This was a lil' piece I created for the Altered Alice blog challenge. This month's theme was hearts. I'd been saving this Somerset Artist paper for just the right occasion and this was just the right thing. It was one of those pieces that took hours more time than I ever anticipated, but here she is. I folded and glued together some Canson Mix Media paper. Then, I added the Somerset artist paper and some antique spelling primer pages. A coat of Tim Holtz paint and some Prisma pencils added some color. The top trim is white cotton thrift store trim I sprayed with mica ink and the bottom is from a vintage baby collar. The button is vintage and then there's machine stitching, a couple charms with fibers, a hand formed heart from annealed wire (on a Staz On stamped tag), and several hours under piles of heavy supplies to get the whole thing to lay flat. oh, and there's a little bit of German trim in the corner.
