Valentine's Day XL LOVE Tag by Guest Designer Heather Hudson

Hello Friends!! Heather here today and I am sooooo excited to be Guest Designing here at Gina's Designs!! I just love her chipboard pieces!! My first project of the month is my Valentine's Day XL LOVE Tag!!

Here are a couple close ups of my piece. You can see below one of the hinges I used.  I simply painted it with white gesso and then added some green to look like leaves. I also gave it a touch of blue for some depth.  My whole piece was covered with Clear Gel Tar from Golden Acrylics (you could use a gloss medium, in the same way).

I covered the Scribble Bird Frame in white gesso and then multiple colors of paint. I applied the gel tar and then doodled.  I decided to doodle on pretty much all of my tag pieces using a Pigma Black Micron Pen.

 As soon as I saw the brick sheet of Gina's, I knew I would be using some of the bricks for sentiment blocks...yummy!!  You can get a pretty good look at my doodling below.
I just love the typewriter letters in GOLD!!  The best part is that you can order the letters that you WANT...wooo no more letters you don't use...that go...hmmm...what can do with this??  LOL

Here are the links to all the fabulous pieces of chipboard I used:
