Let The Story Begin

Romance is starting to fill the air as thoughts turn from Christmas towards Valentine’s Day. With that in mind, I created this hanging with a sense of old style romance using Divas D’Este’s J’adore. I’ve previously dipped into this collage sheet (CS) for DT artwork and happy to return to it once again.Printing onto a transparency allowed me to layer this image onto another Divas D’Este CS, this time French Script.
The script shows through beautifully, especially on their faces.  I always keep this sheet to hand as it is useful to have, adding bits here and there, as I did with tucking it slightly beneath the image.This beautiful stamp of a bundle of letters is from Oxford Impressions’ Season of Giving plate,  a Christmas set of stamps but so useful to dip into throughout the year. Tying it with pink satin ribbon adds a special touch then the postal mark from another O.I. set, this time Art of Being Beautiful. This is a story about love, that particular stamp is from the A Scandalous Beauty plate. Is this  Chapter 1 of a sweeping epic of love spanning decades or a bittersweet novella? I’ll let you be the author of their story of love.

    Hi dear Lynne,
    Love the 1920 look , and all you used in your background- so many sweet adds- and the transparency sheet showing the schript, gives it a fabolous look- and OH I love your rose coloured touches – that is romance.
    Warm hugs from a cold evening.

    Ooooh, oooh.. Love Stories, so fun! I love this piece and especially the way the lettering goes over their faces. I never would have thought of that and it is so unique! It makes me wonder…is the writing what they are thinking during their kiss or their love played out in its own story? Very mysterious and intriguing! The colors you chose are beautiful and add to the mystery perfectly. Excellent job!
