Mixed Media Heart

Today I have another mixed media project that I made for a friend for Christmas.

This time I decorated a wooden heart and added 2 frames to include all of the family members.

 The heart was prepped with white gesso before adding a thick layer of white crackle paste to give it an aged, shabby chic look. I also added extra texture (although you can't see it very well in these photos) with a Cell Theory stencil and texture paste.

The exciting bit is adding all of the decorations and embellishments.

I used art stones, wedding accessories, flowers, glitter, wooden embellishments, Christmas table decorations, glass name it, I used

I used Metallique acrylic paints for the pink highlights...

...and then white gesso again to tone down the colours where they were a tad too brash.

More mixed media projects to follow, so I'll be back soon. 
Still learning and still lovin'.
