My goal in 2014 is to pull out some of the products I bought sometime ago and did not use.
Starting here with a layout of my Grand Daughter, I've used some Recollections glitter, pearls, tiny heart gems and even tinier clear seed beads. All glued down with Glossy Accents.
Another item bought and not used was a package of Cloth Stem Wire. This soft very flexible wire works well to create a twisted string effect, like I have done here to in-circle the photo. Also wrapped some around a skewer to give it that spring look or little wondering vines among the leaves look.
The lovely flowing clusters of leave on a branch are chipboard die cuts from Creative Embellishments. First I sprayed the bare chipboard with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist....Coffee Shop. Spraying this dark of a color on bare chipboard gave the chipboard a dark rich color. In the title "My Girl" the chipboard had first been painted white and then sprayed. If you look closely you can see the title is a lighter brown.
I plan to add a few words down in the right hand corner, but I haven't decided yet just what I want to journal. I'm really loving the way the new unused products came out on this layout. Now what else haven't I opened that I need to use???? Come back for my next project and see.
Thank you for coming by to take a look. If you would like to see a video showing more on this Layout go to... https://www.youtube.com/user/MooreArtFromTheHeart
Have a great day! Hugs and Smiles from Laurie Moore

This lovely Copper and Lace Heart is a gift for a very sweet friend. It hangs from a chain of pearly white trim and is finished with dangles of copper trinkets.
The beautiful chipboard words here are die cuts from Creative Embellishments along with the small white gears die cuts in and around the ribbons.
The dangles here started off as different colored trinkets so I painted them with copper paint to match the copper sheets at the top of the heart. I also added copper wire springs for that whimsical touch.
Here's the back view which I finished as well.
To buy the copper sheets, head over to my Artfire Store... http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/MooreArtFromTheHeart ..... and look under supplies.
Thank you for stopping by. Smiles and Hugs, Laurie

These chipboard die cut words are from Creative Embellishments Check out there store for more great products.
What's a mailbox with out love notes and a box for sweet chocolates. I've used the same papers and embellishments to help it coordinate with the mailbox.
Fun whimsical hearts on curly wire and a bright feathered humming bird add just the right touch.
Adding magnates to the metal stand to hold the metal mailbox on, was a way to help break it a part for storage.
Thank you stopping by.
