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
