Last week I created this project with Somerset Holidays & Celebrations in mind.
It was such a privilege being featured in the last issue and Valentine's Day coming up I was in the mood to create something with a heart theme.
It is a intertwined heart banner made from manila folders cut into heart outlines and clipped at the bottom tip of the heart so that they can be intertwined. Some hearts are embellished with frilly fabric that has been cut into strips. Another heart has been covered with crepe paper and seam binding frills.
The other hearts are cut from beautiful specialty scrapbook papers.
Now, after the past 3 days of a wonderfully successful fund raising event this project is especially sentimental because it is very reflective of what is happening in the world at this moment.
With people around the blog world, the art world joining to use our talents to help Haiti how we can .
Showing that hearts intertwined and working together can form a substantial link :)
$320 was raised between my shop and these 3 generous ladies.
With funds being split between Rebecca Sower's Artisan group and Other Haiti Relief Organizations.
