'Home is where the heart is...' is the new challenge theme begining today over at Try it on Tuesdays.
This wooden hanging heart was a bargain buy earlier this year for a £1 in a Supermarket bargain bin.
The inside heart hangs freely from the rim,but it was easier to get the photos on a flat suface.
It started out a rather bright yellow and blue which I painted over with cream acrylics.
You can still see a bit of the blue showing through when you look at it close up.
The outside rim had a thin covering of crackle paint . When dry I used a a crackle stamp with metalic ink for a little more details and a slight rub down with a little gold gilding wax.
The center heart on both sides was covered with papers and elements from the Graphics 45 French Country paper stack. I used Antique gold Frantage embossing powders to accent the edges.
The wooden leaves were also painted with acrylics and rubbed with some gilding wax. The flowers came from my stash.
I do hope you will pop over to see what we made and share with us your take on this new theme.
Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comment
. Please forgive me if I don't get to visit you all this week. we are taking advantage of the lovely weather here in the U.K. this week and are in Scotland in the caravan.
I have recently read about a new challenge blog called Altered Eclectics , so I will be joining their first challenge with my altered hanging.
