Mixed Media and Vintage Hearts for Valentine's Day!

Thanks for "hopping" by for the DESIGNER CRAFTS CONNECTION February Blog Hop!  This month's theme is Crafting with Heart!

I don't have a step by step tutorial this month, but wanted to share some of my favorite projects with HEART!

This VINTAGE HEART is layered with old music sheets, doilies and a cute vintage Valentine's Day card.  I embellished it with crinkle seam binding ribbon that I hand dyed with Ranger Distressed re-inkers, scrapbook elements, lace, flowers and rhinestones.  This was fun to make and is hanging on my front door.

This MIXED MEDIA HEART is covered with crumpled scrapbook papers to achieve the texture, then stamped with patterns created from toilet paper tubes, bubble wrap and a plastic fork!  I LOVE experimenting on projects like this.  Rhinestone, pearl, metal and tissue paper flower embellishments complete this puffy paper mache heart!

This COLLAGE HEART is covered with classic Scenic Route scrapbook papers, vintage book paper ruffles, glitter, cupcake liners, a funky fiber tassel and a photo of my Brother and Sister-in-Law renewing their Wedding Vows on their 10th Anniversary!  

Please HOP AROUND and see what other Crafts with Heart the rest of the Designers are sharing with everyone today.  Just click on the HOP FORWARD and HOP BACK buttons in the DESIGNER CRAFTS CONNECTION icon on the right hand side task bar.  HAPPY HOPPING!

Thanks for stopping by!  -Beth
