You should have arrived here from the lovely and inspiring Michele! :o)
For my Valentine project, I made a little wall hanging bursting with love for a precious 6-year-old named Baylee. She is this month's recipient of the I Feel the Love Project, where we craft to deliver love to those in need. While Baylee fights a rare disorder, we are preparing a surprise package of joy. :o)
Hearts, roses, and butterflies will soon fill her room with love from my sappy heart. :o)
A closer peek at the Copic-colored Elisabeth Bell image, beautifully named Bella Sole Love Letters and accented with Star Dust and rhinestones:
The gorgeous patterned papers are from Authentique's Smitten collection (to match the mailbox I posted yesterday). I used a variety of metal dies from Marianne Design to add extra layers of love, all of which have been sponged with Tim Holtz Barn Door distress ink. For texture I added lace and crinkle ribbon, with a rose-centered bow for sweetness. Fluttering out from the trims is a sunshiny trail of butterflies, on their way to Baylee to cover her in the healing warmth of love.
The bottom corner contains a sweet little envelope (made from a doily card wrap cut file), secured with trendy twine and a metal heart charm. It is lined with red script paper, to which hearts are bubbling up with... yes... more love!
I used my crop-a-dile for the eyelets and strung it with the same cheery red ribbon that rests atop the lace. My base is a Lori Whitlock cut file. It is my heartfelt prayer that this, and everything else I made for her this month, will surround Baylee with the divine love that surpasses knowledge. :o)
*** Your next stop is the incredibly talented Karen G, a constant source of inspiration! Thank you for fluttering along with us! ***
