Live & Love Crafts DT Creation - A Paris Hanging

Hello everyone I'm here today with my DT for Live & Love Crafts & we have to make something that resembles Spring In Paris......
Well as I've never been out of the UK, I went on Pinterest for this one & tbh the most things I saw was Pink & Cherry Blossoms lol. However when I think of Paris the main thing I think of is 'LOVE' & so that's what this is about with bits of Paris thrown in...........I hope lol.
The love part is for my daughter, it's a Hanging for my daughter Natalie.
........well its certainly pink lol. I have of course used the super gorgeous Pion Paris Flea Market papers, this has got to be my favourite Pion collection. I used a Go-Kreate die to cut out the main shape, then matted it onto coorugated card which I also painted with Gesso.
Papers have been machine stitched.
I cut a Butterfly form one of the sheets & added a Tim Holtz Pen Nib to the centre.
Behind that I added a Heart Shaped Doily & also cut out a heart shape in corrugated card & again painted it with Gesso. There is also a Cheery Blossom there ;-)
So from a 6x6 sheet I cut out a small postcard & also a couple of stamps from a 12x12 sheet & attached them to more corrugated card in the shape of another heart........yep lots of hearts lol.
There is also a Cherub/Angel there........well it called for a Cherub/Angel lol. One of the postage stamps I cut out is a Fleur De Lys.........In french 'Fleur' means flower & 'Lis' means Lily.
I also thought I might as well attach a larger one lol. This is a chipboard one from my stash which I covered in gesso, shabby pink fran-tage & shabby white fran-tage. I also added a resin frame & placed another postage stamp inside that.......this one of course is of the eiffel tower........

Added lots of gorgeous flowers, Beaded Stamens & Pomegranate Apples which I lurve. I also added a pearl string in amongst the flowers.
I've used a Melissa Frances Hanger to hang it. The super gorgeous image is one of Pion's Flower Girls. I picked this one because she is so pretty like my daughter & also faintly at the bottom there is french writing.........I think anyway lol. 
Of course lots of lace & organza rose trim as well.

Well that's it from me hope you like my hanging.........tbh I'm not sure if I don yet so will see how I feel when her room is finished lol.

Take care & enjoy your weekend & thanks for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxx

Hehe; after consulting Mr Google both you and Alyce came to the same conclusion. :-) Of course I could also make it easy for you and just say every week is a pink week, lol, but that would be boring, wouldn't it?! Great take on the theme; so much pink loveliness!
