Salvaged Heart


Hi Everyone,
I'm up on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Blog today with this beautiful shabby chic piece.
This was really simple to put together.  Start by covering both sides of  your Dress Form Tag with the paper of your choice.  I inked the edges of my paper. 
  
Cover the largest set of wings from the Wings Assortment with gold embossing powder. Once the wings have cooled off attach them to the back of the tag using a strong adhesive. 

 Cover the base of your Flourished Heart Frame with DIna Wakley Media Paint in Blushing.  This is a bold pink and I used a wash of cheap brown acrylic paint to tone it down for this project.  

Cover the top of your frame with Finnabair Paint in Royal Red.  While the paint is still wet cover the heart with Distress Embossing Powder in Vintage Photo.  This makes the heart look old and kind of crusty.  Perfect for this project.     


Glue your frame together and attach it to the dress form tag.  Finishing the main part of the piece just took using a Tim Holtz Chip word that I banged on the side of my desk to ding it up.  Vintage photo Distress Ink covers the chip word.  
I used an old spindle to make my base.  I stuck a Tim Holtz Memo Pin in the top and then wedged the finished project into it.  I love the look of sari ribbon for making bows.  This one has a large off white bow and a smaller pink bow to cover where the pin got stuck into the spindle. 
The spindle is fun because you can just pop this piece out and change it up for the season.  
Enjoy!

  1. This is such a beautiful piece of art! I really love how you pulled all the components together and made this so cohesive. Not only is it lovely to look at, but it provokes thought. I find it inspiring and feel like it has such a great story to tell! Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
