Key to my Heart- My 2 Crafty February Creations Part 1

Here is my first layout for my 2 Crafty reveal this month. I wanted to show it to you in a little bit more detail.
I also used this layout for my reveal at 13 Arts. I loved using these 13 Arts papers. I especially love this wood grain background paper.

As its the month of February I thought it would be appropriate to make my layouts related to the theme of love. The first layout is about the 3 people that hold the Key to my Heart. My husband and kids light up my life and make each and every day brighter!! This is a layout dedicated to them!!

First I used the Edith's Frame. I covered the frame with thin strips from the background paper. Then I covered it with crackle gel and edged it in black. It looks as if the frame is made out of wood.

To make this effect, I dripped some gesso thickly under the picture and then painted it with 2 shades of Pink Shimmerz. I also rolled the edges of the paper to make it look like rolled bark from a tree. I love this effect on the paper it almost looks real. Then I glued some Design Elements swirls around the framed paper.

I dripped some white Calico mist under the title and tinted it with Shimmerz. The Key to my heart title was painted in Gesso and then tinted it in pink again.
