Little Wooden Heart

One of the things that I bought at Ally Pally in April was this little wooden heart, I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to do with it so set about altering it this morning.
I started by painting the heart with green acrylic paint and added a coat of crackle glaze over the top and then finished it off with a coat of white acrylic paint. Once that had completely dried I misted the heart with Maya mist dabbing off the excess with a tissue as I wanted it to be quite subtle. I had planned to add some bling, flowers and tissue paper but then I had another idea.


I had some Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden rub ons left on my desk from a previous project and I decided I wanted to add one onto the heart. It worked really well so I added a few more and then just kept going until I was happy with it. To seal the whole project I coated it with a layer of matt varnish, I am really pleased with how it turned out and is now hanging on our bedroom cabinet door.
