Hero Arts Week-Day Two

Hi Friends. Back today with day two of Hero Arts Week. I will try to show two projects each day. One that goes with a prize and another that's a HA product spotlight. First, here is a layout that is linked to today's prize....
This layout was SO much fun to do. However, my hand was swollen afterwards. LOL I used a BUNCH of the Hero Arts Art Flowers in different colors and layered them on a 12x12 piece of paper. I added all kinds of goodies in the middle of some of the flowers, like buttons, gems, and brads, to catch your eye. I just love the end result. I didn't put any journaling on the layout to keep it simple because I have plans to put it in a shadowbox.

The picture of Alex and I isn't the best but its one I LOVE! Yes, we are directly in the sun and standing in front of my car ready to go but it is the memory of that day that makes me smile. That young man does color my world in so many ways.

This next shot is a glimpse that the picture of us isn't too terribly bad. I'm not sure why it looks that way in the pic above. Probably just my poor photography skills. lol
and here is a detailed shot of the chipboard letters that I covered with ink and then applied sticklez to. They are super shiny in real life...Okay, on to the prize for today....I have an extra pack of these HA art flowers in earth print....
Wanna win some? Just leave a comment below about anything. :) I'll draw a winner tomorrow!

Next up is the stamp set product spotlight...a super quick card:
I created this card using THIS adorable set.... Off to plan tomorrow's fun. Have a great night. Thanks for stopping by!

Linda aka Oz said...

OMGosh Heather, what ever possesed you.. LOL It is truly a work of art, I am glad to hear you are putting it up in a shadow box. Not all of our pictures have to be magazine perfect, they just have to be us. This one celebrates life, love and pride.. to me that is perfection. Great project. Thank you for sharing.

Such color, the work you put in really shows, and I can sympathize, I did a different type and my bursitis in my right arm is killing me, but oh so worth the effect.
Beautiful work!!
