The Crafter's Cafe #236 - 15th February Red/ Pink

New challenge at The Crafter's Cafe this fortnight the theme is use Red/Pink.

Two great sponsors

Prize: 3 images

Prize: 3 images
I chose an image from QKR called, Rose. and created a mixed media page in my bullet diary, I am trying to get a page for each month.  
The rose has been coloured with red and green copic pens and fussy cut.

For this one, I first layered the page with pages from an old book, the layered red tissue paper of the lot, then did another layer of red tissue, didn't realise how transparent it was at first.

Typed three verses of Robbie Burns love poem, adhered the verses and the rose onto the page, wrote some facts about February in white pen and added some gold liquid pearls and doodles some hearts to complete the page.
I chose img 421 from My Besties to make a card, then found out it was just a bit too big and overwhelming on a card, so instead I altered the cover of an art journal, where I try to draw faces.

Coloured with copic pens, pencils and some white paint.
