Floral Abundance

**I will draw the name for the giveaway tomorrow, so if you would like to be part of the drawing please leave a comment on the post below by midnight PST today, 3/29.**

My "For The Record" class is live for those in the Bay Area. Here are the details for sign ups at Scrapbook Territory's blog. This last weekend, I spent catching up with my cousin from Utah, grabbing some creative goodies, and watching Lost with the Hubsters. I know, we are a bit late to the party, but now I get to watch it start to finish without waiting long periods of time.

I also found time to make this wall art. I have had the paper mache heart in the stash for a while and decided it was time to put it to use. I have been itching to use the ginormous bottle caps from the new Maya Road release and this was the perfect place to do it.

Some new twine from Pink Paislee's "Soiree" release, a lot of GCD/Melody Ross from last year's release, Stampin Up! library clips that I am totally in love with, and a LOT of flowers, some Prima, some not. I used Modge Podge for the cover of the heart, the satin finish for the dictionary paper and the fabric for the lace and velvet. I also used the satin for the inside of the bottle cap.

That is a piece of left over sewing pattern paper, misted with Smooch ink, and Modge Podged onto the back. I left it wrinkle for more texture.

This now hangs above my dresser, which I would have taken a picture of it there IF the lighting in this house wasn't so cave-like. It is right next to my three displays of necklaces and it makes me smile when I have to get dressed and inspires me when I am picking out jewelry.


  1. This is so pretty! I love all of the different textures! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. :)

    BTW, we started watching LOST after the 5th season.. it was nice being able to watch it without interruptions, at least for those seasons!

  2. That is one sweet heart! I love, love, love the larger-than-life bottle cap and what you did with it.
    So pretty, no wonder it makes you smile when you look at it!

  3. How big is this heart? Being wall art, I pictured it to be really large. Then you said it hangs with your jewelry... Doesn't matter - it's fab! I love how you've mixed all textures and the elements together to create a beautiful piece.

  4. Fabulous project! Love the sentiment and the flowers are beautiful!

  5. I commented on your post that you announced the drawing on.

  6. What a wonderful creation. You took so many different materials and blended them to into an eye-stunner. No doubt that pretty heart makes you smile. I've never seen a bottle cap that large. Very cool design. Good luck in your class. Wish I was out there and able to take it.

  7. It would make me smile too! It's just so pretty Lora! I love it and love all the colors!
