Retreat Projects.

Hi There

Today I would like to share with you one of the projects we made on last weekends retreat run by Rosemary Merry. It was fantastic !

This was a project using a wooden heart. Although it wasn't the right heart shape, this was easily altered using my Tim Holtz scissors. They are Great ! ! !

The papers are from the Beautiful Moments Range by Carta Bella. They are divine papers.
We traced aroung the heart and then cut the papers out to cover the wood front and back. We thencut up other papers from the range to embellish the heart. There was a sheet of messages, tags and sayings which were usesd for the 'Blessed' word and the 'Bird' sentiment.  The panel at the top was a journalling tag which had been cut from the papers. The flowers were die cut using the tattered florals die (I think it was :)). The smaller of the flowers were cut from cream card and a beige flowery card. Lace was attaced aroung the left hand side of the hreat, this was held in place with red line super sticky tape. The birdies were hand cut from the papers and then attaced using foam pads and then glazed using Glossy Accents. This effect looks FAB, but you must resist the urge to see if it has set, otherwise you end up with a finger mark in it :)

I hope to show you another project tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by. 
I appreciate all comments you may have on my creations.
