Anyone for the White Heart?

Sorry, I'm not offering to meet you for a drink (although if I could  I would love to)it's just my way of introducing you to my latest project!
I bought a wooden heart on a rare visit to The Range - couldn't wait to get started - gessoed it, took a photo then left it!
So today I set to and finished it, I photographed as I went along.
         painted with Paper Artsy Snowflake Fresco opaque, 

Spread on a little crackle glaze then more Snowflake,
           added texture using a Dylusions stencil,
flourish and.....
                                        tattered florals.....

                           ..snowflake onto a text stamp....
...and there had to be some lace!

I think I'll be making some more for presents some time!

I have no idea what blogger is doing tonight but this has taken me an age to write and I have no idea what is happening with the photos!!!

I would like to enter the following challenges

Thanks for looking, Chris

I love this. The textures and femininity of it are fabulouis I keep thinking I must investigate The Range, as it seems to have so much to offer. One is opening soon, well, it may have opened already in Maidstone, about an hour away from me. Julie Ann xxx

Such a lovely project, Chris, you should make more. Thank you for showing us the steps.
Do you think we will get the white stuff soon? It is almost cold enough isn't it?

Stay warm and creative!
