From the heart….

Hello everyone…whose getting excited about Valentine’s day?…Its nearly here. And one of our talented designers, Elena Olinevich, has created the most precious of gifts in honour of it. Here’s what Elena created and what she had to say:

Recently I have fallen in love with OTP projects, and though I ‘m making just my first steps, I like experimenting with my favourite fabric – Linen.

I am from Belarus and linen is symbolic for my country, and associates with our national traditions.
So I sewed heart shapes using linen and decorated them with lace, sewing lace and cheesecloth. Then I added some bows made of lace trims
and decorated them with flowers. I didn’t want to be them in traditional pink/red colors, so I used Mia White and Dahlia -purple.

As a final step, I used my favourite technique - I covered everything just slightly with gesso, including the linen too.

Kind regards,

Elena.
