All You Need is Love!

Yippee.. Today you get to see some actual artwork... I've not been the best at blogging lately as I have actually been spending my time making stuff.. I know shock horror!!!
So today I wanted to share with you a piece I made for this months
Artistic Stamper Challenge,
It's been a while since i've joined in so when I saw it was 'Hearts & Flowers' the perfect project came to mind.
*****
Remember this:

Well I decided I needed to re-purpose it as it wasn't floating my boat any more so I ripped it apart, jiggled it about and came up with this.



I gave the whole thing a couple of coats of gesso, and then a top coat of 'snowflake' fresco finish paint with a a light rub of 'ruby' & 'white fire' treasured gold to highlight the die-cut texture I had added.


I embellished with a selection of fimo pieces that I had made {mini frames and wing}


Several hearts made from 'hearty clay' {which is a very lightweight fluffy airdry clay} which I painted with 'ruby' treasured gold.


And then I finished with a few pins & trinkets.
The inspiration for this piece was from me old young mate Hels who had a piece in the craft stamper a couple of months ago that was inspired by Finnabair.
But obviously i've given it my own twist.
I hope you have enjoyed the art today,
I'll be back again later this week with more as I have a few journal pages i've not yet shared.
Till then..
Stay Inky

What a gorgeous project Nicky! I love all the texture and interest created with the die cuts and the touches of Treasure Gold are so subtle but really beautiful. It's a very elegant piece and I love it.

Wowsers, this looks fantastic!!! Love your remake of the old piece ( which I remembered well ☺) Attaching various canvasses together is such a cool idea. Totally adore you home made embellishments too and such cool colours. I am dying to know how you made that wing??? Did you have a mold, and if so, where did you get it?? I have been looking for a wing mold for ages and this one is so cool!
