Fabulous Friday at Frosted Designs

This week's Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Designs is to make your own embellishments!

Using a technique taught by Christy Tomlinson in her  
"Your Living Canvas" workshop, I made these hearts:

I mixed burgandy and red paint together with modeling paste and spread it through a stencil onto a non stick mat. After the hearts were dry, I mixed green paint into some modeling paste and pushed it through the Leaf Grid stencil by Crafter's Workshop directly on to the heart. I then added the pearl embellishment by Making Memories. This was a fun, easy technique that I will be using again!

Here they are on my layout. In the upper left corner of the layout are more leaves done directly on the paper using the same technique. 
The portrait is of my gorgeous daughter Robin and her awesome husband Bryan taken on a cruise they went on to celebrate their 5th anniversary.
This layout is the scrapbook side of my June 366 Art Journal/Calendar project. If you are unfamiliar with this project, see the original post here. This project has taken on a decidedly scrapbooking quality and I must endeavor to make July's spread more art journally!

Here is the Calendar side:
