FABRIC HEART ART with Shimmerz Spritz!

Lucky me, I get the first post in February, so I can wish you all a splendid month filled with candy hearts and hugs, and lots of hugs and kisses from loved ones.  This month, Bethany gave us a loose theme of "HEART", and it was up to us to use it or not.  I used it.  I RAN with it!  This project is ALL HEART!

 Do you have a crafty daughter, a scrapbooker, yourself perhaps who needs some LOVE this February?  Have a bit of time to sit down and create ART FROM THE HEART? 

This video tutorial takes you through creating a FABRIC HEART with Shimmerz and stamps, then creating a canvas/Gesso background for your heart to really shine.

This project is also great for using up odds and ends of stash!  It's a CRAFTY project for a CRAFTY chick!  PS: Heidi K. - see that wing?  I believe it came from your stash!  Thanks!!!

Hope you enjoy!
