It was one of those happy accidents. I wanted to blend this pretty pink heart paper onto my scrapbook page, and wasn't paying attention to where I was slipping it.
It landed between the two photo layers, and created a wonderful effect of pink hearts and flowers blended into the landscape. I decided to use this idea for an accompanying page of the harbor of Portofino.
I used a watercolor brush against the masked photo to create the heart shape. A couple more photos, with the same matting as in the accompanying layout, completed the page in no time. I love how there is a pink tower draped over the front of that boat.
I do hope I can return to see Portofino again!
