Heart Awakenings

Was getting ready for a Creative Haven evening here

punching hearts and hymnal page circles
 these make a great banner to hand-make for heart day

and saw a project on Pinterest and thought we might try our hand at these:

used doilies to get some heart shapes and cut hearts out of the cardboard stock pile

cereal boxes would work for this and they are free!

used paper on cardboard for first layer
 then an accordion pleated "notes" medallion
fabric covered heart
Oh my soul - Praise Him circle
 on top of THAT
 2 felt hearts stitched together
some vintage buttons and a pearl
added a bit of glitter on the heart edge

some ruffled crepe paper edge- sewn on the sewing machine
 some vintage paper from an French book
and rolled magazine medallions- 
confiscated form Laura's art room when we moved her from Las Vegas to Ann Arbor

can see here I added some stamped ink on the first layer

a beautiful fabric rosette brought from friend Bonnie
 was the absolute amazing finishing touch

some crinkle ribbon for a hanger
some wonderful ribbon yarn at the base
a lattice punched heart 

So tried my hand at another one

details- found a wonderful crochet flower

finished off with a sparkly vintage pin

A bit of heart gatherings on my snowy
February birthday
in Virginia.

Not a bad day held in softness.
