Precious Memories

I made this mixed media heart for my mother-in-law for Christmas.
She's a very special person and amazing at 93...yes...93!

One of her fav' colours is blue and I found these really pretty flowers from 49 & Market (Blue Hawaiian Mixology).

I started with a small, white, wooden heart, prepped it with white gesso and then applied white, crackle paste.

As with my previous projects I used a selection of wedding embellishments, table confetti, jewellery pieces and gems.
Oh....and sisal...don't forget the sisal.

I added a little frame that I'd also covered in white crackle paint.

I love crackle paste... 

The photo is of my father-in-law who sadly I never met as he passed away when my husband was only 10.
Like most photos, it was tucked away in a box, so it was nice to be able to include it.
Thanks for stopping by x

Hi Jane, what a beautiful make, gorgeous embellishments and so personal for your MIL and what a grand age she is. So sad your husband lost his Dad so young, I'm sure your MIL will love it, Kate x
