This layout was like pulling teeth.  It just did not want to come together even though I used lots of challenges for inspiration.   Black and white challenge at sb.com. I added glaze to the white paint for the glaze try it challenge . Also of the  monday challenge to use shapes at playground of memories.com.  I completely scraplifted the rolled paper heart from my very talented friend Kris.  Check out her blog at collage contessa.  She’s an amazing artist and alway has tons of inspiration on her blog.  I did lots of tearing and distressing.  Stamps are from Stamper’s anonymous and Pink Paislee.

Ok, I posted this and it made me realize that it just didn’t look right.  I replaced the top strips with a stamped phrase and it looks much better to me now.  I think the strips were crowding the hck out of the photo.

    Stealer of all rolled things! lol jk It looks absolutely adorable and I’m sure it took you no time at all. You should have seen me. I rolled each one exactly perfect around a straw, gel medium everywhere! Headache and a half. lol Feel free to steal anything you want, you make it look so much better.
