I cut out a heart from some plain cardstock, and covered it in wet glue. I then randomly stuck down some small red flowers until the whole shape was covered. When it was dry, I spritzed it lightly with brown glimermist to tone down the brighter red shades. Lastly I added some brown pearls and gems to some of the flower centers.
I wanted to give my page balance by having some of the grey colour (see the gate shape below) in my title. I used some raw chipboard letters and very gently dabbed an old black inkpad onto the letters I needed until they were the shade I wanted.
