I started the page in my usual way - I put a layer of gesso. Next I took my new Heidi Swap stencil and used Dry Dex Spackle for some texture.
Now to add some color. I started by using some Distress Inks.
Then a layer of acrylic paint -
I added some Ranger Embossing Dabber through the stencil and then some Silver Embossing Powder and some Red Embossing Foil. I heated them up.
My finishing touches were to add the scripture. I used stickers for the words Faith, Hop and Love and Grungeboard for the last word Love. Everything else was done with Pitt pen. I was having trouble getting the stickers to stay on the glittery embossing powders so I topped it with a layer of Matte Mod Podge. A lot of the dimension seemed lost so I outlined a lot of the hearts with my black Pitt pen too!
Here it is:
