Confetti Hearts

In last month's like for ever kit there was a huge tub of heart confetti from Pebbles.  I loved it and could see myself making shaker pockets, using them as I would sequins and enamel dots and then this idea popped in to my head...

Stringing lots of hearts together and using them as bunting, perfect.  I only put the needle in my thumb twice - for me this is a vast improvement!

I gave one of the wood veneers from the kit a coat of pink acrylic paint, a coat of melon Gelato, a coat of Shimmerz Dazzlerz in spun sugar.  I sanded it down a little and decided that was the best colour match I was going to get.

I poked holes in to my watercolour paper background and strung my lines of bunting.  Then I watered down the melon gelato and added a generous helping of splatters.

I knew my photo needed layers but I kept them subtle and narrow, and included vellum to keep them 'soft' so the main focus besides the photo itself would be the hearts.

And I can tell you I love it and will be string more little things together soon!!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Laura, What a lovely LO. I like the hearts.

  2. Oh My! Laura I absolutely love what you have done with the confetti!!!! I would never have thought of this and I bet it hasn't even made a dent in the vast amount of confetti that we got in the tub! You're wood 'Love' looks fab and those vellum corners are so sweet. I've pinned this if that's ok? xxxxx
