SO MANY OF MY SMILES BEGIN WITH YOU

This layout was created for The Crafty Scrapper design team. What a treat it was working with all the Maya Road and Bo Bunny products! The Maya Road tin heart, below, was painted with gesso before outlining the scallop with another favorite of mine, Snow Writer by Deco Art. 
SUPPLIES USED:

Bo Bunny Press, C'est la Vie Collection
DecoArt Snow Writer
Fancy Pants Designs stamp
Inkadinkado stamp
Kaiser Craft ribbon
Liquitex modeling paste
Martha Stewart punch
Maya Road butterflies, birdcage, velvet flowers,
      large heart
October Afternoon stickers
Petaloo paper flowers
Pink Paislee Artisan Elements
Prima zipper, resin bird, stencil
Ranger ink
Ranger, Claudine Hellmuth Gesso
Spell Binders die cut
Tim Holtz stickers and Vagabond 
The stencil and modeling paste work can be seen in the upper left corner here. 

I enjoyed working with the Maya Road metallic  and canvas butterflies. It was so easy to apply a layer of gesso to the metal butterflies to achieve a shabby chic look! For the canvas butterfly I stamped and inked it, then used wire to create the body and antennae.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE!!!
