Hey there! I have a new mixed media page using the Blooming Hearts line today; there is lots of watercolor, paste and stitching mixed in with the pretty elements of this collection.
The cut-apart flags were the inspiration for this page. I trimmed up the entire sheet of flags and arranged them on my page to get a general idea of what I wanted to create. Before adhering and stitching the flags I opted for some mixed media with gold paste, a doily stencil and watercolors in shades of pink, plus yellow.
I stitched the banner flags with white thread, running each row of flags through my machine twice. After that I used tissue paper and patterned paper from the Blooming Hearts line as layers behind my photo.
Below the photo I used several of the gorgeous flower and leaves die cuts, adding tangled thread behind them for texture and interest.
The title came from the 1″ circle punch outs. I added tangled thread behind two of them for more detail.
I love how it came together.
