"Dream" & Sweet Diane

I had so much fun playing with these wonderful wood hearts from ArtchixStudio.

I added a layer of resin and then sprinkled on delicious pink glitter.It spreads out evenly over the resin when you apply it...

I also added some resin wings on each side for added texture.

The bottom section of the heart has an image from the Dreaming in White Collage sheet found in the shop

Next I added warm brown trim to the side and mounted it to a bed of muslin.
Finishing it off with wire,vintage trim,metal button and a rusty key.

Thank you sweet Helga for bringing back the fun in mixed media and for lovely offerings to play with.xoxo

Lovely. A key and a heart always look great, but this is vintage and cool.
