BE STILL MY HEART...GDT FOR CRAFTING BY DESIGNS..



Hello Everyone...

So happy to be here today and very excited too as I am Guest Designer for Crafting By Designs  and their challenge this week is HEARTS...

For my project I went with a cut up cardboard box...you cant beat a cut up cardboard box...shaped into HEARTS...



1..2..3..heart shapes, hand cut out....the large one at the back was gesso'd...the middle one paper pieced as is the small one...all layered up with more cardboard...



There's the layers....



I love thos strings of pearls and have no idea where I found them now...but...one day I will spot them again and get more..they just poke in perfectly..



Those beautiful orange flowers from the $2 shop...a bunch that I of course cut up...



Love these little post cards from a paper pad..Cre8tiv paper stack ...and my new birdies on a branch die..Couture Creations...and cuttlebug hearts ...some netting and a shoe lace bow...




Thank you Doris and DT's for having me...such an honour..and thank you everyone for stopping by..I really appreciate the time you take..

What a great job you did with this GDT project! I've studied it, all the layers, textures, cuts and assembly, it's the kind of randomly organized look I love but can't seem to get the hang on myself...
