The weekend is here. When the week has been especially trying, it can feel as if your inner child is a little battered.
Or maybe, the inner child is still whole, but its protective nook inside the heart sustained some damage, the glass window shattered.
To make it, I began with the Little Heart Niche, which as you can see, includes a handy hanger for the back.
I then reinforced the corners of the niche with some tape--just to give it some extra strength--and glued the niche onto the heart.
Next, I applied Distress Grit Paste, pressed heart stamps into the paste and dried with a heat gun. I darkened the edges of the heart with black ink and then sprayed everything with purple and black ink sprays. After the ink dried, I applied embossing ink, sprinkled Rocky Road Baked Texture onto the surface and activated with heat gun.
I then shredded and inked some cheese cloth, sprayed a small figurine candle with distress ink and adhered these inside the niche.
After gluing the paper clip and frame in place, I printed, cut out and inked the edges of my words and adhered them to the heart.
