I was trying to do some cleaning and found some of my wedding photos and really wanted to scrap one. The paper girls have a sewing challenge going on right now and I knew it would be perfect for my wedding photo. I sewed around the outside with my sewing machine. I knew I wanted to hand sew the ombre feather and I'm really happy with how it came out. Of course, I did some water color again because I'm on a water color kick. I also decided to make my journaling hidden because it is a really crazy story about some killer squirrels that goes with this photo.
Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own. So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!
