Altered Heart Hanger - DT project for Country View Challenges

Hello all, nice to have you here today!
Fresh back from holidays I want to share with you my second project for the June challenge "Hearts" at Country View Challenges.
I bought this white painted wooden heart at a Dollar store some time ago and decided to alter it a 
little bit.




First I painted the heart with deco art media fluid acylics in magenta - but it turned out too colorful. So I took some pearl iridicent acrylic paint to tone it down.


It belongs to the light, how the color shimmers - sometimes more pinkish, sometimes more golden. I like the effect very much!

To alter the heart more, I used the little wooden pieces you find in every canvas package. I painted the wood with DecoArt media fluid acrylics.

I glued the pieces on top of the heart and added some mica flaces and gold glitter strips from 13@rts.

The paper doily I toned down with DI antique line.

Now I put everything together. A vintage photo from finnabair, two tags from some clothes I bought, a string, fibres and flowers. The flowers I painted here and there with some iridicent paint. To add a little bit more gold, I glued down a golden brad.
At last I glued down a bow as a hanger.

Here you can see the back of the heart.

......and some close ups.




Now I hope, you´ll find time to join in with our challenge this month, as always you have the chance to win a 20£ voucher for the shop!

Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful sunny and hot weekend.

  1. This is so lovely, Evelyn, with such a gentle nostalgic feel to it. I love the finish on the heart itself and the floral embellishments really come to life with that lovely delicate straw. Sorry I've missed so much here lately. Things will be calmer soon!
