Lately I get so excited when I get a chance to finish a craft project. Like most artists and crafters, I have heaps of projects to complete. And the pile just keeps on growing!
I think I have figured out why it takes me so long to finish one creation. I usually make all my own little embellishments for my projects. So there's designing time, painting time, drying time, gluing time...and on and on.
Anyway, on to the shabby chic heart wall hanging.
I dyed some seam binding for the bow. Wrapped white floral tape around some wire and made little curly ques and adhered crystal beads to the ends. I made all the little pearl flower embellies, as well as, the paper rose. You really can't see the bling spray in the pictures, but I took thick fishing line and strung crystal and pearl beads along it, gluing them in place so they wouldn't slide. I even made the string of pearls....ok...not really...LOL!
I also made the stick pin and pearl dangle. I had so much fun making every thing for this heart.
