Be Still...

... my beating heart!

I think Iv'e been hit with the lavender stick and may have to lie down in  a darkened room! Lavender is not a colour I use very often ( twice in a week!) and considering I have a button phobia it's a wonder this project happened at all!

It's a 6x6 inch canvas... painted with lilac acrylic paint, the edges daubed with Viva Croco in gold.... I was too impatient and dried it with a heat gun... the result.. not much crackle so I wiped some of the still sticky paint  off.

I stamped the dotty stamp and embossed it in gold, stuck it to a chipboard heart and stitched buttons onto it. Strips of gold faux mesh tinted with a purple Pro Marker surround the heart. 

The heart is mounted onto an old book page and glued to the canvas....

  1. This is beautiful Effie. I love the colour and the gold swirls make the buttons look extra special.
