Lone Star Patchwork Hearts Collage

A couple of months ago I noticed a big stack of discarded magazines at my local library and being an eco-friendly paper crafter, I took *almost* the whole pile home with me, sure that I would use them.

This is the 2nd collage in a new size that I've begun doing ~
  • Outside frame measures 11" X 14"
  • DOUBLE mat opening measures 8" X 10"
  • Collage measures 8.5" X 10.5"
The magazine cover featured a gorgeous lone star quilt in shades of red, black, yellow and yellow and it was gave me just enough hearts for this larger size :o)

What a fabulous idea Dallas, I love recycling projects - especially when they turn out so beautifully! The colours are stunning and you have such a great way of positioning the hearts to make the best use of the pattern on each one. Jo x

Thanks Jo ~ I had such fun doing this and it was great to know that the best parts of the magazines were not going to waste :o)
