Heart From the Heart Swap

I joined Debbie's swap at the last minute and I'm so thrilled I did. I received this stunning heart from Jillayne. I absolutely love it. The detailed stitching the colors everything about it is fabulous.
Debbie also included a little heart and you would think the two of them had gotten together. Same colors and stitching.
They look wonderful on my heart wall.
This is the heart that I made.

February Artful Bag Challenge

This month's challenge for the Artful Bag Challenge is Alter It. Using something that is not originally a purse. I used an old hardback book. Removing the guts of the book. I covered the back and front with the pages that were removed. Then waxed over the entire thing. Sides are out of decorative paper and lined inside with the same paper.

Embellished with waxed corn husk flowers, beads, and coffee stained scrim.

I left the back undecorated. I always love how the wax absorbs the paper differently and creates different tones.
