We're swapping Valentine spoolies in my flickr group
and this is what I came up with for my partner
I painted a large vintage spool white, then covered it with a pleated white satin.
The next layer is a gathered white swiss polka dot sheer trim,
then a pink twill xoxo trim.
I used pink pearl strands to trim the top and bottom of the spool.
Next was the challenge of creating a mixed media assemblage on top of the spool!
I used three red glittered puffy heart picks for the backdrop.
The image of the sweet Valentine clown is printed on heavy photo paper.
I trimmed the top of her hat with red tinsel, gave her some puffy angel wings
and her own Valentine flag.
The top of the spool is edged in pink bling.
I love when a project involves different materials and the element of design.
This project did just that and was a lot of fun!
If you'd like to see more Valentine spoolies,
look through the group's photo pool
Thanks again to
the inspiration for this swap.
