L-O-V-E
















                            New year....and already almost mid month.........???   Time just keeps getting away from me.   I have a fun and whimsical Valentine piece to share that I made for RRR this month.  Perfect for that special someone in February or brighten a corner in your home.  I rummaged through my chipboard pieces and came across this lone Maya Road scallop piece.   I  knew that it would be perfect to pair with my LOVE typography.  I don't know about you, but one of my favorite pairings is grey and red.  I picked out a lovely damask in grey and went to work tracing it using my scallop piece.  I cut it out and than adhered it to the base.  I sanded and distressed it to get the edges nice and clean and aged it a bit as well.
                                                 Once the hard part of that was done, it was time for the fun part of picking ribbons and embellies! I picked out some Pewter crochet lace for my base and added white ruffle ribbon over that.  I wanted more red as well so I used red seam binding to hang the sign from.  Now it was time to adhere the LOVE word to the plaque, which I did using hot glue. From there I added goodies I have been hoarding for awhile....eclectic little pieces.  A wood clock, large rose cabochon (love these), buttons, vintage velvet millinary leaves, and the sweetest little glass birdy.  I love, love, love how this turned out.   Hope you do too!  Happy Sunday, Cherry
