Pastel Heart - Mixed Media

Today I have another little mixed media heart to share with you.
I love making these as gifts. They're perfect for all sorts of occasions or just simply to inspire or encourage someone with a heartfelt sentiment.

I made this one for a special aunt.
I started by applying a base coat of white gesso and then different depth layers of white crackle paste. By applying different thicknesses of crackle paste you get different sized cracks.

I used a Crafters Workshop stencil called 'Cell Theory', with light paste, to add some extra texture and pattern. The little frame was also gesso'd n' crackled and added to the heart with a photo of my aunt and uncle. I stuck it on in such a way that the recipient can change the photo should they wish. 

The decorations are a mixture of wedding and Christmas embellishments, glass stones, sisal and gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

No glitter this time, no coloured paint effects, no razzamatazz.
Just a soft, feminine, decorative gift for a special person.
