There is love in my heart

For Retro Cafe ARt today, I had fun with some thing new, but to me it's some thing old. Its called honeycomb paper.  I remember these papers from when I was a kid, there were Easter egg decorations , Christmas balls or stars and even big white wedding bells. I always loved when my mother decorated with it and we got to open the package. Its just paper but it was always a treat to see.

So to make this tag, I started with painting the background red and black acrylic then added the red glitter squares. I used images from the RCA's Valentines day collage sheet by Debrina Pratt. Next came the accents with red glass heart brads,  RCA red and white Washi heart tape and the Retro Cafe Art black honeycomb paper  cut into the shape of a heart. The finishing touches were some white paint touches, Christmas Red Stickles and a snappy red and white striped ribbon.

Hope you will remember a fond childhood memory this week.
take care, gerri
