No Act Of Love

No Act of Love

Sometimes, as I flip through my Journal, I find a page I've put "something" on, that is just sitting there waiting to be continued.  So it was with this page of pink stenciling with a white paper doily.

I had this vintage rose image in my collection that I thought was so lovely and would go well with the background.  It became the starting piece for the page.  I cut slits on each side of the rose's stem to feed the ribbon thru before tying the bow.

The soft and delicate diecut floral border has been waiting for months and months to find its home.  Its so, so feminine!

A little bit of Momento Soft Pink and "faux lettering" stamp added a little more interest to the background.

A $2.00  Love2 Foam Stamps set was a wonderful treasure to add to my page with its scrolls and open heart stamps. (Happy Scrappin.com webstore is closing and I took advantage of those close-out prices to get several stamps sets as well as Crafter's Workshop Templates and more.)   I finished off the open hearts with a white & gold pearl heart button and a pink & gold flower button.

The lovely, vintage lady was gifted to me, courtesy of Free Vintage Digi Stamps blog).  Behind her, I added a small bit of cheesecloth, which I tinted with my pink and white spray acrylics and then dried.

The stamped quote came from a Valentine's stamp set in Joann's (clearance aisle and priced at $1.97) and says:

No act of love, however small, is ever wasted.

    1. Thank you Sandy :-) I've adored Victoriana for oh gosh ... since the early 90's I guess. :-) Love many different things about the era ... and will focus on that instead of the icky parts, which were plentiful too. ,-) lol
