest project featuring gorgeous ScrapBerry's products. 

I've been sharing my excitement of becoming a grandmother for the first time through my ScrapBerry's projects. Recently our son and lovely daughter-in-law revealed the name they've given our coming granddaughter ~ Avery. I've created this heart wall hanging for her. It's her first Valentine from me, a "Forever Valentine." I hope she'll be reminded of my love for her as she grows up seeing it hanging on her wall. 

"Forever Valentine"
I've featured the gorgeous Juliet Paper Collection and have embellished with fabulous ScrapBerry's flowers, polymer items, chipboard, and crystal flourish.

A delightful mix of ScrapBerry's flowers and embellishments.

The edge of the heart was painted with white gesso, then a stenciled design was added with molding paste. I highlighted the texture by rubbing lightly with ink.

 Here you can see more of the resins and the darling bottle cap.

A little handcrafted heart I created from corrugated cardboard.

A banner with Avery's name across the top of the heart. I simply cut triangles of Juliet paper and inked the edges to form the banner. The wooden letters from my stash were colored with ink and spritzed with a glitter spray for some sweet girly sparkle.

A dear friend gave me this wood heart, and I knew right away that it would be perfect for creating a Forever Valentine for Avery. I traced and cut out the heart onto the Juliet paper, then used gel medium to adhere it to the wood heart. I rolled over it firmly with a brayer to make sure the paper was securely adhered, then set it aside dry for a few minutes. Once the paper was set in place, but the gel medium was still damp, I cut into the wood grooves to show the slats, then used a sanding block lightly over the paper to reveal the wood grain below. I adore the texture this created on the background.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your ScrapBerry's products
and create a Valentine for someone special in your life.
