With fresh eyes...

Hello and welcome, tonight I'm bringing you a heart that I started in the week. Some of you may know that I put it on face book at this stage because I was stuck what to do. Luckily My Son-in-Law  Mark suggest it needed something top left and several of my Twitter mates agreed. This  was really useful and with fresh eyes today I finished it.

Before I show you result let's look at how I got this far.

Using Fresco finish Acrylic from Paper Artsy in Merlin, I coated the the heart

How cool is that colour! 

I added a thin layer of crackle  glaze and once dry snowflake over the top.

I like the blue showing through.
I love the little sentiment on Darcy 09 so randomly stamped it over the heart in cornflower blue archival ink.

I mixed up some of the Merlin with water in a mini spritzer and sprayed the heart. Once this was dry I sprayed cosmic shimmer and when dry dripped some more Merlin randomly.

I loved the way the light blue twisted itself round the dark like they were made for each other. Lol.

Now to finish I cut some white/ grey board into a small tag and added a small addition to it with some chain. I used distress ink in chipped sapphire and broken china.

I found a small glass jar and filled it with glitter glue in blue and silver and then attached it to the tag with some grey string. 

Lastly I added a flower and finished with some gems.

Thank you to everyone who took time to comment I hope you like what I came up with.
Would love to hear your thoughts. Take care and see you soon.
