Love --- featuring Bella Blvd. for LESSology :)

Hi everyone! :)


I wanted to share my on LESSology's latest challenge!!! This month's challenge is LAUNDRY DAY!! We want to see Clothespins  on your project!!! Clothespins have been huge in the scrapping industry for a few years now, so how fun to have a challenge for clothespins! :) 

I made a canvas!!   (I was inspired by this project I pinned awhile ago) :)


So can you see where I used the clothespins???  :)





For the canvas itself, I painted and misted it.  Then I used some houndstooth tissue paper that I received from Paper Issues with my most recent scrappy purchase (Paper Issues wrapped my papers in the tissue paper!! LOVED THAT!!!)  


Then I took some vintage spools and decorated them with different various bits from my scrappy stash and shaped them into a heart! :) 

Added some Bella Blvd. "Molly" paper bits on the top of each spool ... and you have a heart from some papers and bits :) 












Now enters the CLOTHESPINS!! Did you spot them right away??? :)
I took some Dear Lizzy clothespins and shaped them into "LOVE"  (only the "O" isn't a clothespin ... that's a mini wreath!!!)  :)











And our prize this month is -- 

Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiment 12x12 Paper Collection 

41 00809 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
