Welcome to my first post as February's Guest Design Team Member for eclectic Paperie. I'm so honored to be able to share my creations on the eclectic Paperie blog. Thank you Bonnie and Kim for providing me with this opportunity.
My project began with a metal heart that I purchased in a gift shop in Sheridan, Wyoming, many years ago. The heart already had somewhat of a distressed appearance---I loved the rusty old key hanging from the wire. The antique handkerchief came from my mom...she was a waitress and this was probably one of those decorative hankies that waitresses back in the 50's wore in their blouse pockets. The "LOVE" hanging from the key is a wooden laser cut icon from Prima. I painted it with a gold leaf Krylon pen and then distressed it with Brushed Corduroy TH Distress Ink. It hangs from a piece of gold cording.
Other items that you can find in the eclectic Paperie store that I used to create my project are my favorite scissors by Cutter Bee, Zip-Dry paper glue, Scotch Foam Mounting Tape (pops up and adds dimension to some of the paper images), Glue Dots Mini Clear to adhere the hankie and the large image to the metal heart. The Sakura Quikie Glue Pen is also great for teeny tiny flowers and the butterfly.
Thanks for stopping by and come back next week to see my next project for eclectic Paperie. Paulette
