Hearts and Crafts

Here is yet another project using a heart image. Actually, there are four different images on this particular project, one of them just happens to be a heart! It's a little wood "book" with two pages.

Torn pink paper is collaged on a 2" square wood base. Cut-out hearts and tissue-stamped word are layered on top. The wood square is attached to another sqaure with jump rings.

Hearts and crafts, two of my favorite things, and they just happen to go together beautifully, in my opinion!

Heart Card

I create a lot of projects that include hearts, so I thought I would post another heart item.

This one is a card. Two bottle caps and a red doily is layered on a tea-dyed heart, with fringy yarn around the edge. One bottle cap has a round sticker says "family", the other has a a round sticker with a picture of three women (they look like family members to me). I made this quite a while ago.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm Back, With a Heart!

I haven't posted on this blog for a long time, but thought I'd give it another try. Let's see how long my good intentions last!

In honor of Valentine's Day, here is a picture of a potpourri heart. It's made from a paper mache' heart that is hollow in the center. It was painted, splattered gold and collaged with vintage-look floral images and tissue paper. A ribbon was attached through the top. The potpourri was inserted through a heart-shaped hole in the front, then the hole was covered with lace.
