Wendy Vecchi February Challenge

Hi there. It has been a while since I have had time to play. I am still busy since Mother passed away going through her things and my Grandmothers things she did not have the health to deal with.
I found some old patterns of my Grandmothers and decided to put them to use. I do not sew. I never had the time to learn being a single mom..and the crafts I did was decided now that I love to make journals they would be fun to use for textures and images.
The theme is hearts and sadly I am out of paste..this would have looked so much better.
The stamps are from Wendy Vecchi and you can find them at
The hearts from Wendy Vecchi stencils...again you can find them at

Here is a short of how I made this.
This is the pattern I picked from her many many patterns. I scanned it and sized it smaller, printed and cut the images.

I am using the smaller Dylusion Journal. This took four pages.
The middle two I cut 1 inch off the edges.
The back pages I painted with Black acrylic paint. When it was dry I used the background stamp with the flowers and some new paint I just purchased from a friend. It is heavy body acrylic paint by Dina Wakley, Magenta.Marilyn Hughes, who also runs Art Anthology...which is new to me..but I had popped in a few times before meeting Marilyn on Face Book and I totally impressed.Thank you Marilyn!!!!
The stamp set is one of my favorites Art colors Life, designed by Wendy Vecchi and you can find at the link above.
I used adhesive tape to form pockets. The tape is from Fun Stampers Journey.
I fussy cut the little lady in pink placing her on the right side and used parts of the pattern to hide the dismemberment lol on the left.
I used Dina Wakleys gel medium and gesso and mod podge.
Hope you like the finished project.
Must get back to working on the estate sell now.
