I have had some wooden spools from Altered Pages sitting in my stash for a few months now and was wanting to use them so I came up with an idea of a Love Inspired Photo/Card Holder.
Which I thought would be perfect for keeping your loves ones close (well at least the thought of them).
This is a photo of my hubby and Marvin the Martian taken at a trip to Movie World on the Gold Coast almost twenty years ago. It always makes me smile when I see it.
Mounted behind the heart is a small clip and I have used a chipboard scroll corner to act as an easel like back to assist in holding the photo up.
Altered Pages Supplies Used:-
Glitz French Kiss Paper
Chipboard Scroll Corner
I forgot to take a shot from another angle, but other than my cupid, I have some red tissue paper and gold glittered hearts. My spool is covered by a piece of French Kiss Paper from Glitz and I have achieved the gold effect by simply buffing some Metallic Gold Gelato from Faber Castell across the spool and my other elements. This has given it a wonderful aged effect. A touch of Red Kindy Glitz was also added.
Challenges I am entering this into are:-
Anything But a Card - #12 Share the Love
Craft My Life - My All Crafts Challenge #4
UK Pan Pastels - #6 Love and Romance
Design Memory Craft - February Take the Challenge with Mou - Recreate Nostalgia. (Vintage Look Project that can hold old photos)
