Valentines with DecoArt at Altered Pages



First, let me tell you, PRINT PARTY--when you need a stack of backgrounds, there's nothing better than pulling a bunch of monotype prints from a Gelli plate, and the 5x7 size is perfect for card making  For these, I used a mix of DecoArt paints, mostly from the Americana line, a little spritzing from DecoArt media misters, and I'll be adding some glittery touches using Glamour Dust paints, as well.
Would you like to see some of the prints?  (Just say yes, I'm going to post them anyway!)


Don't want to make your own backgrounds?  No problem--just choose one of the many Collage Backgrounds from Altered Pages.  Altered Pages also has a great collection of vintage Valentine images, not to mention lots of rich German Scrap (gotta love the hearts), all perfect for creating lovely, personalized Valentines.
Don't want to have to plan what you need?  Grab this Valentine KIT--lots of fun supplies!

PS--don't forget, Miss Jean says:  "YES, we will have a giveaway of DecoArt Products and a very useful Brayer from AlteredPages.   (total value $35.00)  We ask that you share our blog posts on YOUR social media pages/sites to be eligible.    Comment here and let us know where you posted!   Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin, google+ !
