Jess here with a little shrine for you. I have to tell you that I am REALLY bad at taking photos when I am creating. I sit down with good intentions every time and then about 3/4 of the way through I say many swear words for forgetting to take photos, yet again.
Here are a couple shots of the completed project. I just love how the chipboard can take layers and layers of paints and inks.
I painted the back panel using Ten Second Studios Patina Paints. I stippled some Dina Wakley Umber around the area where the heart sits. The top of the piece is painted with cheap craft store paint in a pale turquoise. I added Perfect Pearls to make it darker in areas. I topped the whole thing with Stained Glass paint in Aqua from Tattered Angels. The back piece is very flat. It looks like aged metal. The top has a very fine gloss to it.
The heart and flame are from Relics and Artifacts. I covered the heart with tissue wrap and used a gel medium to adhere it to the heart. I painted the flames with various metallic colors and used the Umber paint to dull it a bit. The heart has various distress colors on the side and then a coat of the Stained Glass Paint. The front of the heart has gold Perfect Pearls on it.
I promise to take more pictures for my next project!
