Challenge - More Than Words - February

This is my take on the February Challenge at More Than Words. The assignment was word inspiration: Forever and creative inspiration: Hearts.
I decided to take a slightly different approach than my original plan (using wedding pictures...), and make a page about my favourite band. Something I've been planning to do for a long time.
The photo was taken by me at a Metallica-concert in 2015.
The papers are mainly from 7 Dots Studio. I first sketched a big heart, then glued strips of old bookpages, and finally used my sewing machine.
I added some clear gesso to the page, before using a pencil + water to create som shade around the heart. 
Distress Oxide + water to add some blue color, and then lots of stamping, using stamps from Carabelle and Prima.
The stars are made with metallic tape and embossing folders.
Layers of paper behind the photo, combined with chipboard from SnipArt, punchinella, and die cuts from Sizzix.
The word 'forever' is a Dymo strip, and 'Rock!' is created the same way as the stars, using a die from Spellbinders.
The last embellishments are actual picks and buttons from Metallica, and the bracelet from the concert.

I had so much fun making this page. And since I'm also going to their show in Krakow in April, there might be new photos to use...
