Morning all
Today ill be doing two posts this first one is for

That Craft Place Challenge 

Its the turn of the mixed media girls and as always the theme is
Anything goes

I have used this lovely MDF Heart
Don't forget to check out all the fab alterable MDF pieces available from That Craft Place.

I started with the heart which I left as is, no gesso or paint used on the base because I love the colour of the MDF.

Next I found some vintage illustrations of the heart, I printed these on tissue paper, the using cosmic shimmer , matt glue seal and glaze , I lay down the first sheet with the heart and script, once this was dry I added the single heart, once dry I added colour to this heart with intense pencils, then this was sealed with a very thin layer of gloss glaze.

I have used red , antique gold and copper embossing powders around the edge, then gently distressed it a little with a bit of sandpaper .

Next I took some thin copper wire and made some barb wire to wrap the heart, I poked small holes and glued the wire in place.
I also made a longer piece to make a hanger by wrapping around and through the top holes.

Then I added some flowers, leaves and a skull, then to finish it all off I added a lovely bit of being from my stash .

I hope you like it guys.
