For the Love of Mixed Media Blog Hop

Today I am joining some of my crafty friends for a mixed media blog hop- Valentine's themed! 

The challenge was just to create a mixed media piece, it could be any type of project so long as it was inspired by Valentines. I love joining in on collaborations like this.

As you can see, mine is a mixed media journal! I cut all of my papers and chipboard covers into heart shapes using my Brother Scan N Cut, and bound it using my bind it all.

I layered strips of gelli prints onto my chipboard covers, stitched them down and then added a couple of light swipes of paints on top.

I used some of Imagine Crafts "Amplify" ink to draw the white puffy circles, and adhered on a couple of resin embellishments.

You can see other projects from the blog hop by hopping from blog to blog. There isn't a specific order to hop in. You're free to hop around and enjoy at out own whim.

Thanks for stopping by! Wouldn't this make the cutest Valentine gift for a friend?
