Graphic 45 Asian heart - or I love Asian art

Can you believe it, two posts in two days, what is happening in the world.
Not sure about the answer to that but quite a lot happening on my desk at the moment as I have been playing with the Graphic 45 Birdsong papers I won last week.

Yesterday I showed the basic hearts as part of my 'tear-and-share' WOYWW post, today it's the finished article. Added quite a few bits and bobs, buttons, stick on hearts, Ideology frames and some more lovely Graphic 45 faux postage stamps,  Lots of fun making this and lots more paper left for project number 2.

(Garden's looking a bit sad at this time of year but there is a still a bit of colour.)

Back to the hanging hearts and here are close-ups of the individual hearts.

The blue one, complete with handmade rose dipped in UTE and a scrap butterfly.

The black one with handmade mitzhouki (?) knot and an alcohol coloured dragonfly.

The red one with another alcohol inked piece (the butterfly) and a rolled paper scroll.

So that's finished and my next project is a Christmas house - will take me a bit more than two days to complete that one though.

Gorgeous. I love Graphic 45 but never know what to do with it. I will have to pinch some of your ideas :-D

Also love the knitted socks from an earlier post.
