SEW Cherished

It's friday and time for our new challenge over at Crafts4eternity and out theme for this week is VINTAGE,and anything goes as long as it has a vintage theme. Unlike last week this weeks challenge finds me a little more in my comfort zone, thankfully.

This week I have made a heart shaped wall hanging with a VINTAGE sewing theme called "Sew Cherished". 
I started with a paper mache plain heart and did this to it

most of this I then ended covering up.

Then using Tim Holtz alterations  "Sewing Room" die, I made my main pieces
Then as you can see added loads of other bits and pieces, many from Tim Holtz and the remainder odd bit from my stash. I have used loads of vintage photo and walnut distress ink to age my project. I have finished it off with a lovely charm of vintage scissors, I have held onto these for ages.

This weeks challenge is being sponsored by Michelle at Crafts4eternity and one lucky randomly chosen winner will be able to pick 3 digital images from the online store.

So please join us this week and show us your vintage creations.
