This is the first heart I made to trade in the Chain of Hearts Yahoo Group. It is 7 inches wide and 6 inches tall. The heart is accented with a beautiful tea theme design, a quote, " One sip of tea will bathe the drooping spirits in delight beyond bliss of dreams" - Milton. There are four lavender button accents and a smokey lavender vintage button with a curved pattern. I included a lovely transparency of a woman sipping tea. There is a 1.5 cut on the right edge. This does not interfer with the beauty of this heart.
"Pensive Woman" (SWAPED)
This is the next heart I created. The base of this design was material from a dear friend in Australia. The print corresponded with this image of a pensive woman. I accented this heart with vintage lace and a large decorative black button 2 inches in circumference. The art piece is 6 x 6 inches.
"Faces in Time"
From the early 1900's to the modern-the women's' images are the focal point of this heart. The background is a crazy quilt piece including parts of time, (Robert Kaufman)and black dots. The center shows an actual watch face (Marcus Brothers)with a vintage time-hand and a broken piece of red glass for accent. The heart measures 6 x 5.75 inches. This heart has a soft fiber background.
"Elegant Cowgirl" The Australia fabric print was the background for this beautiful heart. I layered fabric designs from a nice pastel print. I added lace and a 1 inch vintage button for accent. This heart measures 6 x 6.
I clipped a set of French style crystal perfume bottles from this fabric by Woodrow Studios of London entitled, "Art Deco Style Perfume Crystal Bottles" Sadly this company is no longer in business. I accented with a sheet of metallic weave. A vintage image of an advertisement for cologne was sealed in a perfume bottle tag. Captured is a child holding a bottle for the woman to inhale. A dyed piece of lace and three buttons complete this neat 6 x 6 heart. A gold gilded vintage button complements the gold accents.
