Art from the Heart's blog hop


Welcome to a very exciting blog hop in Celebration of 10 years of Art from the Heart!


Lots of exciting things happening at Art from the Heart next weekend where the big birthday bash is happening. Want to know more then do click here

So in Celebration we are having 5 birthday blog hops.
You should have reached my blog from here and you are on the 7 Gypsies hop

Here is my project




I used
7 Gypsies paper from the Lille collection, Crazy Love, Life is Good and Abundance.
Steam Punk clear stamps and Victoriana rubbings.

 The background is made from card painted with acrylic ink.
I stuck the papers to coasters, trimmed and then edged them with walnut ink before adding them to the background. The whole thing was then decorated with the stamps and rubbings. The sentiment is made from a very old die cut alphabet I got free with a magazine, that I inked in black.
 The Art from the Heart was made by drawing a heart shape in card covering it with scraps of paper and adding the ART letters through it on pieces of acetate.
If you look close you will see I included a party hat, balloon and game. 


Before you move on - you will need to collect a letter from me
 which is P
This is part of an anagram of a 7 Gypsies product
Once you get back to Dys blog please email your answer to Ben.

So after leaving me a comment you need to move on to

Have fun hopping!
