ScrapbookSteals and How To-sday is so much fun. We get to share interesting, new, creative and also easy things with you. Today I am starting a project with a $2.00 board from the misc. crafty stores. It has a heart cut out for a photo. I thought it would be fun to decorate with all the great mixed mediums we have today. .. to play and get messy. So first I applied a coat of gesso to the base. Then using dollar store stencils I used gesso mixed with paint to mask the images.

Today I have a video tutorial how to make a flower I call Quarter Fold Flower. I will be adding this to my project.

This homemade floral is perfect in the cluster of gesso masking florals and the metal and sticker florals. I added lots of stickles and glossy accents.
