Hanging Heart

I've been busy this week, my sketching has been put on hold for the moment whilst I create other beautiful things :D

I'm showing you a couple of close ups first so you can see the flowers better.  All these were from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts and The Ribbon Girl.
There are some torn scraps of paper from Lemoncraft under these.

The hear was avert cheep wooden one I picked up in a Hobby Craft.  It was red to start off with.
I've used several layers of gesso to make it white.  On top of this I've used some modelling clay and stencils for the brick wall and words.

That was then coated with another layer of gesso before I added the embellishments.

The bits I've not mentioned so far are a resin picture frame and tiny silver dragonfly beads.

I've created this shabby / vintage wall hanging for my hubby to give to his mum for Mother's Day, we know she'll love it :D
