Another Heart

I had a play with another chipboard heart,this time I gave it a coat of gesso the a coat of acrylic, a layer of my new product weathered wood crackle medium then almost covered it up lol.I added lace round the edge,small pearls round the inside,found a small postcard image(wish I had distressed edges now)a large advert image which I just tore the the edges of the couple,added some fibres,a small wooden heart(and pearls and fibres)won from Live and Love Crafts,then decided to add a flower and found one which looked like an old dried rose-perfect a quick spray of Ancient Copper mica and a flick of watered down white acrylic.

This is truly awesome...Love the vintage image and the lace. We are so blessed you joined our Challenge weeks ago and would love for you to join our new Challenge still ongoing at Word Art Wednesday. Want to leave you with the inspiration of the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 which says, "But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. " Have a lovely week.
