believe in love


Today I want to share another MDF heart I have altered. There were some leavings of paper on the heart, but I thought it would give more interesting texture to the background so I left them.
I started with giving the whole surface a coat of heavy crackle paint from Deco Art. Then I arranged some metal parts from my ,,junk drawer'' including an old earring with a nice chain tassel.


I also added a metal flower and some chipboard flowers. All elements were glued with gel medium and given a coat of gesso. 


Then I started to colour the heart with acrylic paints and mists.
I also rubbed some metallic gilding wax and metal gloss paint on it and stamped some crackles with black ink. 
I added a vintage trinket from Prima( love it) and finished the whole piece with a lot of ink splashing. 


I would like to join the following challenges:

  11. I can't even begin to sy how stunning your altered heart is, Lula! I keep enlarging the photo to take in every last detail. The transformation of the heart and the embellishments is incredible. I've read your post a couple of times already, and am so inspired that I can't wait for some craft room time to try my hand at a version of your technique. Thank you so much for sharing your art with us at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge!
