On with my samples for today!
To begin,I doubled backed my graphic picks from 
the Holiday Icons set from GeckoGalz images
 and fancy cut them out
After gessoing the front and back of my chipboard pieces,
I used DecoArt Modeling Paste mixed with Chalky Finish paint
this was smoothed through a stencil.
Next,I distressed the background using metallic paint as well as ink on the edges
Here,I added hearts that I painted and cut from vintage lace
and then placed my Gecko Galz graphics
A few embellishments were added,hearts,wording,
LOVE chipboard
and ribbon for hanging!
