That Craft Place Challenge
Its the turn of the mixed media girls and as always the theme is
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.
