I hope you have had a good week and are ready for the weekend. Today we will be travelling back from our short break. I hope that the traffic is kind to us.
Being the first Friday of the month there is a new challenge starting on the Creative Artiste Challenge blog and the theme this time is Anything Goes. Our sponsor this time is Foilplay.
I decided to decorate a small heart wall hanging. I started by painting the heart with white Gesso. I gave it a couple of hearts. When it was dry I used some decoupage glue to attach some tissue paper. I attached it as one piece and I was so pleased that I had used the Gesso on the wood as it really showed up the design on the tissue paper. I sanded the edges of the shape to remove the excess tissue.
As I said at the top of this post Foilplay is the sponsor this month if you click on the logo you will be taken to their store. It is worth checking out they stock a lot of well known brands.
I used a Dreamees stamp for the sentiment I stamped it in read to match the ribbon (which came with the heart). I cut it out with the centre die from one of my Sue Wilson die sets. All the flowers I had in my stash it was nice to have a project to use them on I attached them with a gell glue. The final touch was to add some lace around the edge of the heart.
Here is the heart in place hanging in my lounge. I was really pleased with how this turned out and I enjoyed making it.
