SOTM Blog Hop-- January


Hi welcome to the January SOTM Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring a 12 piece set called "This Moment". 

There are over 60 CTMH Consultants participating in the hop.  The hop is one big circle.  If you've come from Kelly's Blog, then you are on the right track.  Should you get lost along the way, a complete list can be found HERE.

I created LOs for my project.  This fall we visited an outside sculpture museum in Massachusetts called deCordova.  If you are ever in the area, I highly suggest a day trip.

My daughter and I were drawn to the large cast iron hearts by the artist Dine.  As you'll see from the LOs below, we took many photos of these hearts!  They were absolutely stunning.

For the first page, I started out by spraying white ink randomly on the paper.  While that was drying, I cut out 2 heart overlays from the CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge.  I cut the first one in half and placed it behind the photo making it looking it was floating off the page.

Notice how I incorporated the SOTM-- the red pennant, the blue 'love this' heart, and blue circle target and arrow. 




Page 2 above.  I made a smaller heart overlay.  Using the CTMH Artiste, I cut out a Cupid:)
 

Here is a close up of page one.  You can see the combination of stamping, ink spray, stickers, paper, shimmer tape, and metal, sequin.  All of those elements make it different.
Close up for page 2. 





I thought about splitting up the two pages-- put one page in her scrapbook and the other in mine.  But these pages are meant to be together, just as she and I are meant to be together.  Every time I see these pictures, I find myself singing U2's 1983 song "two hearts beat as one"!!.

 
Here is the stamp set.  The 2 images outlined in red can be cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge.










Well thanks for stopping by.  If you love the SOTM and don't have a consultant, then please contact me or visit my Store.

Next up is Nancy's.  Please be sure to visit Nancy's Blog and all of the consultants blogs.

Happy New Year!
