Stitched paper quilt with cut heart overlay

It’s a bit hard to tell in this photo what we’re looking at. The foundation is a piece of scrapbook paper designed by Tim Holtz. On top of that is a quilted collage that is stitched together, made entirely of paper items, which in turn has been stitched down to the foundation. The top layer is one of my stitched collages made from both fabric and paper that did not suit me after it was done, so I cut it up into heart shapes to use on future stitched collages. The “waste” as it might be called, was then stitched overtop the two previous pieces. This is one of those items that loses a little in photographic translation…it is easier to see what you are looking at IRL and to discern what it is.
