Hello all and welcome to this week's challenge at The Beary Scrap Challenge Blog! We're making DIY (Do It Yourself) embellishments this week and I've got a lot of DIY to share with you - wheeeeee!
Recently, I partnered up with my stampy blog friend, Tammy, to make an Art Quilt! I'm having so much fun making the little blocks for my quilt ... I was a quilter before I got addicted to paper crafting!! I adore how my blocks are coming out ... all scrappy, shabby and FUN! Click HERE to read about how we were inspired to begin this fun project together!
So, this is block #3 out of the 16 total blocks I will have when this project is complete. I stamped a beautiful image from Kaisercraft's Flourish Journals stamp set on beautiful Annalee patterned paper by Prima. I cut out the image and adhered a vintage tag, a snipett of lace and a couple of Light Pink Rhinestones from Kaisercraft.
The pretty bow is made from pink seam binding and I attached a heart charm at the middle. The center of the quilt block had some tea-stained twill tape and pretty little white pom-pom trim. Above this trim I added three beautiful Snow Pearls from Kaisercraft.
After I spritzed the chipboard frame with pink and green glimmer mist and added some glitter, I adhered some 20 mm pink and white mulberry paper roses to the frame and one more in the center of the pink bloomer! A few more bits and bobs of vintage treasures - crystal trinket pins, leaves made from glittered paper and machine sewn for contrast, a vintage doilie - complete this DIY handmade from the heart quilt block!
Thanks for peeking ... have a wonderful stampy day!
