Trust your a Heart

Hello there,

Back to shabby/mixed media for me today :-) I think it turned out alright. I used one of the papers from Craft For You Gossamer Basics to matt my background. Then I tore up a piece of paper from Noor's Bloc paper pad into two pieces with the torn edges and layered with some lace and I used a SnipArt chipboard border.

The main centre-piece is again from SnipArt ,I love this heart, don't you? I tied a large bow with cheesecloth and let it runs down behind the heart. I put a the large flatback pearl on a metal embellishment.


Used a paperclay frame I made and a large gorgeous metal butterfly charm on top of the heart to create dimension. I also glued some pearls on the butterfly to blend in with the large pearl charm.


I absolutely love these gorgeous flowers from 49 and Market which I have been hoarding lol. Chippy wood quote from Tim Holtz. And a couple of metal corners to the  corners and a splash of white paint... 



I hope you like it. Thank you for visiting xx
