President Appreciation

Hey everyone. Today is Mini Book Friday and I have a couple of pages from my holiday art journal. I'll start with my Valentine's Day page.

For my Valentine's Day page I covered the background with pink tissue paper and then painted over it with pink and red paint. I added some Recollection Valentine die cuts and also painted some chipboard photo corner pink. I also painted some hearts on the pages and also made a heart using glitter glue. I wrote a quote on the right page that reads "What a grand thing to be loved! What a grander thing still to LOVE!" When I was all done, added my date stamp for the day of the holiday.
Onto my second page:

These pages are to celebrate President's day. I painted the backgrounds with red, white, and blue acrylic paint. I then printed out silhouettes of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln and cut them out. I traced around them and then painted them in with black paint. Lastly, I printed lines from the presidents most well know speech. For Washington, its his inauguration speech and for Lincoln its his Gettysburg Address. I also distressed the strips of paper with the lines on it with Vintage Photo distress ink.
Those are my two pages for this week. I hope you liked them. I'll try to make another post this weekend to make up for not having anything on Clay Wednesday. Until next time, TTFN Ta ta for now.
