These were all done on a base of a heart shape cut from a fulled wool sweater- then I played!! To finish them off I added beads to the flower centers and other beaded touches.
THen I made one more elaborate large heart with a crystal bauble! I love making these!!
In the top left corner you can see a bit of paper. I cut the definiton of Heartfelt from a vintage dictionary and trapped it behind the polka dot tulle. Then I finished the whole thing with beads and backed it with purple velvet!! YUMMY!!!
Then I made some Crazy Quilt style hearts. I have been visiting Pat Winter's blog lately, so I blame this on her!! LOL!!!! If Pat can't get one inspried to embellish and Crazy Quilt, then it can't be done!!!!
(This photo is on end as well-Sorry!!)
I used bits and pieces of scraps and samples from some discarde upholstery books. Then I added vintage lace and trims and buttons and beads!!
I also made some earrings with some wonderful Heart beads that I found at a new bead store- new to me anyway!!
I made the little display stands using watercolor paper and Hot Cinnamon Glimmer Mists- I love this stuff!! My hands are the same color as the cards!!
I also decided to add beads to the Red and Purple scarf. Now you didn't seriously think that I was going to let this scarf go unadorned did you???? COME ON!!!!!!
And now for a close up ,Mr. Demille!
A random sprinkling really ups the bling factor!!
I notice that I am coming up on my 250th post!!!!! So glad that I did not miss this milestone like I missed some others. I think that I will have a giveaway- maybe an Embellished Heart- just in time for Valentines Day. What do you think??? I will write a post with all the details very soon , so y'all come back soon!!!
