Altered Heart

Hi all,

Thought I would share this project with you.  A young friend of mine was re-decorating her bedroom and brought me a bag full of oddments that she thought I might be able to re-cycle!

Well one of the items was this wooden heart:

After painting it with gesso, several times, I painted it purple with acrylic paint.  Added a doylie, flowers, swirls and a die cut butterfly.  The small butterflies and pearls were cut from a stem which was also in the bag of oddments.  Added a pink ribbon bow and some wire to hang it. 

My friend has hung it in her newly decorated purple bedroom.

Thanks for looking

  5. Hello, I just found your blog and I am so excited. Your blog is right up my alley in the things that I look for in a site: 1. an artful imagination, 2. noncommercial, 3. paper crafts, 4. journaling (I never thought of incorporating a calendar into my art journal, what a great idea). I'm looking forward to becoming blogging buds. Your newest follower, Connie :) Please accept my invitation to visit and hopefully follow my blog, as well. Have a great weekend!
