Making the Old New with Heart

In honor of the new year, the ladies over at Heart 2 Heart want to see something old used in a new way, so I rotated the Snowflake mini from the Christmas before last to create a row of Art Deco(ish) tiles following this Atlantic Hearts sketch:

First up was with a pop of Lagoon with sparkles colored with my ShinHan marker in Peacock Teal:

Next I tried a few more pops, this time in Pixie, and upped the contrast with some black layers:

Lastly I did one in black and white:

One thing I learned is that I am much better at coloring small circles than I am tiny triangles, so I embossed the images with clear detail powder to help me stay within the lines.  This reminds me of the original bathroom in my 1930"s house.

I am also going to enter the pink card in the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes Challenge which is a new challenge blog for me.  Thank you for stopping by!  Now please head on over to Seize the BirthdayHeart 2 Heart and Atlantic Hearts for some more inspiration.  Until next time, Hansi
