Recycled magazine art

Good afternoon friends!

Here is my first post of August..

But before that I wanna Thank you all for leaving such encouraging comments on my last card.

But today's creation is not a card. It is a wall hanging. To create this I recycled old magaine papers. Here is the final outcome...

To create this wall hanging I used follwing materials-
1.Old magazine
2.Glue and a pair of scissors
3.A refill and a pencil (to roll paper of 2 different sizes)
4.Embroidery Thread
5.A heart shaped paper (as a guide while making the heart)
6.A cardstock and the Sentiment.

The process is very simple.

Step 1: Cut the magazine page in half vertically.

Step 2:Then take the refill and starting from the bottom corner at a slight angle, roll the paper to the opposite corner. About half way, you may need to adjust the refill so that you don’t roll off one end of it.

Step 3:Once you get it completely rolled, use your glue to tack it to stay. Then slide out the refill.

Step 4:Make a small pile of such rolled pages. And shape them into a heart using hand cut heart as a shape guide, scissors and some glue.

Step 5:Repeating the same process make 4 bigger reeds using pencil to roll the paper. And attach them to the edges of cardstock giving it a framed look. Then connect the heart to the frame with a thread.

Step 6:Finally attach the hand written sentiment and decorate it as you like(I wanted to keep it simple).
