May Day

Happy Wednesday,

May is just flying by! Well Monday it was 81 and sunny but the rest of the week is 60's and showers. Just hoping the warm comes to stay......

I decided to create this wooden heart I bought at Michaels into a Maypole. I painted the heart with Martha Stewart Rose paint. My sweet hubby drilled a hole for the pole. To create the pole I used a straw then wrapped it in ribbon. To complete the pole design I added taffeta, pink ribbon, white curling ribbon and a pearl on top. The top of the my design is full of flowers from Prima, WOC and Kort & Godt.  The inside of the heart was lined with white lace and a white flower trim. To complete the design I added pink roses and Magnolia Doohickey Swirly Butterfly Die. The stamps are from Magnolia - Tilda with Cros Necklace, Sweet Princess, Magnolia Tilda and Tilda with Ballet Shoes. My images were colored with Copics and paper pieced with Magnolia and Maja Paper.

Here are some close ups of my project:
