Have a Heart

Just a quick post...I have been playing around this morning before getting ready for work. I had a go at Frances project on day 1 over on the PA blog. You can see it here.

I took a size 8 tag and gave it a thin coat of blood orange, dried that and added a thin coat of crackle glaze, dried that and added a layer of snowflake. I distressed the edges and added a small amount of black ink.
Next I cut two paper artsy primitive hearts and stuck them together, added a thick layer of grunge paste and pushed a chain into it....let that all dry. I painted it in london bus and when that was dry sanded it back to reveal some of the grunge paste underneath. I gave it 2 coats of gloss glaze and let that dry.
To finish it off I wrapped some chain around and added a tiny padlock and key from my stash..stuck it to the tag and added some black ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by......
