How A Heart Flutters (Smitten Class)

Nancy Maxwell James creates artwork that always touches the heart with her use of images, text and vintage pieces.  Nancy’s adorably named on-line class, “Smitten”, started on 14th January. This is the first time I have joined an on-line class and I was apprehensive which was silly as friends were also participating – Chris, Marie and Terry. Nancy has created a most beautiful site where she shares her tutorials and we can share our art.
The first project is an altered tag.
Normally my choice of colour would be towards the rose pinks but I had this collage sheet from Gaby and I knew the colours would work well with the Ella Blue papers I have.
The key is vintage. Not entirely sure how old it is but it is very old.
