The close up of one of the clusters. I painted the "smile arrow" with gesso and then covered it in silver embossing powder and melted it with the heat gun. I love this embossed Bazzill...wish I can get my hand on more of this.
Another cute little banner cluster...I also brought in touches of silver with the little brads.
I hand stitched the edges of the journal pocket and added another little flower cluster and the title to it. The chipboard heart border was also first painted with gesso and then covered in silver embossing powder and melted.
