Hearts

Our challenge this week on http://bigartadventure.blogspot.com/ is to create a piece of art with a milagros heart on it.
I needle-felted both of my hearts and made the pink one into a little quilt .



The second one I mounted onto organza then metal. The patterns on the metal were made using tools from Ten Second Studios (bought from LBCrafts.)

Thanks to you I am now a firm believer in needle-felting!! How quick and easy it is! I kept going back again and again adding bits n stuff, and the pieces I made have no beads - yet!!
I even got Sally at the Scrapstore to order me some rovings!!
I do so love what you did with both of your pieces - the organza and metal is especially beautiful!

I don't know why bloglines refused to update your blog. I was wondering where you had gone and just checked in on the off chance. Glad to see that you are still blogging and showing us your gorgeous art. Love the hearts they are beautiful perfect for Valentine's day.

Jacky said...

Your hearts are beautiful, I love them, so tactile.
I hope your dad is settling into his new nursing home, it sounds such a lovely setting and I am sure you and the family will feel better knowing he is in a nicer home.
That snow!!! You be careful on the roads (I like the sound of that gallery you are working at).

Take care and lots of love,

Jacky xox
