A pocket of hearts.

As some of you know I am enjoying joining in with the Documented Life Project. Week 7 challenge was to produce something with a repeated shape. I saw that someone had make a pocket of hearts and I adapted it to my own style.
Well its Valentines Day tomorrow so I chose the heart. Also I wanted to use my sewing machine.

I started by covering a piece of card with calico and dampened it and sprayed with bright Dylusion inks. Next I stencilled hearts onto the background and stamped with Darcy's little heart. I also sprayed another piece of calico for the pocket.
I cut out several hearts from bits and bobs of paper and stitched them to the background and the pocket.
Added a bit of lace and assembled my page.
I made a few extra hearts to go in the pocket, glued on some gem hearts and sprayed it with sparkle.
Just in case Sam reads this part of my blog….sorry for it being so pink!
Thought that I should add a close up.
