The Key To My heart

I saw the fabulous MoodBoard over at Dusty Attic and just had to have a go, the colours and images are gorgeous, as you may know I love mixed Media and creating with chipboard, so I
 had this fantastic Dusty Attic Gorgeous Entangled Heart in my stash and couldn't resist using it on a wooden heart I've had in my stash a while just waiting for the right moment, 


I added a little texture to the base of my wooden heart with some  Finnabair stencil paste and a Finnabair stencil, then used some Lindy's gang Flat Magicals diluted with water over the top, when dry I added some crackle paste here and there then went over this with some vintage photo distress ink, and went over that with some waxes by Finnabair to tie in the colours,


I took the Enchanted heart which I had previously coloured with three colours of Finnabair wax and added some pieces of cut off chip board behind to raise it up, then hot glued it in place, this allows other chip boards  and embellishments to be placed under and around it,
Taking some Foliage #2 and mini Branches #2 I added some crackle paste to some, and some pumice stone effect paste to others, then gave them also a coat or two of the waxes,


A little Sisal in natural colour and a hint of lace are also in the background,


This wooden heart has a very long point to the base so I allowed the foliage to follow the shape, simply layering the depths, colours and finishes together,

To finish the heart off I added some of my paper flowers made with Lady E Dies from the Flower 5 Hydrangea collection, onto 180 GSM paper coloured with Versa colour Misty Mauve and Versa Magic Pink Petunia  when I had shaped them I hot glued them in place,

In real life it looks beautiful, and I love it!!! Lol
